During her interview with NPR, Meghan Makle revealed some of the special things that she included in “The Bench.” For example, one illustration is clearly meant to depict Prince Harry with Archie and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s two dogs, Pula, a black lab, and Guy, a beagle. There is another illustration that shows an emotional mother standing in the window watching her son as he is picked up by his father — a man wearing a military uniform.
“That page is true to form for him and his family,” Meghan says. “There are lots of little small moments like that that were personal memories or anecdotes that I wanted infused in there,” she explained. Given that, it’s not surprising to hear that there are more things drawn in the book that hold special meaning for Meghan and her family. The duchess wanted to include “her favorite flower, her mother-in-law’s favorite flower, and, of course, the family’s rescue chickens,” according to NPR. “I needed my girls in there,” Meghan said.
