Meghan Markle has released a new behind-the-scenes video from her time serving as guest editor of British Vogue last year.
Filmed last August at the magazine's London headquarters, the video offers an intimate glimpse of how Meghan worked alongside editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.
The video was released to celebrate the news that the issue, entitled "Forces For Change," was the fastest-selling in the history of British Vogue.
"#ForcesForChange, guest edited by The Duchess of Sussex, was our fastest-selling issue in the history of #BritishVogue," Enninful is quoted as saying in the post, adding that the magazine sold out in just 10 days and was the biggest-selling issue of the past decade. "I can't wait to see what 2020 has in store...” he added cryptically. (Could this mean that Meghan could work with British Vogue again in her post-royal life?!)
In the adorable video, Meghan reveals that she herself pitched the idea of guest-editing to Enninful, who confirmed that she's the first person in the history of British Vogue to do so.
"You have an editor’s eye," he enthuses. "I’ve never seen anything like it. You were so thorough, from beginning to end." Meghan modestly points out that she left "the fashion stuff" to the experts, before adding that her priority was making sure that "anyone, no matter who they are, picking up this issue, should be able to see themself in it. That’s what I feel really proud that we’ve accomplished."
Back when Meghan's participation was first announced last summer, Buckingham Palace revealed that she had been working on "Forces for Change" for the past seven months. The edition focused on "a collection of trailblazing changemakers, united by their fearlessness in breaking barriers," with highlights including a conversation between the Duchess and Michelle Obama.
