She also thanked Edward Enninful, editor of British Vogue, for his involvement in creating a special issue. In her words, the September issue of Vogue reflected the world of today. It was not only beautiful but was strong in its diversity. Edward bagged the additional honor of the ‘best editor’ bestowed by PPA.

Meghan has made an impression

According to Town and Country Mag, the collaboration of Meghan Markle and British Vogue could be a forerunner of changes.

The issue guest-edited by Meghan saw commercial success. It turned out to be the fastest-selling edition in the magazine's 104-year history. The issue won awards including one for its editor.

The issue's cover featured a number of influential women but Meghan was not among them. She did not want to take center stage but wanted to focus on the women she admires. It was her way of saying thank you to the world. When she decided to take on the responsibility of guest editing the issue, she was a part of the British royal family. However, she and her husband Harry have stepped away from royal duties and are in search of a new life far away from Britain.
