Meghan Markle is a woman who wears many hats—not only did she do a flawless job while working with the royal family, but she’s also (a) an amazing actress (ever watched Suits?), (b) a staunch supporter of women’s rights, and can now add (c) children’s book author to her already-impressive resume. Meghan unfortunately has not revived her defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, at the moment…but this is certainly a step in the right direction!
Royal reporter Omid Scobie announced the big news in a tweet and wrote, “Duchess Meghan has written her first children’s book, The Bench, about the special bond between father and son—as seen through a mother’s eyes.” And if that wasn’t already super touching, Omid said that Meghan’s book is “inspired by Prince Harry and Archie’s close relationship.” Awww!

In an official press release via Penguin Random House, Meghan revealed “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day a month after Archie was born…that poem became this story.” The book’s official description is already out (gotta love Amazon), and reads:
“In The Bench, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, touchingly captures the evolving and expanding relationship between father and son and reminds us of the many ways that love can take shape and be expressed in a modern family.
Evoking a deep sense of warmth, connection, and compassion, The Duchess’s debut children’s book gives us a window into shared and enduring moments between a diverse group of fathers and sons—moments of peace and reflection, trust and belief, discovery and learning, and comfort and nurture.”
The Bench is set to release on June 8, which means you can get the book juuuust in time for Father’s Day. If you wanna get your hands on Meghan’s first book ever, you can preorder through the link below:
