Add “author” to Meghan Markle’s growing list of job titles that includes actress, royal, producer, wife and mom.

The former “Suits” star has penned her first children’s book, titled “The Bench,” to be released on June 8, Random House Children’s Books announced Tuesday.

“Inspired by her own husband and son, the Duchess of Sussex’s debut touchingly captures the evolving and expanding relationship between a diverse group of fathers and sons and reminds us of the many ways that love can take shape and be expressed in a modern family,” the press release reads.

“Evoking a deep sense of warmth, connection, and compassion, ‘The Bench’ gives readers a window into shared and enduring moments between a diverse group of fathers and sons — moments of peace and reflection, trust and belief, discovery and learning, and lasting comfort.”

The story will be told through a mother’s perspective, watching the special bond between a father and son.

Christian Robinson (”Last Stop on Market Street”) will illustrate the book in watercolor and Markle will narrate the audiobook.

“The Bridge” is based on a Father’s Day poem Markle wrote for her husband, Prince Harry, a month after son Archie was born.

“Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy, and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens,” Markle said in a statement.

“My hope is that ‘The Bench’ resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

Since ditching the royal family, Markle and Prince Harry have also signed an overall deal with Netflix to produce documentaries, feature films, scripted television shows and children’s series. Their first project, a docuseries about the Invictus Games, will follow the athletes from training to the rescheduled event in 2022.
