Meghan Markle Reveals The Sentimental Father’s Day Gift She Decided On For Prince Harry

Meghan Markle made sure Prince Harry’s first Father’s Day was a special one. In an interview with NPR Weekend Edition on Sunday, the former Suits actress divulged details about her new children’s book, The Bench, and a “sentimental” gift she planned to give him.

During her first interview since her and Harry’s bombshell sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan said she thought, “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,” the Duchess of Sussex added.

Meghan decided to give Harry a bench for his first Father’s Day, weeks after the couple welcomed son Archie in 2019. Meghan and Harry are now parents of two, as Meghan gave birth to daughter Lili earlier this month.

The back of the bench features a plaque, where Meghan’s poem appears. It reads, “This is your bench/ Where life will begin/ For you and our son/ Our baby, our kin.”

Meghan also opened up about her children’s book and highlighted the importance of having other ethnicities, religions, cultures, and more represented among its illustrations,

“Growing up, I remember so much how it felt to not see yourself represented,” she said. “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.”

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

The Bench is a “love story,” Meghan added.

“I often find, and especially in this past year, I think so many of us realized how much happens in the quiet,” she shared. “It was definitely moments like that, watching them from out of the window and watching [my husband] just, you know, rock him to sleep or carry him or, you know … those lived experiences, from my observation, are the things that I infused in this poem.”

“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.
