Lots of children’s books are good reads — and then there are some that are royally good reads. As in, beloved by actual royals.
The latest example: the classic children’s book that Meghan Markle, the newly minted (and newly expecting) Duchess of Sussex, can’t wait to introduce to her future child.
During a 2016 interview, which Bustle recently unearthed, Markle (who was starring in Suits at the time) was asked, “What children’s book can you not wait to share with your kids?” Her answer: The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein.
It’s fitting that Markle, who was devoted to humanitarian work well before joining the royal family, would love the 1964 children’s picture book which details the friendship between a boy and a tree and examines what it means to give and take in the world.
