Meghan Markle’s new book has failed to make the top 50 list in the UK, much to the surprise of no one. Seeing how both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle threw the entire royal family under the bus in their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the UK wants nothing to do with them or her new children’s book for that matter. Here’s what you need to know.
According to Page Six, Meghan’s new book, The Bench, sold a little over 3,000 copes during its first week. In comparison, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman sold over 28,000 copies in the same time period.
Meghan Markle’s New Children’s Book Is Already A Flop
The book is based on a Father’s Day poem that Meghan wrote for her husband, Prince Harry. Back in May, the Duchess of Sussex explained that her new book was inspired by a poem that she wrote for Harry shortly after the birth of their son Archie Harrison back in May of 2019. The young tot turns 2 this coming Thursday.
“The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” Meghan said in the press release from publisher Random House Children’s Books. “That poem became this story.”
The book is illustrated by Caldecott-winning artist Christian Robinson. Meghan’s book explores the bond between a father and son and is based on Prince Harry’s own relationship with little Archie, but seen through the eyes of a mother.
The book features an illustration of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newborn daughter, Lilibet “Lili” Diana, as well as a drawing of Harry and Archie feeding the family’s rescue chickens. A red-headed soldier resembling Harry is also pictured in the book.
