Meghan Markle has written an adorable book dedication to her husband Prince Harry and son Archie.

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.
