You’ve probably heard by now that Meghan Markle is a bestselling author. Shortly after publishing her children’s book, The Bench, the story has become a #1 New York Times Bestseller.
Last week, the duke and duchess revealed the news on their Archewell website, writing, “Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex’s debut children’s book, The Bench, is #1 on The New York Times Bestseller list for children’s picture books after being released just last week. Congratulations to everyone involved in the project.”
However, we just learned that this wasn’t the 39-year-old’s first-ever shot at writing a book. In fact, back in eighth grade, Markle wrote a sweet story about embracing her freckles in a piece called A Face without Freckles... Is a Night Without Stars. So, where is the book now? It apparently resides in the Library of Congress, according to librarian Carla Hayden.
