For the first time in the 103-year history of the British Vogue, the magazine is deviating from tradition and employing the services of a guest editor. And none other than the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is set to do the honors.

The Duchess is very interested in natural beauty, even on one of the world’s most prominent magazines as it is her strict rule for the magazine to reveal freckles.

According to the Editor-in-chief of the magazine, Edward Enninful, who worked with Meghan on the project, he said she has been ‘quite vocal.’ The pair chose the famous photographer, Peter Lindbergh, to handle the camera.

Meghan and Lindbergh’s relationship has a history as he was the one who handled her previous Vanity Fair cover, and as usual, she was always eager to show off her ‘freckles’ to the world.

Another instance where she proudly put her freckles on display was at her famous royal wedding to Prince Harry.
