Meghan Markle on how Harry and Diana inspired book in only interview since Oprah

Meghan Markle has spoken out in her first interview since the bombshell revelations with Oprah Winfrey at the beginning of March.

The Duchess of Sussex has written a bestselling children’s book, The Bench, and she has revealed that she loves seeing Prince Harry rocking Archie to sleep in a chat with Samantha Balaban on her NPR Weekend radio show, The Weekend Edition.

It was the first time that Meghan has spoken publicly since the birth of her daughter Lilibet on June 4.

Meghan shared details about what inspired her to write the book and that how watching Harry with Archie filled her with love as well how Princess Diana was in her mind while writing it.

The book is an intimate, personal insight into her family life which she hopes will transcend other families across the globe.

She said: “”It’s a love story. It’s really just about growing with someone and having this deep connection and this trust so that, be at good times or bad, you know that you had this person.

“I really hope that people can see this as a love story that transcends the story of my family.”

Meghan has previously described her book as an exploration of the “special relationship between father and son,” releasing the statement: “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born.

“That poem became this story. My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

After the release of the book, Meghan said in a statement: “While this poem began as a love letter to my husband and son, I’m encouraged to see that its universal themes of love, representation and inclusivity are resonating with communities everywhere.

“In many ways, pursuing a more compassionate and equitable world begins with these core values.”
