The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex released “The Bench” on Tuesday. The price of the book is currently listed as $13.16 on Amazon for a hard copy, $6.95 for an audiobook (which she narrates) and $11.99 for the Kindle version. Markle said previously the book was inspired by a poem she wrote for Prince Harry on his first father’s day in 2019
On Wednesday, Markle and Harry’s charitable organization Archewell announced the former American actress received support from her publisher to donate the 2,000 free copies “to libraries, community centers, schools and nonprofit programs across the country.” It appears the donations will only take place in America and not Harry’s native United Kingdom, despite the book being available worldwide.
Archewell says the donations will help contribute to its overall goal of “nourishment through learning and connection.” The announcement, which commends the duchess’ Save With Stories initiative from 2020, also stresses the free copies will be distributed at a unique time for kids given the coronavirus pandemic posed “unprecedented challenges for kids” over the last year.
