A picture of the book has been posted online today ahead of its publication on June 8.

It shows a watercolour picture by award-winning artist Christian Robinson of a bench under a tree surrounded by birds.

The mum-to-be's pen name given as: "Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex".

She will also narrate an audiobook of the tale, which is published by Random House Children's Books.

Meghan 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.

"Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolour illustrations that capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life.

"This representation was particularly important to me and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens.

"My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the make up, as much as it does with me."

A press release that accompanies the announcement describes it as a story that “touchingly captures the evolving and expanding relationship between fathers and sons and reminds us of the many ways that love can take shape and be expressed in a modern family”.

Further photos from inside the book shows a boy being lifted into the air by a dad in military uniform as a woman weeps from the window.

The words accompanying the picture say: "Looking out at My Love and our beautiful boy.

"And here in the window I'll have tears of joy".

Another image features a dad with his baby boy dozing on a lounger outside.

The writing says: "From here you will rest, see the growth of our boy".
