Meghan Markle has penned down her unreserved appreciation to those who supported her new project after the children’s book became a New York Times bestseller, saying her story about fathers and sons depicts “another side of masculinity.”
The Duchess of Susses said she is “encouraged to see that the book’s universal themes of love, representation and inclusivity are resonating with communities everywhere.”
In a message published on Harry and Meghan’s Archewell website, she said, “Equally, to depict another side of masculinity, one grounded in connection, emotion, and softness is to model a world that so many would like to see for their sons and daughters alike. Thank you for supporting me in this special project.”
Meghan Markle’s book, titled “The Bench,” became No. 1 on the New York Times’ list of best-selling children’s picture books after its release last week.
According to the publisher, the story in the book depicts “the special relationship between father and son, as seen through a mother’s eyes.” It was inspired by a Father’s Day poem that Meghan wrote for her husband Prince Harry after the May 2019 birth of Archie.
You will also see a storyline about their newborn baby “Lilibet Diana. “The Bench” as of the time of writing this story holds a five-star rating on Amazon with 680 reviews.
According to the Daily Mail report, “The Bench” did not make it to the top 50 list in the UK this week.
Just a few days to the release of “The Bench,” Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the arrival of baby Lilibet Diana. The family of four currently live in California after they officially resigned as senior royals early last year.
