Meghan Markle has revealed how she celebrated getting her role as guest editor role for British Vogue, as she opened up about her baby boy Archie in her editor’s letter.
The mum confirmed that she guest edited British Vogue’s September issue over the weekend, and now more details about the collaboration with editor Edward Enninful and his team have been revealed.
Writing in her editor’s letter, the Duchess opened up about how she was five months pregnant when she started working with the magazine – which would have been around the end of last year.
She wrote: ‘I was about five months pregnant when this process began, and by the time you hold this issue in your hands, my husband and I will be holding our three-month-old baby boy in ours.
‘It’s a very special time for me personally, on so many levels; working with Edward and his team, both during my pregnancy and my maternity leave, has played no small part in that joy – it has been a privilege to be welcomed and supported by this amazing team.’
Meghan, who also mentioned her passion for writing, confessed that she was the one asking to guest edit the issue – instead of being on the front cover.
She wrote: ‘So I asked the question. Actually, I typed and deleted the question several times until I built up the courage to ask the question in question.
‘“Edward… instead of doing the cover, would you be open to me guest editing your September issue?”
Just like most of us after we send an important text, the former Suits actress revealed she sat looking at the screen while Edward typed – and then celebrated his positive response with her dogs on the sofa.
‘The ellipsis… the ‘dot dot dot’ that inspires the greatest practice of patience in this digital era. And then it appeared, EE’s reply: ‘Yes! I would love for you to be my guest editor”’.
‘Sitting on my sofa at home, two dogs nestled across me, I quietly celebrated when the words appeared on my screen.’
