Meghan Markle has announced plans to release her first children’s book.
On Tuesday, it was revealed that the Duchess Of Sussex’s first book, The Bench, will be released on 8 June, focussing on the “relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life”.
“The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” Meghan explained in a statement.
“Christian [Robinson, the book’s illustrator] 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.”

The couple said when their Netflix deal was first announced that they would be producing “content that informs but also gives hope,” from documentaries and scripted series, to features and children’s programming.
Meghan and Harry also have an additional deal with Spotify to host and produce their own shows with the music and podcast streaming service.
