Meghan Markle’s adding a new entry to her resume right after actress, humanitarian, and entrepreneur: she’s a newly published children’s book author! The Duchess of Sussex just announced her debut illustrated kids’ book called The Bench, a lovely story about a mother watching the bond between her son and his father (yes, it’s based on Prince Harry and Archie).
But unfortunately online trolls wasted zero time accusing Meghan of copying the concept of her book from The Boy and The Bench by Corrinne Averiss. Which, nope. Nopppeeee. All it takes is a brief glance to realize these two books are literally nothing alike, and the only thing they have in common is the existence of a literal bench.
The trolling and rude comments are so out of hand, however, that Corrinne Averiss hopped onto Twitter to make it clear that she doesn’t think the Duchess of Sussex copied her book’s concept in any way, shape, or form, writing “Reading the description and published excerpt of the Duchess’s new book, this is not the same story or the same theme as The Boy on the Bench. I don’t see any similarities.”
