Meghan Markle made an official debut as editor of British vogue which focuses on women who “break barriers”. However, the British vogue cover hasn’t quite gotten the reactions suited for a queen.

The British vogue cover features 15 women, including Nigeria’s very own Chimamanda Adichie

The Cover features other influential women who include:

The Duchess of Sussex chose not to put herself on the cover, the magazine’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful said, as she felt it would be a “boastful thing to do”.The duchess said she hoped people would be as inspired as she was by the women featured in the magazine.

Meghan, who gave birth to her first child in May, said she had spent the last seven months working on the project “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,” she said.

The front of the magazine is divided into 16 boxes and the one unfilled space is taken by a mirror, which aims to encourage the reader to use their own platforms to force change.

Enninful, the editor-in-chief, said Meghan was the first person to guest edit the September issue – traditionally considered the most important issue of the year.

As you will see from her selections throughout this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether they concern female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege.

Nonetheless, a number of people have found a way to criticize the duchess’s choice of women on the cover some referring to as a “bit bias” and “Leftist”.
