The Duchess of Sussex is preparing to release her first book, The Bench, next month, inspired by Prince Harry and their son, Archie. However, Meghan was drawn into a new row as leading children’s writers slammed editors for prioritizing ‘fame over quality’.

British children’s book author Gareth P Jones, who wrote the Dragon Detective Agency book series, told The Telegraph: “Meghan is not the only one who wants to write a story inspired by her children or her animals. company or, in his case, a bench.A lot of parents do that.

“Those who are not famous but good writers sometimes make books out of it. Those who are famous but not good writers always get books out of it. “

Fleur Hitchcock, author of the children’s thriller Waiting for Murder, added that there had been “absolute disasters” over the years.

She said: “There have been absolute disasters over the years.”

Announcing her new book, Meghan said: “The bench started out as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born.

“This poem has become this story.

“I hope The Bench resonates in every family, whatever its makeup, as much as it does mine.”

Meghan also told the audiobook version of the story.

A statement said: “Inspired by her own husband and son, The Duchess of Sussex’s debut poignantly captures the evolution and growth of the relationship between fathers and sons and reminds us of the many ways in which the love can be shaped and expressed in a modern family.

“The Bench evokes a deep sense of warmth, connection and compassion, and gives readers a glimpse of shared and enduring moments between a diverse group of fathers and sons – times of peace and reflection, of trust and faith, of discovery and learning, and lasting comfort. “

Meghan has, however, been criticized for using the title ‘Duchess’ on the cover of her new book – prompting calls for her to be stripped of her title.

But, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, was quick to defend her.

Fergie, who has written over 70 books herself, said anyone who has managed to sit down and write a book should be “supported and respected.”

The Duchess of York said: “To sit down and work hard to write a book, in any genre, should be supported and respected.

“Encouraging literacy in general, not just children’s books, is a love of mine and encouraging more women to get creative and put out a book is very well done. “

The Duchess of York is well known for writing over 70 titles to her name and is set to release her first adult fiction novel titled Her Heart For a Compass.

Meghan’s new book comes after her and Prince Harry’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

Meghan has claimed she was close to suicide during her 18 months as a royal.
