    Meghan Markle has received some exciting news today, as one of her most important projects as received a major recognition.

    Back in September, the Duchess of Sussex teamed up with British Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful to guest edit an important issue of the historic fashion magazine.

    Coming together to construct the Forces for Change issue, Meghan and Edward hand-picked 15 diverse and incredible women from all over the world who work towards important change in the world.

    The iconic cover saw a black and white collage with photos of the 15 trailblazers, plastered with the words ‘Forces for Change’ across the top.

    And now the important cover has won the Diversity Initiative of the Year award at the Professional Publishers Association (PPA) Awards.

    Taking to Instagram to announce the exciting news, Edward wrote alongside a photo of the cover, ‘I’m thrilled to say that #BritishVogue’s September 2019 #ForcesForChange issue – guest-edited by the inimitable Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex @SussexRoyal – has won Diversity Initiative of the Year.
