The Duchess of Sussex celebrated a personal victory this week when her debut book topped the New York Times bestseller list. The mother of two will be interviewed by Samantha Blaban on NPR’s Weekend Show, an American radio show. The interview will air between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Eastern Time, or between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the UK.
The timing of the interview – Father’s Day – is a sweet nod from Meghan to her husband Prince Harry. It also falls on the eve of Prince William’s 39th birthday.
Earlier this year, she revealed she felt inspired to write her first book about a little boy’s bond with his father after writing a poem for the Duke on Father’s Day.
This weekend, the Queen’s sixth grandson to the throne will celebrate his first Father’s Day as a father of two.
Omid Scobie, co-author of Finding Freedom, said Meghan’s next cat will be the “only interview on The Bench” she gives.
Royal fans have hailed the “beautiful news” that Meghan, 39, is resurfacing after weeks of avoiding the limelight.

A second celebrated the book’s success a week after it hit the shelves, saying: “Let’s go! Congratulations Duchess Meghan.”
This week, The Bench tops the New York Times bestseller list for children’s picture books.
The story comes to life on the pages with beautiful illustrations created by American artist Christian Robinson.

She also provided insight into her motivations for writing the story, which has proven popular with readers.
She said she hoped to explore a “soft” side of masculinity, often overlooked by others, in her story.
In a message posted to Archewell’s website, the Duchess said: “While this poem began as a love letter to my husband and son, I am encouraged to see that its universal themes of love , representation and inclusion resonate in communities around the world.
“In many ways, the pursuit of a more compassionate and just world begins with these core values.

Likewise, to portray another facet of masculinity – one based on connection, emotion and gentleness – is to model a world that so many would like to see for their sons and daughters.
The former royals also thanked fans for supporting their “special project”.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Harry, 36, and Meghan shared their first photo of baby Lilibet on a private WhatsApp group with other royals.
The two-week-old baby is eighth to the throne behind her father and two-year-old brother Archie.
Meghan and Harry’s timeline
The Sussexes have not publicly released a photo of their newborn baby.
Details of her birth have been kept under wraps and the couple waited two days to announce the arrival of their child.
Since leaving royal life, Meghan and Harry have signed multi-million dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify to make documentaries, children’s programs, reports and podcasts.
The announcement that Meghan would give an interview this weekend, while on maternity leave, comes after a royal author warned the couple could be pressured to produce more content for the companies they are with are in partnership.

Since announcing their deal with streaming giant Spotify last year, the former royals have produced just one podcast episode.
And amid reports that the couple plan to be off work for about five months, author and royal journalist Phil Dampier said that could leave Spotify bosses to roam the field while waiting for more content.
He told The Sun: “We’re told they have up to five months off and people who pay them big bucks will expect something in return.
“They seem to use a lot of ammunition very early on and come up with a lot in terms of deals and deals with a lot of companies.
“One can wonder if they have too much on their plate. “
