The much-anticipated edition of Vogue magazine, guest edited by the Duchess of Sussex, has gone on sale.
Meghan decided to dedicate the prestigious September edition of the British magazine to 15 influential women, including climate activist Greta Thunberg, and New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
Joining Thunberg and Ardern are actors Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek, Laverne Cox, Jameela Jamil, Gemma Chan and Yara Shahidi, as well as models Christy Turlington Burns, Adwoa Aboah and Adut Akech.
Boxer Ramla Ali, writer Sinead Burke, Royal Ballet dancer Francesca Hayward and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie complete the line-up, with each photographed individually.
Meghan said she wanted the magazine to focus on “values, causes and people making an impact in the world today”.
Under the title “Forces For Change”, she has been working on the project for the past seven months, throughout her pregnancy.
The front of the magazine is divided into 16 boxes, with the extra spot featuring a mirror designed to encourage and inspire readers to use their own platform to make a difference.
More high-profile women feature inside, including former US first lady Michelle Obama and Dr Jane Goodall, who are interviewed by Meghan and the Duke of Sussex respectively.
According to British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, Meghan is the first guest to edit the September issue, which is considered the most important of the year as it details upcoming autumn and winter fashion.
But while some praised the project, others are criticising it as out of touch with what is expected from her as a member of the Royal Family.
