It became known why Meghan Markle was not included in the 40 legendary women on the cover of British Vogue
nsiders have revealed the reason for Meghan Markle's absence on the March cover of Vogue's Iconic Women, the "farewell" issue of the magazine's outgoing editor-in-chief Edward Eninful. Fans were outraged that the Duchess of Sussex was not among the 40 famous beauties.
In addition, Markle's close friends, including Oprah, Serena Williams and Jamila Jamil, posed for the camera. This was reported by The Mirror.
Meghan's absence from the star-studded list was even more surprising given that she was the guest editor of the September 2019 issue of Vogue. During this period, the Duchess of Sussex became a close friend of Eninful.
Many fans were outraged by Meghan's "ignoring", which sparked a discussion online. However, according to Vogue insiders, the real reason was much simpler.
A source told the Daily Mail that the real reason for Markle's absence was that only women who had already posed on the cover before were invited. It turns out that Meghan had a chance to grace Vogue many years ago, but Prince Harry's wife was too modest to take advantage of this opportunity.
Meghan's September 2019 issue, titled "Forces for Change," featured 15 female innovators. The Duchess decided not to put herself on the cover because she was afraid it would look like "bragging."
At the time, Eninful praised her decision. "From the very beginning, we talked about the cover, whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that for this particular project, it would be 'bragging' in a way," he said, adding that "instead, she wanted to focus on women she admires."
