The Duchess of Sussex is the guest editor on the September issue of British Vogue – and its cover features 15 ‘women she admires’.
The Duchess becomes the first royal to guest-edit the fashion bible, bringing together 15 ‘trailblazers’ and ‘changemakers’ for a special ‘Forces for Change’ issue.
The line-up of women she admires includes celebrities, politicians and activists known for championing issues such as diversity, body positivity, transgender rights and climate change.
Meghan’s edition, includes actress Jane Fonda, 81, and climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg, 16 among other famous faces.
The Duchess does not feature on the cover as she believed it would be a ‘boastful’ thing for her to do, according to the magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.
It represents one of the most radical moves in Vogue’s 100-year history, with the magazine saying it considers the new September issue to be its most important edition of the year.
The duchess, a former actress and avowed feminist, had initially been asked to appear on the cover herself. But Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful said Meghan refused as she thought it would appear too ‘boastful’.
