British Vogue gets a facelift
In a post shared on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s Instagram account, Meghan stated that guest editing the September issue of the magazine over the past seven months has been a “rewarding, educational and inspirational” experience.
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.”
Her royal highness expresses her gratitude
“To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created.
A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavour, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover. Thank you for saying ‘Yes!’ – and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.”

Markle is not the first royal women to be involved with British Vogue. Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, posed on the front cover of British Vogue in 2016 for the centenary issue of the magazine, under Alexandra Shulman.
