Meghan Markle is set to give a new interview after giving birth to her second child, Lilibet Diana, earlier in the month.
On Sunday, June 20, which is Father’s Day, Meghan will be a guest on NPR’s Weekend Edition with Samantha Balaban.
The interview, scheduled to air from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Eastern Time, will focus on Meghan’s new book, The Bench.
Omid Scobie, a royal biographer and friend of the Sussexes, tweeted earlier today that the interview comes “fresh off the heels of her first children’s book becoming a certified #1 New York Times bestseller
The Bench was inspired by the relationship between Harry and Archie, Meghan said
Meghan explained that The Bench was inspired by the relationship between Prince Harry and Archie. She added that the book “started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born.”
According to a press release by Random House Children’s Books, The Bench “captures the special relationship between father and son, as seen through a mother’s eyes.”
The Bench is illustrated by the award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson. It shows a father with a ginger beard being welcomed back home by his son. Another illustration shows the father playing with his son while the mother watches.
Meghan did not write The Bench for children but for Harry, a reviewer claimed
News of the upcoming interview comes after The Bench, which hit the shelves on June 8, made it to the top of the New York Times bestseller list in the children’s picture books category.
Although the book is officially promoted as a children’s picture book, a reviewer has claimed it was not written for children but as a book of instructions about parenting for Harry.
Monsters & Critics reported that Daily Mail columnist Bel Mooney claimed that Meghan Markle’s book “was not written for children but to instruct Harry about parenting.”
The author described Meghan as a “bossy narrator” who lectures Harry about parenting and then watches him obey her instructions.
“The Bench is not for children at all, but for husband, Harry,” Mooney wrote.
Royal Family braces for more bombshells
Meanwhile, members of the Royal Family are reportedly bracing themselves for more bombshell allegations by Meghan following the report that she is giving another interview.
Meghan previously made explosive allegations against the Royal Family during a sit-down interview with Oprah in March.
She and Harry accused the Royals of neglect and failing to help when Meghan reported she was having suicidal thoughts.
They also accused the Royals of racism. Meghan claimed the Royals did not want Archie to be a prince because of his mixed race.
Harry later questioned Prince Charles’s parenting on his Apple TV+ docuseries, The Me You Can’t See.
He alleged that Charles made him and William suffer as children.More: Archie, Harry, Meghan Markle
