The Duchess of Sussex has guest edited British Vogue’s September issue, focusing on women who “break barriers”.

The cover features 15 women, including teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg and New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern.

Meghan 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.

The edition, entitled Forces For Change, highlights “trailblazing change makers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers”, Buckingham Palace said.

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.

“I hope readers feel as inspired as I do, by the forces for change they’ll find within these pages.”

The issue includes a conversation between Meghan and former US First Lady Michelle Obama.

The cover features actors Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek Pinault, Laverne Cox, Jameela Jamil, Yara Shahidi and Gemma Chan, models Christy Turlington Burns, Adwoa Aboah and Adut Akech.

Also among the 15 stars on the front are Boxer Ramla Ali, diversity advocate Sinead Burke, Royal Ballet principal dancer Francesca Hayward, and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

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.

‘Wonderful surprise’

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.

“To have the country’s most influential beacon of change guest edit British Vogue at this time has been an honour, a pleasure and a wonderful surprise,” he said.

“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.

“From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project.

“She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires.”

In 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge featured on the front of Vogue’s centenary issue.
