HOLD ALLLLL THE PRESSES! Meghan Markle Guest Edits British Vogue September 2019 Issue! The Royal family member worked with the likes of Peter Lindbergh, Grace Coddington; Michelle Obama, Jacinda Ardern and of course, Editor-In-Chief Edward Enninful. All in order to bring one of the biggest issues of the year for any magazine, including British Vogue, to life.
How did this all come about? The Duchess took a chance. After barely meeting Edward, yet still connecting with him over a number of issues. Meghan decided to take a risk and just ask if Enninful would consider as a guest editor.
She sent the text. Not a first…deleted it… but ultimately did. The result? A positive answer from Edward and a guest edition position which would begin in January of 2019. Proving that if you truly want something to happen; sometimes you have to just take a leap. A lesson for us all!
