Meghan Markle announced that she was releasing a new book titled The Bench, which highlights the special bond between fathers and sons. The Duchess of Sussex is said to have been inspired by Prince Harry’s relationship with their son Archie, who turns two tomorrow.

Today co-host Allison Langston, 41, appeared to take a swipe at Meghan, 39, following the news of her latest move.

While discussing the Duchess of Sussex’s book, the Australian presenter questioned the words she read out via the teleprompter.

It comes after Meghan was compared to famous children authors JK Rowling and Roald Dahl.

As she read out her lines, the mother-of-two took the opportunity to go off-script as she claimed the comparison was a “stretch”.

“Meghan Markle is joining the ranks of Roald Dahl and JK Rowling – oh, a stretch – by writing her first children’s book about the bond between fathers and sons,’ Allison remarked.

Colleague and US correspondent Amelia Adams provided further details about the project.

Allison later commented: “Can we get the whole book, please?

“There is also going to be an audiobook I believe.”

Amelia said: “Yeah, can you imagine anything better?

“I mean, pop it on in the car, pop it on at home when you’re cooking dinner. Meghan’s dulcet tones… reading poetry.”

The Today hosts discussed the fact the book had started out as a poem Meghan had written for her husband Prince Harry on Father’s Day.

Allison’s co-anchor Karl Stefanovic burst into laughter and expressed his disbelief that the California-based Sussexes would write poetry for each other in their spare time.

“They actually write poetry together!” Karl exclaimed.

Their comments come after Meghan announced the release of her new book The Bench, which is set to be released next month.

In a statement, the Duchess 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.”

She added: “My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

The book’s publisher said that book aimed to evoke “a deep sense of warmth, connection, and compassion”.

Meghan, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child, and her husband stepped down from their royal duties last year.

Prince Harry recently returned to his family in the US following the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip last month.
