Meghan Markle dealt another savage blow

Meghan Markle’s picture book The Bench is not being stocked in the Queen’s online store.

The Duchess of Sussex’s 169-word effort was not included in the online Royal Collection Shop ‘storytime’ section of children’s books.

They include Paddington at the Palace for £6.99 and Peppa Pig Meets The Queen for £4.99.

Meghan, 39, has claimed her book was inspired by a poem she wrote for Harry on his first Father’s Day and a “love story” of him and Archie, the Sun reports.

The picture book topped the New York Times Bestsellers List for children’s picture books but sold just 3,212 copies in the UK its first week since publication on June 8.

But plunged more than 95 places in a week to crash out of the Amazon top 100 books in the UK, with the firm slashing its price by nearly 40%.
