Meghan Markle has long maintained her status as a style influencer. From the shoes she wears to the clothes and jewelry she dons, her effortlessly stylish looks have inspired fans across the globe and catapulted numerous brands into the spotlight, even prompting the creation of the term the Meghan Markle Effect. And now, the Duchess of Sussex just might be poised to add a whole new category to her resume: furniture influencer.

The possibility comes from a confluence of recent Meghan news. First, early this month, it was announced that the duchess will be coming out with a children's book on June 8th inspired by Prince Harry and Archie. The book's title? The Bench. Then Meghan appeared in a virtual speech for the Vax Live event, in which eagle-eyed fans noticed a similarity between the duchess's choice of seating and the titular bench as it appears on the cover for her upcoming book, leading some to speculate that it might indeed be the inspiration for her first foray into children's literature.

While the Sussex's garden bench hasn't yet been officially identified, that hasn't stopped those wanting to infuse their outdoor areas with a touch of Markle Sparkle from seeking out similar options for their own homes.

This inexpensive option, for example, has a slatted back with an arched top, similar to the one Meghan favors. It also happens to come from Christopher Knight Home, the same brand that made the chairs that featured so heavily in Meghan and Harry's famous interview with Oprah earlier this year.

Likewise, this Frontgate bench has a similar feel, and is made from kiln-dried teak to stand up to seasons of weather wear-and-tear.
