According to the British Vogue, the women on the cover of the September edition of the magazine were personally selected by the Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle.

The Duchess said in a statement that she had sought to steer the focus of the September issue, usually, the year’s most-read, to “the values, causes and people making an impact in the world today.

She reportedly spent seven months working with British Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Edward Enninful on the issue and took time to select the women to grace the cover of the magazine.

The Duchess of Sussex is the first guest editor of the September issue in the magazine’s 103-year history
