Speaking about the reasons why she wrote the book, Meghan said: "I often find, and especially in this past year, I think so many of us realised how much happens in the quiet."The Duchess continued: "In the story I am observing this love between my husband and our son and imagining what it would be as they have more shared moments as our son gets older.
"From scraping a knee to having a heart broken, whatever it is they always have this moment to reset at this bench and have this moment to bond."It was definitely moments like that, watching them from out of the window and watching [my husband] just, you know, rock him to sleep or carry him or, you know ... those lived experiences, from my observation, are the things that I infused in this poem." headtopics.com
Meghan added: "There are lots of little small moments like that that were personal memories or anecdotes that I wanted infused in there."This included being inspired by Princess Diana as she said that she has included her favourite flower, as well as her beloved rescue chickens.

Meghan has hopes that the story will touch many around the world. She added: The book is an intimate, personal insight into her family life which she hopes will transcend other families across the globe."It's a love story.
