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.

ROYAL EXPERT GOES IN ON HARRY “EVERY TIME YOU SLAG OFF THE FIRM YOU’RE STABBING THE QUEEN IN THE BACK”
Royal expert, Ingrid Seward, has lashed out at Harry following the Royals rough patch.
“Prince Harry is a former military man. He understands about Queen and Country and has sworn allegiance to his sovereign.
“Why then does he continue to stab the institution the Queen represents in the back?
“He does not appear to grasp that the Queen and the firm are basically the same thing.
“If he slates the institution his grandmother represents and has stood for almost 70 years of her life, he is offending her too.”
PRINCE HARRY AND DUCHESS ORDERED TO SHUT UP BY PIERS MORGAN BECAUSE ‘PEOPLE ARE SICK OF YOU’
Piers Morgan has ordered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to stop “whining” because people are sick of them.
He went on to suggest Harry and Meghan should “give up their titles, stop whining 24/7, and try to take a leaf out of the book of the Queen – whose nickname, Lilibet, they’ve hijacked for their daughter.
“Take a little tip from the queen: less is more,” he went on. “If you want to be a Royal, a member of the Royal Family, less is more.
“We’re hearing too much of your yapping, too much of your whining. It’s time to pipe down.”
