The palace confirms Duchess Meghan's big new role
It has been confirmed by the palace that the Duchess of Sussex is the guest editor for British Vogue’s famed September issue.
While we won’t be seeing the royal grace the cover herself, she is choosing to include a number of other big names in September’s Forces of Change edition.
Some of the faces that will be gracing the cover include New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, boxer Ramla Ali and actress Gemma Chan.View this post on Instagram
The collection will feature 15 women who are “changemakers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers”.
The palace also revealed a candid conversation with former US First Lady, Michelle Obama, and an interview between Prince Harry and ethologist and primatologist Dr Jane Goodall will be included.
"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," the Duchess said in a heartfelt statement.View this post on Instagram
"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."
The magazine’s cover displays 15 women personally chosen by the Duchess of Sussex, along with a mysterious blank space which was revealed to be a mirror “so that when you hold the issue in your hands, you see yourself as part of this collective".
The issue will be available online from this Friday, August 2.
