Duchess Meghan on her book: The story I wrote could really be your story

The Duchess said that “growing up, I remember so much how it felt to not see yourself represented,” in an interview with National Public Radio’s (NPR) Samantha Balaban.”So any child or any family hopefully can open this book and see themselves in it, whether that means glasses or freckled or a different body shape or…

Duchess Meghan on her book: The story I wrote could really be your story

The Duchess said that “growing up, I remember so much how it felt to not see yourself represented,” in an interview with National Public Radio’s (NPR) Samantha Balaban.”So any child or any family hopefully can open this book and see themselves in it, whether that means glasses or freckled or a different body shape or a different ethnicity or religion,” Meghan said.While the book opens and ends with depictions of Meghan’s family, there is a diverse range of fathers and sons depicted throughout the story.”This story that I wrote for my husband and son could really be your story also,” she told the US radio network’s children’s book series, “Picture This.”Earlier this year Meghan and her husband Prince Harry sparked a heated conversation about racism, the British tabloid press and the royal family following their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.Quiet moments Meghan’s book was published last month. It is inspired by Prince Harry and their son Archie Harrison, and is about relationships between fathers and sons, depicted in quiet moments spent on benches.Meghan said that “especially in this past year,” against the backdrop of a global pandemic, that “so many of us realized how much happens in the quiet.””So, in this story, I’m observing this love between my husband and our son and imagining what it will be as they have more shared moments as our son gets older,” she said.”From scraping a knee to having a heart broken, whatever it is that they always reset at this bench and have this moment to bond,” Meghan added.The book emerged from a poem and bench that Meghan gave Harry for his first Father’s Day. The interview, to be aired Sunday, marks the couple’s second Father’s Day. It was recorded before the birth of their second child, Lilibet Diana, who was born earlier this month.Their daughter was named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her late grandmother.Meghan said award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson included small details in the book that her son Archie would pick up on, and subtle nods to the late Princess Diana.”I think you can find sweet little moments that we’ve tucked in there — from my favorite flower, even my husband’s mom’s favorite flower, forget-me-nots,” said Meghan.”We wanted to make sure those were included in there. There’s a lot of, a lot of special detail and love that went into this book,” she added.Harry and Meghan were married in a lavish wedding at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, England, three years ago.They stepped back from their roles as senior working royals last year, relinquishing their HRH titles, and now live in Santa Barbara, California.

Medecins Sans Frontieres says Mediterranean rescue mission blocked after ship seizure in Italy

In a press release Sunday, the organization called for the “swift release” of its search and rescue vessel “Geo Barents,” which was detained by authorities on administrative grounds in the port of Augusta, Sicily, on July 2.According to the Italian Coast Guard, the seizure was the result of a “periodic inspection” required for foreign ships docking in Italian ports, which “highlighted various technical irregularities that could compromise the safety of the crew and of the people on board.”The ship did not have a sufficient amount of life saving equipment on board, such as rafts and life belts, the Coast Guard statement said. During a 14-hour inspection of the vessel, officials found 22 issues overall — 10 of which were grounds for the ship to be detained, it also said.MSF has said that it is “ready to make all the necessary adjustments.” However, MSF’s search and rescue representative, Duccio Staderini, also claimed that inspections of NGO vessels in Italian ports are “long and thorough, aiming at finding irregularities in order to prevent the ship from returning to sea to save lives.”We are faced with a crushing reality: while humanitarian NGO vessels are detained, lives continue to be needlessly lost in the Mediterranean,” he added.Italy has borne the brunt of migrants landing on European shores, with over 10,400 arrivals in the country in 2021, the UNHCR added.A UN report in May found the European Union was partly to blame for deaths of migrants crossing the Mediterranean due to unanswered distress calls, obstruction of humanitarian rescue efforts, and so-called “pushbacks” to Libya.So far this year, at least 500 people are known to have died trying to make the dangerous sea crossing along the central Mediterranean route, the UN Refugee Agency said in May. That’s a steep rise on the same period last year, where there were 150 recorded deaths — an increase of 200%.Reporting contributed by Livia Borghese and Caitlin Hu.
