During the interview, Meghan spoke about her new children’s book The Bench, her relationship with husband Prince Harry, as well as his new role as a dad to Lilibet and Archie, 2.

“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,” she said of the book.

Meghan also talked about her upbringing, and hoping that the book provides some representation.

“Growing up, I remember so much how it felt to not see yourself represented. Any child or any family hopefully can open this book and see themselves in it, whether that means glasses or freckled or a different body shape or a different ethnicity or religion,” she said.

Meghan also revealed there are “little small moments” in the book that infuse personal memories, including her favorite flower, her mother-in-law’s favorite flower and the family’s rescue chickens.

“I needed my girls in there,” Meghan added.

She also revealed she came up with the book after she gave her husband a bench for Father’s Day in 2020.

“As most of us do, you go, ‘What am I going to get them as a gift?’ And I thought I just wanted something sentimental and a place for him to have as a bit of a home base with our son,” she explained.

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

She also recently opened up about how last year went.
