Though 2020 was a tumultuous year for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, she also found time to appreciate the smaller things in life. And watching her husband and their children together has been a source of joy for the duchess.
“I often find, and especially in this past year, I think so many of us realized how much happens in the quiet,” Meghan said to NPR in June 2021 in an interview about “The Bench,” her children’s book. “It was definitely moments like that, watching them from out of the window and watching [my husband] just, you know, rock him to sleep or carry him or, you know … those lived experiences, from my observation, are the things that I infused in this poem.”
Sometimes, those seemingly insignificant moments, like sitting together on a park bench, can be the most memorable ones, for parents and children alike. During Meghan and Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry shared how much he loved being able to have Archie ride on the back of his bike in California (via Express). And being able to do those simple things together has meant the world to Meghan and Harry as they raise their children.
