Meghan Markle reportedly set to write children's book on a topic close to her heart

Baby Archie will love this!

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex

It's been a whirlwind few years for Meghan Markle, as she's stepped into the role of royal Duchess after her career as an actress.

And now it looks as though she's set to embark on a brand new career path, as reports suggest that she's set to become a published author, penning a children's book.

A royal insider told The Sun, “Meghan is going to become a published author and is very excited about it.

“The plans are in the very early stages and won’t be formally announced for some time."

The source continued, "But she’s very excited about the possibility and is passionate about the idea of a work of fiction for children."

It seems the book may be centred around a topic very close to her heart too - her rescue dogs. The Duchess of Sussex has two dogs, one she got with Prince Harry, whose name and breed is unknown, and a rescue dog she brought over from Canada with her, Bogart.

The source said, “She loves animals and her rescue dogs so it’s very likely they will be incorporated into the story."

We're sure baby Archie would love to hear the stories written by his mum!

Meghan Markle certainly has a passion for dogs and rescue animals, having becoming royal patron of the Mayhew, an animal welfare charity in London, last year.

She's long been a keen writer too, having run a lifestyle blog, The Tig, before meeting Prince Harry. However, the site was shut down before her marriage.

The palace hasn't yet confirmed any of the rumours on Meghan's book as yet, so only time will tell if it happens...

But if it does go ahead, the Duchess wouldn't be the first royal to pen a novel. Sarah, the Duchess of York, has written multiple children's books over her career, and Prince Charles also wrote a children's book back in 1980, called The Old Man of Lochnagar.
