A children's book written by the Duchess of Sussex more than two decades ago is getting a new lease of life after it was recently unearthed online.

In the book, Meghan describes having freckles as being an integral part of her identity even if some people think they are "strange".

A Face without Freckles... Is a Night Without Stars was written by Meghan when she was in high-school.

But Meghan dabbled with book writing when she would have been aged around 13 or 14, in the 8th grade at Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles.

According to the back of the book, it was penned by Meghan as a school project.

One of the pages features a drawing of a young girl with curly hair and freckles with the text: "Some people think freckles are strange, while I happen to disagree, because if I didn't have my freckles, then I would not truly be me!!!"

Girl dads: Famous fathers of daughters

  Girl dads: Famous fathers of daughters On April 6, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine shared a photo of himself and his wife Behati Prinsloo alongside their two daughters, Dusty Rose, 4, and Gio Grace, 3. The best part? They were all wearing matching dresses. Levine wore a pink tie-dyed halter maxi dress from Tiare Hawaii, matching his girls as they all hold hands and pose with their backs to the camera. Levine captioned the post, "Girls just wanna have fun." And that is just one of the many joys of being a father to girls! Many celebrities are, of course, quite protective, even secretive, when it comes to their families, and often celebrity kids are kept out of the spotlight. But in fact there are many celebrity fathers who join Adam Levine in the team of girl dads. Check out this gallery to find out who they are.

She is the first woman and the first African American to hold the top post of Librarian of Congress.

On the back of the book there is a school photo of Meghan and a description of her which says the young student "wishes to continue writing throughout high school".

It continues: "[Meghan] wants to take a moment to thank her 'mommy' and 'daddy' who gratefully spent their time and effort supporting her".

According to Hayden's tweet, Meghan submitted the work to the US Copyright Office in 1996.

She had applied for the phrase "a face without freckles is night without stars" to be copyrighted.

The phrase may have come from her now-estranged father Thomas Markle, who used to say it to her as a child, The Sun reported in 2019.

Meghan has previously spoken about her love for her freckles and had instructed her makeup artist to not cover them up on her wedding day.

Celebrities managed by their parents .
In recent months, there's been a lot of attention on Britney Spears and her father, Jamie, who as his daughter's conservator has controlled pretty much every aspect of her life since she was admitted to hospital in 2008. This may be an extreme case of parents taking the reins when it comes to their kids, but there are lots of other celebs who at some point have been managed by their parents. Just look at Kris Jenner, the world's most famous "momager." Check out this gallery to find out which stars have been managed by their parents.
