Behind-the-scenes video shows Meghan Markle at work guest-editing Vogue’s September issue – The Sun
MEGHAN Markle has guest-edited the September issue of British Vogue and a behind-scenes-video sees the Duchess hard at work.
Shared on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, the short clip introduces some of the 15 “inspirational” women hand-picked by Meg to feature on the cover.
Standing arm in arm with the editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, Meghan, 37, can be seen taking a hands on approach as she directs the shoot.
The Duchess of Sussex spent the past seven months working alongside the editor, and is the first to guest edit the September issue.
The videos caption on Harry and Meghan’s official Instagram account read: “For the last seven months (Meghan) has worked to create an issue of inclusivity and inspiration, focusing on what connects us rather than what divides us.”
The clip introduces the women selected to appear on the cover by Meghan, including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who first met Meghan last autumn during her official tour of New Zealand.
Speaking in the clip, PM Ardern says: “One change that I’ve noticed over the course of my career, is just how polarised the world is now.
“I do think there is a solution to that though, and that’s ultimately us coming back to the humanity that we all share."
Actress and transgender activist Lavern Cox is also introduced in the video.

And Salma Hayek says: “I think my force to change is me. That ability to spend time inside is the strongest force to change the world.”
Meghan decided not to appear on the cover of the magazine herself, with Enninful claiming she thought it would be "boastful."

One of the 16 photo slots on the front cover is that of a mirror, which encourages the reader to use their own platform for change.
The edition is entitled Forces For Change, and Buckingham Palace said this highlights "trailblazing change makers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers".
