The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a video last year showing Archie reading a book with his mother on the occasion of his first birthday, but it remains to be seen if fans will get a glimpse of the toddler.

Harry and Meghan have kept Archie out of the spotlight and public photos in recent months, choosing to hide his face in their illustrated Christmas card and leave him out of the pregnancy announcement.

It comes just days after Meghan announced details of her first children’s book, The Bench, which explores the ‘special bond between father and son’ as being ‘seen through the eyes of a mother’.

It is illustrated by best-selling California artist Christian Robinson, who called it a “ celebration of the father-son relationship. ”

A publicity release said Meghan, who chose to use her title on the cover of the book, wanted the story to be told through an “ inclusive lens ” and feature a “ diverse group of father and sons. ”

In one illustration, a red-haired soldier wearing an American-style army cap is seen holding his young son in the air while a woman watched it cry from a window. This is a likely reference to her and Harry, who served with the Blues and Royals in Afghanistan. The words were, “This is your bank, where life will begin, for you and our son our baby, our relatives.”

In another, a bird’s-eye view of a father and son resting together on a park bench.

Royal fans were quick to point out similarities between the two storybooks, with one person saying, ‘This was stolen from Corinne Averiss – The Boy on the Bench, check it out on Amazon.

‘The graphics and colors are almost identical. It is about as authentic as a three dollar bill. ‘

Another wrote, “Before you run and waste money on Harry’s wife’s book, read The Boy on the Bench by Corrinne Averiss and Gabriel Alborozo. The original.’

Meghan, who bore the pseudonym ‘Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex’, announced in a statement yesterday: ‘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 depicting the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this performance was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely together to portray this special bond through an inclusive lens.

“I hope The Bench resonates as well with every family, regardless of makeup, as it does with mine.”

Sources close to the Duchess have revealed that she has long been striving to write a children’s book and hopes to write more in the future.

They told Vanity Fair that the royal ‘loves to write’ and is ‘very good at it’.
