Meghan Markle's children's book The Bench has made the New York Times Bestseller list.

The book illustrated by Christian Robinson - released on 8 June - is inspired by Prince Harry and Archie's relationship.

"The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father's Day, the month after Archie was born. That poem became this story," Meghan said in a statement about the book.
