Meghan Markle revealed the touching tribute to Princess Diana in her debut children’s book.

The Bench, which was released earlier this month, was based on a poem Meghan wrote for her husband Prince Harry on his first Father’s Day shortly after the birth of their son Archie.

Now in her first interview since she sat down with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan unveiled she shares a favourite flower with Diana.

‘I think you can find sweet little moments that we hid in there — of my favourite flower, even my husband’s mom’s favorite flower, forget-me-nots,’ she said to NPR Weekend’s Samantha Balaban.

‘We wanted to make sure those were included in there. There are many, many special details and love that went into this book.’

The Duchess of Sussex said her eldest Archie is a ‘voracious’ reader and that he loves her book.

‘I knew our son would notice all of those elements, and he loves the book, which is great because he has a voracious appetite for books and constantly when we read him a book he goes “again, again, again”. But now the fact he loves The Bench and we can say “Mommy wrote this for you” feels amazing.’

She also said that the picture book was a ‘love story’ about being with Prince Harry.

‘It’s really just about growing with someone and having this deep connection and this trust so that, be at good times or bad, you know that you had this person. I really hope that people can see this as a love story that transcends the story of my family.’

Although the book was panned by some critics, The Bench topped The New York Times’ best sellers list.
