- What began as Meghan Markle's poem for Prince Harry metamorphosed into a book
- The Duchess of Sussex will now publish the book christened The Bench followed by an audio version
- Meghan and Harry have been in the news lately since their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on their decision to step down from royal duties
Meghan Markle, also known as the Duchess of Sussex, is on course towards releasing a children's book titled The Bench.
According to her, the storyline stems from her observation of the father-son relationship between her husband Prince Harry and Archie.
The book, set to be published on June 8, will also exist in audio form to be released at a later date.
She said in a statement:
"The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father's Day, the month after Archie was born."
The Duchess expressed that she hopes the book will resonate with all families regardless of their background and setup.
Since it is a children's book, the writings are complemented by images from illustrator Christian Robinson.
The book, which is Meghan's first piece of children's literature, will be published by Penguin Random House.
Part of the publisher's statement read:
"It gives readers a window into shared and enduring moments between a diverse group of fathers and sons."
Meghan previously wrote a blog christened The Tig, an online lifestyle channel that folded when she started dating Prince Harry.
The Bench is another of the ventures the couple has been involved in since 2020 when they left royal life, moved to America and started leading ordinary lives.
Meghan, for instance, was the voice artist for Disney's movie Elephant, and they have a charity organisation called Archewell.
Archie celebrates his second birthday on May 6, at a time the Duchess is expectant with their second born, a girl.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Prince Harry has yet to address the 'issues' he has faced with the Royal family despite going back home to attend the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip.
Harry allegedly conversed with his father Prince Charles and his brother Prince William.
Although they have had conversations, reports state that Prince Harry has yet to speak on the 'outstanding issues' surrounding the family. Harry was allegedly only back in the UK to support his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and to honour the life of his grandfather.
