Meghan Markle has been part of the Royal Family since she married Prince Harry, 34, on 19 May 2018. Although she often appears out in her role as a full-time working royal, she has managed to keep most of life private. However, opening up in the editor’s letter of the September issue of British Vogue, the Duchess gave details of her life. Fans were quick to share their praise for the royal, who revealed she had been working through her maternity.
The Duchess of Sussex has been keeping a low-profile since the months before her son, Archie Harrison, two months, was born.
Many people assumed she was taking maternity leave to enjoy life as a first time mum, but the royal has in fact been working on something close to her heart.
Speaking in the editor’s letter for the September issue of Vogue, Meghan revealed she began helping to put the issue together as early as January when she first met Vogue editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful.
She wrote: “What evolved over the next hour was a promising pow wow of two like-minded thinkers, who have much in common, including our love of writing”.
The Duchess revealed she was working on a Forces For Change campaign and she has called for people to “shine a light” in the months since becoming a mum.
Meghan wrote: “Over a steaming cup of mint tea, we teased through how one can shine a light in a world filled with seemingly daily darkness. Lofty? Of course. Worth it? Without question.”
She opened up about a few details of her own life, including detailing her drinking mint tea and sitting at home with her dogs, when she received a message finding out she was going to be guest editor.
“Sitting on my sofa at home, two dogs nestled across me, I quietly celebrated when the words appeared on my screen,” she wrote.
Royal fans were quick to praise Meghan for her work on this issue and took to Twitter to express how they felt.
One fan said: “Meghan Markle is a boss, this looks like a great piece and very inspiring.”
Another wrote: “Thank you so much Meghan Markle, HRH Duchess of Sussex, for recognizing all people as collective & individual forces of change on the cover of @BritishVogue via the inclusion of a mirror! So creative, significant & inspiring!”
A third added: “This is totally inspiring and I’ll defo be buying a copy!!”
The Duchess has tried to include different faces of fashion in the article, however it was criticised for leaving some people out.
Some criticised the Duchess for the lack of Indian faces on the cover of the magazine cover, which aims to show a diverse group of women.
