Meghan Markle is gearing up for a new interview on Sunday after her book topped the New York Times bestseller list.
The Duchess of Sussex, who recently gave birth to her baby daughter, will be speaking about her debut book The Bench, which follows the relationship of a father and son.
She recently celebrated her book making the bestseller list by reflecting on writing it as a “love letter” to Prince Harry and their young son.
Meghan will be speaking to presenter Samantha Balaban on The Weekend show at 8-10am ET, which is around 1-3pm BST.
Friend of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Omid Scobie, confirmed the news that Meghan would be interviewed on Sunday.
He wrote on Twitter : “Fresh off the heels of her first children’s book becoming a certified #1 New York Times bestseller, Duchess Meghan will be giving her only interview about #TheBench to @samanthabalaban at the renowned @NPRWeekend show, this Sunday between 8am-10am Eastern.”
Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the birth of their daughter and revealed she was named after the Queen’s nickname.
Meghan gave birth to their second child Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on Friday, June 4, at 11.40am at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara and weighed 7lbs 11oz.
The couple revealed the news on their Archewell website, saying: “On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.
“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.”
Her interview comes after Prince Harry took part in an Apple TV mental health series alongside Oprah Winfrey in which he lambasted the parenting skills of the Prince of Wales.
Prince Harry criticised his father for expecting his sons to endure the pressures of royal life, just as Charles has done, instead of protecting them.
Just like Archie was not entitled to be a prince nor an HRH when he was born in 2018, the Sussexes’ daughter is not permitted to be a princess nor an HRH due to rules set down more than 100 years ago by George V.
Meghan controversially claimed during her Oprah broadcast that Archie had his right to be a prince taken away from him because of his race.
In fact, he was too far removed from the crown because although he is a great-grandchild of a sovereign, he is not the “eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales” as George V’s rules required.
