After Prince Harry performed at a concert, now Meghan Markle is also exploring a new artistic side as a writer.
Through a press release, the ex-actress announced that on June 8 she would present her first children’s book, entitled “The Bench”.
Markle herself assured that “it is a story that captures the multitude of ways in which love is expressed in a modern family”, and is inspired by her personal experiences.
“The Bench started out as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day a month after Archie was born. Now that poem has become a longer story that the illustrator Christian Robinson has accompanied by beautiful and colorful watercolors that perfectly capture the warmth, joy and comfort that the relationship between parents and children supposes during all facets of life ” he added.
Meghan Markle’s new side
In recent months, the American had shown her more maternal side by taking care of Archie and her pregnancy, while her husband traveled to the United Kingdom to say goodbye to his grandfather, Prince Philip of Edinburgh.
Now, it is likely that he was actually also fine-tuning the last details of this project, which is published by the publisher Penguin Random House. And in the same statement he assured that with him he hopes to send a message of love to everyone.
“My hope now is that this book resonates with all families, regardless of what they are, as much as it has with mine.”
In some images leaked on social networks, you can see that it is an illustrated book, with short sentences and rhymes, which make the poem easily read by the little ones. In addition, according to People, the images are the authorship of Christian Robinson and portray a bench that can be seen from the window, where Meghan watches her husband playing with their son.
