Meghan Markle latest news: Duchess’ touching gesture for Father’s Day

The star is celebrating the release of her book The Bench

In latest Meghan Markle news, the Duchess has marked Father’s Day with a sweet gesture.

The Duchess of Sussex sadly doesn’t have a close relationship with her father, Thomas Markle.

The pair have been locked in a family feud for years.

However, that hasn’t stopped Meghan from marking the special occasion in a different way.

Author Matt Haig took to social media to reveal to fans that Meghan had sent him a copy of her new children’s book, The Bench.

Alongside the gift, he showed off a handwritten note from the Duchess.

“Dear Matt, Happy Father’s Day! With love and respect from our family to yours… As ever, Meghan,” she wrote.

“With compliments of the office of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” added a second, less personal note.

Ahead of its release, Meghan opened up about the meaning behind her children’s book.

She said: “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.”

Meanwhile, her estranged father Thomas recently reached out to his daughter.
