The Duchess of Sussex reads ‘The Bench’, the kiddie book inspired by her family life with royal husband Prince Harry, from the garden of the family mansion in California.
AceShowbiz -Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has taken her children’s book “The Bench” to YouTube – and she’s reading it on camera herself.
The British royal – who has son Archie, two, and daughter Lilibet, four months, with husband Prince Harry – has filmed the special appearance in the garden of the couple’s California mansion and the tome’s publishers, Penguin Random House, shared the clip on their Brightly Storytime channel.
Introducing herself as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan said, “Today I’m going to be read to you my book called The Bench with illustrator Christian Robinson… I asked him to do something special for me and use watercolours, which isn’t the normal medium he works in but he did it to make it extra special.”
The Duchess explained how she wrote the picture book as a tribute to her husband and son.
She added, “I wrote this as a poem for my husband and our son Archie, and then turned it into a book so you could enjoy it too.”
As the video came to a close, Meghan – who wore a casual blue shirt – gushed about how happy she was to have shared the story on camera.
She said, “I hope you enjoyed ‘The Bench’, I loved being able to share it with you.”
She went on to wish her readers well, willing them to try to find their own bench to share with a loved one, echoing the story that takes place in the 40-page picture book.
“And now I hope you’re able to go and find your own special bench, or chair, or little quiet nook,” she concluded. “Just a place that means something to you that you can share with someone you love. Have a great day and come back to Brightly Storytime soon. Bye!”
