A Twitter critic wrote “Before you run out and waste money on the book by Harry’s wife, read ‘The Boy on the Bench’ by Corrinne Averiss and Gabriel Alborozo … The original,”

While a lot of other Twitter users claimed that the Duchess of Sussex’ book, “The Bench,” didn’t only have a similar title to “The Boy On The Bench” by Averiss, it also has similar artwork from Christian Robinson.

Other people insisted that the storyline which Meghan Markle said started as a poem she wrote for her husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born also sounded too similar to be true.

Emma Kaye Wootton, an online critic suggested that the book was “Blatantly plagiarized” and that “The Bench” by Meghan should be “boycotted.”

“Reading the description and published excerpt of the Duchess’s new book, this is not the same story or the same theme as ‘The Boy on the Bench.’ I don’t see any similarities,” Averiss said on Twitter.
