Meghan Markle Writes Sentimental Children’s Book About Sons’ Relationship With Their Fathers Inspired By Harry And Archie

Meghan Markle has written a sentimental children’s book about sons’ relationships with their fathers.

According to her, the book titled ‘The Bench’ was inspired by her husband Prince Harry’s bond with their son, Archie, who turns two tomorrow, May 6.

The book includes an illustration of Harry as a soldier lifting up his son Archie while a representation of Meghan Markle looks at them through a window with tears in her eyes.

The Duchess of Sussex said the 40-page book, illustrated by Pixar artist Christian Robinson, grew out of a poem she wrote for Harry a month after the birth of their son.

In her words;

“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.

My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the make-up, as much as it does with mine.”

The words on the page reads: “Looking out at My Love and our beautiful boy… And here in the window I’ll have tears of joy…”

However, the book comes at a time when Meghan and Harry’s relationships with their own fathers are strained.

Note that Meghan hasn’t spoken to her father in three years and they were even embroiled in a court case.

Also,Harry recently opened up about being cut off financially by his father.

Speaking about the release of the book, Royal biographer Penny Junor said;

 “It’s very easy to talk about relationships between fathers and sons when they are two years old.

But problems come when the children are older — as Meghan found out with her father and Harry with Prince Charles.

So it is an odd thing to have done.

She is on dodgy ground because of her relationship with her father and Harry with his.

But it is also a very schmaltzy book by the sounds of it.”
