The newly wed Duchess of Sussex has made it into Vogue’s list of most influential women.
The list, which can be read in British Vogue’s July issue (on sale now) has also been posted on the fashion bible’s website, called: The Vogue 25: Meet The Women Shaping 2018.
Vogue’s new editor, Edward Enninful has spoken publicly about his desire to diversify the pages of Vogue, with stars such as Adwao Aboah and Gugu Mbatha-Raw gracing his covers, and the Vogue 25 list is powerfully inclusive.
It includes a host of fascinating women, differing in age, race and profession – from producers, actresses, journalists, academics, and now, royalty.
The list includes 24-year old Letitia Wright, born in Ghana and raised in Tottenham who has just starred in ‘culture-shifting box office triumph, Black Panther.’
Vogue said of Letitia: ‘Her honesty when discussing her struggle with depression and speaking about her faith makes her the perfect pin-up for now.’
TV Producer and environmentalist, Orla Doherty is also included in the list.
Doherty produced the lasest episode of the BBC’s Blue Planet II, which highlighted the shocking amount of plastic floating in our oceans.
Saddened and appalled by what they were seeing, the episode spurred people on to try and do something about it, and campaigns for re-usable cups and bans on plastic straws popped up over night.
Of Meghan Markle, British Vogue said ‘Meghan Markle’s story (and wardrobe) captured the public imagination like no other this year.’
‘But her influence stretches far beyond the ceaseless coverage of her style – as a bi-racial campaigning feminist from America, she is helping to forge a new 21st century identity for the monarchy.’ the magazine reported.
Meghan Markle is well placed amongst a list of women fighting for their voices to be heard whilst supporting other women in the process – something Meghan Markle publicly champions and feels passionately about.
Only a few weeks ago, Kensington Palace updated their biography on Meghan Markle, where they quoted her saying “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist.”
The list also mentions someone well known to Meghan – the Queen. In it’s opening statement about power, Vogue poses the question: what does it mean to have power as a woman in the 21st century? And how does that power differ for the Queen, when her power is eternal?
It’s an inspiring read, and a net cast refreshingly wide.
The Vogue 25 list also mentions Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, and sites writer and academic, Sinead Burke, biochemist, Priyanka Joshi and singer, Dua Lipa as one of it’s top 25 women to follow in 2018.
