Meghan Markle is giving back with her first children's book.

The Duchess of Sussex released The Bench earlier this week. The sweet picture book details the special bond between father and son, which was inspired by her husband, Prince Harry's, connection with their 2-year-old son, Archie. The couple announced through their Archwell Foundation website that they would be donating 2,000 copies of the book to libraries, schools and many other family gathering places in the U.S.

"The Duchess and Archewell have received the support of the publisher of The Bench to distribute 2,000 copies at no cost to libraries, community centers, schools, and nonprofit programs across the country," the statement read.

Harry's long road to therapy

  Harry's long road to therapy Prince Harry has revealed how he first tried to seek help for his mental health in his 20s after years of turmoil before finally committing to therapy when he met wife Meghan Markle five years ago. The Duke of Sussex, 36, spoke candidly about his mental health 'journey' and treatment in candid interviews with Oprah Winfrey for five-part AppleTV+ series The Me You Can't See, which was released today. Harry explained the trauma of his mother's death when he was just 12 years old led him to use alcohol and drugs to 'mask' his emotions and to 'feel less like I was feeling'.

The website also added, "After more than a year of unprecedented challenges for schoolkids and families everywhere, The Duchess believes the path ahead must include a focus on well-being—and nourishing our communities through food, education, and emotional and mental health support."

Among the organizations receiving a copy include Assistance League® of Los Angeles, which the couple visited twice last year to spend time with the children at the organization’s Preschool Learning Center. Meghan and Harry are also working with nonprofit First Book to distribute the books around the country.

Illustrated by Christian Robinson, The Bench shows all different types of fathers spending time with their sons. One dad and his child wear matching pink tutu skirts and pose with their legs in the air, a father in the military tosses his excited son in the air as he returns home, and another smiling dad holds his baby boy while resting peacefully on a bench.
