Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s debut deserves more praise than panning
The actions of the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex regularly come under scrutiny, and Meghan’s new children’s book is no exception. Her first foray into the world of writing, The Bench seeks to capture the tenderness of a father-son relationship through verse, inspired by a poem written for her husband on Fathers’ Day. Although clearly a deeply personal book, the sample pages of The Bench available show illustrations by Christina Robinson that resemble not just Harry and Archie. It is refreshing how the Duchess of Sussex’s debut manages to be inclusive and makes a diverse range of fathers and sons feel seen on the book’s pages.
