Meghan Markle Reportedly Set to Be a Magazine Editor & Pose for 'New Photos' in ‘British Vogue’

The Duchess will put her fashion savviness to new use as guest editor for the prestigious magazine for its September issue, the fall fashion issue, according to an unidentified source.

37-year-old Meghan Markle will guest edit British Vogue’s most important edition of the year, the fall fashion issue, as a source shared with US Weekly recently, apart from being featured in the issue both in her words and in an exclusive photo shoot.

As a feminist, Markle reportedly plans to use to opportunity to let the voice of other women be heard in the edition, having them writing content for the issue.

MEGHAN, GUEST EDITOR

“Meghan will be writing an opinion piece of her own as well as bringing a selection of female change-makers on board to write their own personal essays,” the source revealed.

As of the Duchess’ photo session, it will apparently be done at her and husband Prince Harry’s new home at Frogmore Cottage during the third week of June.

On June 8, Markle made her first public appearance since introducing her firstborn Archie Harrison to the world about a month prior, at the Trooping the Color parade, which commemorates Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday.

While the recent mother has continued to appear in magazines since becoming a member of the British Royal Family, she has mostly talked about more serious subjects, but now she is expected to focus on fashion.

The subject is very dear to Markle, who used to have her own fashion and lifestyle blog, The Tig, until she left her old life as Hollywood star and celebrity blogger to assume new duties as Duchess of Sussex.

FOLLOWING THE STEPS OF FELLOW ROYALS

Markle has a reputation of doing things her own way as a royal, but there is actually a precedent to her upcoming collaboration with a magazine, as her father-in-law Prince Charles was guest editor of Country Life in 2013 to mark his 65th birthday, and then again when he turned 70.

Both Markle’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton and late mother-in-law Princess Diana have been on the cover of British Vogue, and Markle most likely would be following their steps for the September issue.

SHE HAS THE FAVOR OF ANNA WINTOUR

Markle has the blessing of iconic Vogue editor-in-chief 69-year-old Anna Wintour, who also praised Middleton, recently stating that the two duchesses “are going to keep the royal family afloat.”

Wintour was more than pleased by Markle’s display of good taste in her choice of a dress for her May 2017’s wedding to Harry.

“I think that her choice was brilliant, it was sophisticated, it was chic, it was grown-up,” the fashion legend commented.

“I thought she looked fantastic. The fact that she chose to walk down the aisle by herself, I also thought spoke for an independent woman,” Wintour added.

HER NEW LIFE AS A MOTHER

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to Frogmore Cottage early in April, but the biggest change in their lives came when Archie Harrison was born on May 6. Now they are adapting to their life as a family of three.

On June 8, Markle made her first public appearance since introducing her firstborn Archie Harrison to the world about a month prior, at the Trooping the Color parade, which commemorates Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday.

Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined The Queen and members of The Royal Family at the annual Trooping the Colour, to celebrate Her Majesty’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour orginated from traditional preparations for battle and has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years. In the 18th century, guards from the royal palaces regularly assembled to “troop" colours or flags down the rank, so they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers. In 1748, it was announced this parade would also mark the Sovereign’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour is performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies for The Queen’s birthday parade, allowing them to pay a personal tribute to Her Majesty. Today over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians came together on Horse Guards Parade in London in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare. The parade concludes with a 41-gun salute fired by The King’s Troop, following which The Queen leads members of The Royal Family back to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the Royal Air Force flypast display.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex rode in a chariot along with Middleton, with Harry wearing his full dress military uniform.

It was also the first time when Markle separated herself from Archie for a long time, even though he was reportedly not far from the site of the parade.

“She has spent almost every moment with him and saying goodbye was very difficult. But Meghan truly wanted to be at the celebration for the queen,” a source told US Weekly.

“Meghan loved seeing all the other royal children and was doting on them,” the source said, adding that on that day Archie got to meet some of his cousins.
