Meghan Markle fans pledge to buy multiple copies of new book to support her

Meghan Markle fans are pledging to buy more than one copy of her new book after hearing that she is set to publish a children's picture book.

The 'Sussex Squad' are rallying behind the Duchess after the news that Meghan, 39, wrote the book from a poem she wrote to Prince Harry on Father's Day in 2019.

The former Suits actress announced the news of her venture yesterday, with fans quick to praise the royal.

The book, called The Bench, will look at the special relationship between a father and son from a mother's eyes.

Meghan said Prince Harry's relationship with son Archie inspired her to complete the book.

Fans have already planned to purchase more than one copy, with Athena on Twitter saying: "I ordered five so I can donate them."

Another penned: "So proud of Meghan, will get two copies for my kids."

While a third chipped in: "Early Christmas orders for my nieces and nephews done."

Several users said they plan to buy multiple copies to donate to their local public libraries or children's schools.

Natasha on Twitter said: "It would be amazing if we could start a GoFundMe or something similar where we donate money and the amount we can reach will be used to buy The Bench copies for children's hospitals or children in need around the world.

"We can both support Meghan and make babies happy!"

Members of the Sussex squad loved the idea and liked the tweet more than 500 times.

It will be illustrated by best-selling artist Christian Robinson and published by Random House Books on June 8.

In a statement, Meghan said: “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. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy, and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens.”

The duchess hopes the story "resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine."

Meghan, who is expecting a baby girl with Prince Harry, has also narrated the audiobook version.

Mallory Loehr, EVP, and publisher of Random House Books said The Bench is 'timeless'.

She added: "It feels destined to become one of those books that people will be reading for generations to come.”
