Meghan Markle looked stunning in red as she arrived at a New York City school to read her own children's picture book The Bench.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have left two year old Archie and three month old daughter Lilibet at home in Montecito, attended P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson in Harlem on Friday 24 September to promote early literacy.

Meghan, 40, is expected to read her children's book, The Bench, to children aged seven and eight in second grade and will be shown a mural by pupils in fourth and fifth grade on day two of their three-day tour.

Mum-of-two Meghan looked effortlessly chic in the dark red ensemble which featured flared trousers that draped beautifully over her court shoes in the same hue.

Meanwhile the former Suits actress wore her brunette locks in loose waves and added a hint of eyeliner to complete her stunning look.

The Duchess of Sussex announced the book earlier this year and said it initially started out as a poem before being turned into a book.

She explained at the time: "The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father's Day, the month after Archie was born. That poem became this story."

"My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with me."

The 34-page book gives readers an insight into the couple's new family life in the US with illustrations by Christian Robinson of the father and son spotted feeding the chickens similar to her family home in LA.
