- 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.
"The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father's Day, the month after Archie was born," she said in a statement.
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.
"It gives readers a window into shared and enduring moments between a diverse group of fathers and sons," read part of the publisher's statement.
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 baby, a daughter this time.
Briefly News previously reported that Prince Harry and Meghan are expecting their second bonny baby child. They revealed in the interview with Oprah that they are having a girl.
