Meghan Markle has written an adorable book dedication to her husband Prince Harry and son Archie.
- The Duchesses new children's picture book titled The Bench will be released next week
- She has dedicated the book to the man and boy who make her heart go 'pump-pump'
- In other royal news, Prince Charles invented this nickname for Meghan Markle when she joined the royal family
The book, which is released on Tuesday, has a gorgeous dedication to Prince Harry and son Archie, which says: "For the man and the boy who make my heart go pump-pump."
Meghan Markle's Suits role may have come to an end, but that doesn't mean the former actor can't continue to flex her creative muscles. Her first book, The Bench, focuses on a relationship between father and son, but from a mother's point of view.
Meghan initially said she got the idea from watching her husband, Prince Harry, and his relationship with their nearly 2-year-old son, Archie.

"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," the duchess explained.
The picture book features watercolor illustrations from Christian Robinson and is meant to feature a diverse cast of characters. Meghan aimed to tell her story through an "inclusive lens."
She said about the pictures: "Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolour illustrations that capture the warmth, joy, and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life.
The mother-of-one, who is due to give birth to a daughter soon, also said: "This representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens."
The book, which is priced at £12.99, will also be available in audio book, with the Duchess providing the narration.
She isn't the only royal to explore the publishing industry; Kate Middleton released a a coffee table book based off her photography project Hold Still, in which she aimed to capture life during lockdown.
