Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess’ book The Bench FLOPS in 1st week failing to make UK top 50


MEGHAN Markle’s new book failed to break into the UK Top 50 in its first week of release in a blow to the Duchess’s writing career.

The Bench sold just 3,212 copies in its first week of publication and has an average rating of four stars, The Mirror reports.

Despite not gaining a place on the Top 50, The Bench did reach the top of the charts for the best selling picture book – but sales are still expected to rise.

Although the book may have had slow sales, it is expected to be huge hit for the book’s publishers Penguin Random House Children’s, as they have the rights that allow them to sell the English language copy globally.

Meanwhile, Piers Morgan ordered Harry and Meghan to stop “whining” because people are sick of them.

The outspoken TV personality again slammed the estranged Royals in an appearance on Sean Hannity‘s show on Fox News on Monday night – and suggested they “pipe down” about their personal or family struggles.
