Though Meghan Markle
and Prince Harry do not currently have or use social media accounts, the Duchess of Sussex
spoke about her husband and their son, Archie
, in a Father's Day segment for NPR.
Meghan gave her first and only interview
to NPR about her new children's book
, "The Bench," which was inspired by a Father's Day gift and poem she gave to the Duke before his first time celebrating the holiday
, and was pre-taped before the birth of the couple's daughter, Lili
“As most of us do, you think, what am I going to get them as a gift?” Meghan said for Weekend Edition’s children’s book series. “And I thought I just wanted something sentimental and a place for him to have as a bit of a home base with our son.”
The duchess eventually gave Harry a bench with the inscription, "This is your bench/Where life will begin/For you and our son/Our baby, our kin."
