Talking and being recognized with Meghan was one thing. But for Jameela it was also an incredible privilege to get a Vogue cover – and the September issue, no less.

& # 39; I remember being a teenage model when I starved at myself and thought that would bring me success or something like a Vogue cover, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; And it's so great to find myself, 20 years later, and 30 pounds. heavier, actually on the cover.

Jameela has in the past received compliments about the Duchess of Sussex – and vice versa.

At the time, they chose @i_weigh as one of 16 mental health promotion accounts to promote and write: & May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the US and May 13-19 is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK.

& # 39; To pay homage to all the incredible work that people around the world are doing in this space, we hope to shed a light on various Instagram accounts that support mental well-being, mental fitness, body positivity, self-care and the importance of human connection – not just to hear each other, but to listen. & # 39;

Jameela was delighted and wrote on Twitter and Instagram that it & # 39; wild & # 39; was and & # 39; so & # 39; n honor! & # 39;

That same month she flocked even more to Life and style.

& # 39; I love Meghan Markle so much, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; She breathes so much fresh air and she had to overcome so much racism and so much classism when she entered the royal family just because she accidentally fell in love with a man who is in that family.

& # 39; I think it is really revolutionizing, & # 39; she went on. & # 39; And I love Harry. I've always been a big fan of him and so I think they are great together. & # 39;
