Never seen before video footage of Duchess Meghan emerges

Never seen before video footage of Duchess Meghan emerges

It may have been only a few seconds the camera graced the Duchess of Sussex’s face, but it sure was memorable for royal fans.

In a short video to launch UK Vogue’s September issue, the Duchess – who was reportedly around five months pregnant with baby Archie at the time the clip was shot – is shown working alongside the magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.

With her baby bump on show to the world, the 37-year-old described working with the Vogue team as “rewarding.”

“These last seven months have been a rewarding process, curating and collaborating with Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief, to take the year’s most read fashion issue and steer its focus to the values, causes and people making impact in the world today,” she said in a statement.

The @SussexRoyal Instagram account said of the partnership: “Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex is the first Guest Editor for British Vogue’s September Issue and for the last seven months has worked to create an issue of inclusivity and inspiration, focusing on what connects us rather than what divides us.”

“Through this lens I hope you’ll feel the strength of the collective in the diverse selection of women chosen for the cover as well as the team of support I called upon within the issue to help bring this to light.

“I hope readers feel as inspired as I do, by the 'Forces for Change' they’ll find within these pages.”

Duchess Meghan’s two brief appearances in the short film was purposeful and aimed to keep the attention away from herself and on the 15 women selected as “Forces for Change" for the empowering September issue of UK Vogue.
