Meghan and Harry’s daughter Lilibet featured in new children’s book, The Bench


The Duchess of Sussex has released a children’s book based on her husband and son’s bond.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor has made her public debut in the new children’s book by her mother, Meghan Markle.

The baby, named Lili, is featured in one of Markle’s illustrations in her new book, “The Bench,” out now.

The book is dedicated to “the man and the boy who make my heart go pump-pump,” a sweet tribute to Prince Harry and his two-year-old son Archie.

In one of Christian Robinson’s drawings, a  ginger-haired father helps a small boy feed chickens, while a dark-haired lady stands in a garden holding a baby, widely presumed to be Meghan and her newborn daughter.

The Duke and Duchess’ new life in Montecito, California inspired the scene.

The graphic also includes two dogs, in addition to the chickens that surfaced during the broadcast of the couple’s explosive encounter with Oprah Winfrey in March.

Markle announced the book last month, which is now available for pre-sale on Amazon for $13.16, down from $18.99.

The audiobook is narrated by the Duchess.

Markle has sent copies of Random House Children’s Books’ “The Bench,” to her Hollywood pals, with LA-based photographer Gray Malin promoting the book to his 35,400 Instagram followers on Friday, posting a clip of him opening the first page to show an unseen artwork of Harry and Archie.

Elsewhere, a black parent falls asleep on a seat holding his son close later in the book. In one hand, the youngster holds a toy giraffe, while in the other, he holds his father’s hand.

“From here you will rest, see the growth of our boy,” the text reads.

On another page, a red-headed soldier, like Harry, wearing an American-style army cap, is seen holding his infant kid aloft in one previously released artwork, as a lady watches from a window, crying.

“This is your bench, Where life begins, For you and our son our baby, our kin.” the lines read. Harry served in Afghanistan with the Blues and Royals.

After being the driving force behind Together, a cookbook showcasing recipes from Grenfell Tower women, this is the second book the Duchess has worked on.

It’s unclear how much Markle was paid in advance for the book or whether any of the earnings would go to charity, but branding experts estimate she might have gotten over $700,000 in a bidding war.
