Royal Expert Mocks Meghan Markle's Message to Fans about 'Another Side of Masculinity'
A royal expert, Angela Levin, ridiculed the Duchess of Sussex about her recent book and claimed it is irrelevant to today's society. Some royal fans weighed in on the matter.
Royal expert mocked Meghan Markle’s message to fans about “another side of masculinity.” Taking to social media, Angela Levin tweeted:
“Surely Meghan can’t believe she is the first person to discover that men have softer sides which ‘could help model a new world.’ Not more Bench stories about compassion surely.”
Levin quoted Markle's children's book titled, "The Bench," which is now a #1 "New York Times" bestseller list for children's picture books after its release last week.
On the Archewell website, the Hollywood alum shared the book started as a Father's Day poem for her beloved husband, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.

Although Levin picked on the Duchess, her Twitter post received mixed reactions. One other person took a jab at Markle, 39, by mentioning her estranged relationship with her father.
“No compassion for the father she is ghosting,” the individual retweeted to Levin’s post while others came to the Duchess of Sussex's rescue.
Well to be fair... Maybe all the men she ever had in her life didn't demonstrate a softer side to her... So emotion, kindness, compassion, care may alll be new to her...— Henry, Lord Haw-haw (@AmbridgeOrganic) June 18, 2021
Markle suggests that her book could be part of a blueprint for a new world. She said it depicts another side of masculinity – “one grounded in connection, emotion, and softness – is to model a world that so many would like to see for their sons and daughters alike.”
Although the book is No.1 on The New York Times bestseller list, it failed to hit the UK Official Top 50 chart after selling 3,212 copies in its first week.
I think she thinks before she and Harry led the way, people didn’t know they could love their kids. 🙄— Ginger Jones (@DDenouncement) June 17, 2021
Markle’s book features illustrations of fathers and sons, including her spouse and their firstborn, two-year-old Archie. Its release in the UK received mixed reviews, with some people praising it as "inspiring."
However, Levin claimed today’s children would not be interested in seeing a father and son relationship through a “mother’s eyes.”
Markle dedicated her book to Prince Harry and their son Archie: “For the man and the boy who make my heart go pump-pump,” it reads, written in her recognizable penmanship inspired by her previous work as a calligrapher.
Aside from the Sussexes, Kate Middleton and Prince William also chose to raise their three kids like any other parent and are rarely apart from them.
