Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has co-edited the September issue of British Vogue.
This development took place, while she was preparing for the birth of her son Archie.
According to reports Meghan is the first-ever guest editor of the British edition of what’s considered the fashion bible’s most important issue.
Buckingham Palace announced on Sunday that the duchess, who is still on maternity leave after giving birth to her first child in May, used her rare opportunity to focus on women who break barriers. The magazine issue is entitled, “Forces for Change.”
“To have the country’s most influential beacon of change guest edit British Vogue at this time has been an honour, a pleasure and a wonderful surprise,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, said of the historic collaboration.
“As you will see from her selections throughout this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether they concern female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege.”
The edition features 15 women who are “each driving impact and raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice and open mindedness.” The duchess decided that the 16th spot on the magazine’s cover will feature a mirror, so that the reader can be included to “encourage them to use their own platforms to effect change.”
