Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's debut children's book, The Bench, features a nod to her newborn daughter.

The actress-turned-royal and her husband Prince Harry welcomed Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on 4 June, with the couple calling the new arrival "more than we could have ever imagined".

Just days after giving birth, Meghan released her first-ever book on Tuesday, and in one of the illustrations by California-based artist Christian Robinson, the tot - known as Lili - is shown being cradled in her mother's arms.

According to Meghan, she was inspired by a poem she wrote for her husband on Father's Day 2019, a month after their son Archie was born, with the verse exploring the "special bond between father and son" as "seen through a mother's eyes".

The book features an illustration of Harry and Archie, sitting on a bench feeding the family's rescue chickens, which are housed at their mansion in Montecito, California.

And she has dedicated the publication to father and son, writing in the inscription: "For the man and the boy who make my heart go pump-pump."

The couple previously thanked fans for their support and well wishes after the baby's arrival.

In a statement posted on their Archewell website, they wrote: "She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we've felt from across the globe. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family."
