Set to be published on June 8th, the book tells the story of the “special bond between father and son—as seen through a mother’s eyes.”
Beginning as a Father’s Day poem which the Duchess of Sussex wrote for Prince Harry, a month after the birth of their now nearly 2-year-old son Archie, the description of the book reads that it seeks to “capture 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.”

Speaking of the book Meghan said, “My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”
About the illustrations by award-winning artist Christian Robinson she added, “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.”
