Duchess of Sussex 'set to write children’s book'

The Duchess of Sussex could be set to write a children's book, it has been reported.

Meghan, 37, is keen to pen a story based on her love of animals, according to The Sun.

The newspaper quotes a royal insider as saying: "Meghan's going to be a published author and is very excited about it.

"Plans are in the very early stages and won't be formally announced for some time. But she is passionate about the idea of a work of fiction for children."

Meghan, who will celebrate her 38th birthday on Sunday, would be the latest member of the royal family to have a children's story on the book shelves.
