Meghan Markle Book: Meghan Markle’s children’s book The Bench became The New York Times Bestseller. Markle took to her website, Archewell Foundation, and wrote a note celebrating the news.
She wrote, “While this poem began as a love letter to my husband and son, I’m encouraged to see that its universal themes of love, representation and inclusivity are resonating with communities everywhere.”
Talking further on the book which is now a number one illustrated work, Markle added, “In many ways, pursuing a more compassionate and equitable world begins with these core values. Equally, to depict another side of masculinity — one grounded in connection, emotion, and softness — is to model a world that so many would like to see for their sons and daughters alike. Thank you for supporting me in this special project.”
The Bench released on June 8, it has been illustrated by Christian Robinson. The book according to Markle, had started as a father’s day poem to her husband Prince Harry.
Markle appreciated Robinson’s work and further wrote, “That poem became this story. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolour illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been making headlines even before they got married. The couple later stepped back from their royal duties in 2020 and came out with big revelations in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
