Archie Harrison can be one of the stars of mom Meghan Markle‘s new children’s book, but he also likes to add it to his growing library of stories to enjoy with his parents.
In an NPR interview published on Sunday, her husband said Prince HarryOn Father’s First Day as a father of two, the 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex spoke about the couple’s two-year-old son’s reaction to The Bench, an illustrated picture book depicting the special relationship between father and son, as seen through the eyes of a mother. It was inspired by a 2019 poem that Meghan wrote to Harry on Father’s Day 2019, a month after her son was born.
“Archie loves the book,” Meghan told NPR, “which is great because he has an insatiable appetite for books and whenever we read him a book he says, ‘Again, again!’ But now the fact that he loves The Bench and we can say, ‘Mommy wrote this for you’ is incredible. “
The bank is illustrated by Christian Robinson and consists of a series of vignettes showing different fathers and their sons sharing a bench while doing simple activities together, like drinking apple juice or looking at the stars. The book also includes illustrations by Archie and Harry themselves, as well as other father-son duos. A father and his boy pose together in matching pink tutus.
