The Duchess of Sussex has guest edited the September issue of British Vogue.
The edition, entitled ‘Forces for Change’ features a collection of trailblazing changemakers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers.
The issue, which will be available to buy next Friday, includes a candid conversation between Meghan and the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
Prince Harry also has a role in the publication as he conducts an interview with world-renowned ethologist and primatologist, Dr Jane Goodall.
Speaking of the news, the Duchess of Sussex said: “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.
“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.”
