Meghan Markle Wrote a Children’s Book Inspired by Her Husband and Son’s Bond.
The Bench began as a poem Meghan wrote for Prince Harry on his first Father’s Day.Meghan Markle is the author of an upcoming children’s book inspired by Prince Harry and their son Archie, who was born in May 2019. Their daughter is expected to arrive this summer.The Bench, out on June 8, will explore the father-son bond seen through the eyes of a mother. The Bench “touchingly captures the evolving and expanding relationship between fathers and sons and reminds us of the many ways that love can take shape and be expressed in a modern family,” according to Penguin Random House.In a statement, Meghan revealed that the children’s book began as a poem she wrote for her husband on Father’s Day the month after their son Archie was born. “That poem became this story,” she said.While the book is inspired by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s family, the illustrations—drawn by Caldecott Award-winning artist Christian Robinson—depict families of all backgrounds.”Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor 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,” Meghan said. “My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the make up, as much as it does with mine.”Meghan will also narrate the audiobook version, in case you want the Duchess of Sussex to read your children a bedtime story. The audiobook will be released in the U.S. and Canada through the Listening Library.The crossover is fitting, as reading books appears to be a part of the Sussex family’s routine. In an Instagram video, Meghan read Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal to her son. Oprah had gifted Archie that particular book when he was born—it came complete with an “Archie’s Book Club” sticker!

“To receive help is not a sign of weakness.”

Prince Harry is opening up once again about his mental health.

Since stepping down as senior royals last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not been shy about shedding light on their time in the royal family and the struggles they faced.

We all saw that tell-all interview with Oprah where the couple talked about their relationship with the royal family and the mental health issues they’d been through because of it.

Now, Prince Harry and Oprah have launched their new Apple TV+ series, The Me You Can’t See, which centers around mental health. The series features stories from known faces like Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, and DeMar DeRozan as well as revealing conversations with both Prince and Oprah.
The Duke of Sussex has previously revealed how he turned to drugs and alcohol after the death of his mother, suffering from panic attacks amid public appearances.

“Before I even left the house, I was pouring with sweat and my heart was racing. I was in the fight-or-flight mode. I would feel as though my body temperature was two or three degrees warmer than everybody else in the room.”

He also spoke about what prompted him to seek therapy, saying it took “meeting and being with Meghan” to get him to go.
“I knew that if I didn’t do the therapy and fix myself that I was going to lose this woman who I could see spending the rest of my life with.”

Prince Harry says he’s in a much better place now since seeking the help and stepping away from the royal family to focus on his life with Meghan and Archie.
“I’m now more comfortable in my own skin. I don’t get panic attacks. I have learned more about myself in the last four years than I have in the 32 years before that. I have my wife to thank for that.”

He went on to encourage people to seek help for their mental health saying, “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world, more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”

May has always been a special month in Duke and Duchess of Sussex World, due to the Harry and Meghan wedding anniversary and Archie birthday. However, this year May brought the extra sauce!!! So a little over halfway through and on the eve of Harry and Meghan anniversary, we recap this amazing month so far.

On May 4, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex announced her debut children’s book The Bench , illustrated by the very talented and impressive Christian Robinson. Not surprisingly, it quickly became a bestseller on multiple lists.

A few ingenious Sussex quads the tribal supporters of Harry and Meghan , created the sussexsquad book drive, with an independent bookseller to donate copies of The Bench and other lovely children’s titles to some selected organizations, with over 2200 books donated so far .
