Meghan Markle Celebrates 'The Bench' Becoming a Best-Seller with a Touching Note

Meghan Markle’s debut children’s book, The Bench, is officially a #1 New York Times best-seller! The Duchess celebrated the achievement by writing a touching thank you note to readers on the Archewell website, saying “While this poem began as a love letter to my husband and son, I’m encouraged to see that its universal themes of love, representation and inclusivity are resonating with communities everywhere. In many ways, pursuing a more compassionate and equitable world begins with these core values. 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.”

As Archewell notes, The Bench “started as a Father’s Day poem for her husband, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, and expanded into a children’s book with imagery that captures moments of love and shared experiences between a diverse group of fathers and sons.”

The book is illustrated in watercolors by Caldecott-winning illustrator Christian Robinson, and it’s truly a must-have for Father’s Day (for parents and kids alike) if you’re looking for a special gift!
