A royal expert has claimed that Meghan Markle is using her new book to show how "upset Prince Harry is after losing his military titles".
On Tuesday (May 4) Duchess of Sussex, along with publisher Random House Children's Books, announced that she would be releasing a book exploring the bond between a father and his son, from the perspective of the mother.
A number of illustrations were released in anticipation of the the book's publication in the summer and one particular drawing caught the eye of Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words.
In the illustration a soldier with ginger hair is holding a little boy excitedly in the air with a woman crying as she looks on at them through the window of the house.
Phil Dampier believes that the photo represents Harry's sadness at losing his military titles, particularly the Captain General of the Royal Marines.
Mr Dampier told The Sun : "Meghan is probably showing how much the Army meant to Harry and how upset he is to lose his military titles.
"For Harry, who put his life on the line and then founded the highly successful Invictus Games for injured servicemen and women, losing the titles was the bitterest part of ‘Megxit.’"
Mr Dampier also believes that it is Meghan's way of "reminding readers" that Prince Harry fought on the frontline.
In the picture it reads, "Looking out at my love and our beautiful boy" and "And here in the window i'll have tears of great joy."
In a statement about the book Meghan wrote: "The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father's Day, the month after Archie was born
"That poem became this story. My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”
Much has been made of the fact that Meghan uses the royal title of Duchess of Sussex on the front of the book.
Prince Harry biographer Angela Levin said it was 'laughable' as she 'wanted to cut ties' with the royal family.
"Because they wanted to get away from the Royal Family, they hated the Royal Family – they felt trapped.
"They didn't like it, they wanted freedom and they’ve got freedom. You can’t have everything you want like that."
Angela went on to say that "you don't use your royal position to make commercial gain" and not many people "sign a book with their titles".
