Meghan Markle welcomed baby Archie last month, but it seems that the mum is still keeping busy – even while on maternity leave…
Meghan and Harry’s first bundle of joy was born in May, and the Duchess has since been enjoying her time off to look after her baby.
She briefly stepped out publicly twice – firstly to introduce baby Archie to the world, and a few weeks later to join the royal family at the Trooping of the Colour celebrations.
But while she’s officially off duty, the Duchess is apparently working behind the scenes on a very exciting project.
According to The Sun, the former actress will be guest editing British Vogue in September, and write pieces dedicated to causes very close to her heart – female empowerment and women’s education.
While the news haven’t been confirmed, Meghan is reportedly set to also open the doors to her home at Frogmore Cottage to the publication – but Archie and Harry will not be part of the photo shoot.
A source told the publication: ‘Edward [British Vogue’s editor] has been courting her since day one. Anna is massively miffed that she’s missed out.
‘This is nothing to do with Archie, or family, or home life. It’s purely on women’s empowerment.’
The last time Meghan gave an interview to a magazine was back in 2017, when she covered Vanity Fair magazine.
At the time she opened about her romance with Prince Harry and the public’s perception, before the pair announced their engagement.
‘We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception’, she said.
‘Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.’
Appearing in Vogue – British or American – is not new to members of the royal family.
Princess Diana was in the cover of Vogue four times, and Kate Middleton graced the cover of the British edition the fashion publication back in 2016.
Former Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman said at the time: ‘It’s a huge honour and incredibly exciting for us to have HRH The Duchess of Cambridge featuring on the cover of British Vogue and as part of our centenary issue.
‘For me personally it has been a wonderful experience to have had the opportunity to work with her on this, and I am immensely proud of what we have produced.
‘This special issue of the magazine is very close to my heart as it had to reflect on 100 years of British Vogue, and so I am hugely grateful that we have been able to continue with our tradition of outstanding royal portraiture with these pictures.’
