Two months ago, Meghan Markle was reportedly & # 39; too busy to take care of her baby & # 39; to meet the president of her own country during his state visit to the UK.
Now we discover that she was in fact busy with the birth of another elitist production – the Vogue magazine.
The news that Meghan has been working on editing the September issue of Vogue for the past seven months is no surprise to me. As an actress on the B-list, she probably longed for her adult life for a Vogue star.
News that Buckingham Palace had her do, however, is a big surprise because Meghan is now supposed to be a member of the royal family and not a publicity-craving celebrity.
And being royal means staying out of politics.
The news that Meghan Markle has been working on editing the September issue of Vogue for the past seven months is no surprise to me. As an actress on the B-list, she probably longed for her adult life for a Vogue star. She puts the problem together with the British editor-in-chief Edward Enninful
But here Meghan is about as political as a royal man has ever been.
She has chosen 15 female "pioneers" and "changemakers" for the special number & # 39; Forces for Change & # 39 ;, all because they promote "equality, kindness and open-mindedness."
The women she selected represent the greatest hits of virtue signaling – with a nod to everything from & # 39; body positivity & # 39 ;, female empowerment, mental health, disability and race to transgender rights, climate change, diversity and privileges.
The latter made me laugh out loud.
I am sure that the only thing we need most in the world right now is a fabulously rich and entitled princess who gives us privileges from her royal rooms full of servants.
Equally ridiculous was the image of a mirror on the cover, hidden among all multi-millionaires.
"A mirror has been supplied so that you can consider yourself as part of this collective," writes the Sussex Royal account.
Oh pur lease. Pass the sick bucket on.
Vogue & # 39; s editor-in-chief Edward Enniful stumbled: "Editing the most influential beacon of host country British Vogue is an honor, a pleasure and a great surprise."
Meghan Markle is a lot, but & # 39; the most influential beacon of country change & # 39; she certainly isn't.
The fact that she allowed Enniful to explain this as a fact in a statement suggests that the duchess's ego is dangerously getting out of hand.

(We were told hilariously that Meghan insisted that she not put herself on the cover because she didn't want to look & # 39; too boastful & # 39; …)
In a post on the Sussex Instagram page – it's worth remembering that Prince Harry recently told us to stay out of social media because it's so bad for our mental health – we're on the informed that the duchess has spent the past seven months creating & # 39; a matter of inclusiveness and inspiration, focused on what connects instead of what separates us. & # 39;
How thoughtful of her!
But of course her list excludes the entire male population of the planet.
So it's not at all inclusive, and also her message is that only women can change the world.
I thought Meghan had learned her "wake up" lesson after the banana debacle in which she drew phallic fruit for a group of sex workers with guff, such as "You are special" and "You are strong."
But no, Meghan is here to save us and there is nothing we can do to stop her.
"LET ONLY!" I hear a little cry.
But the problem is that she is not leaving the US alone.
Meghan did not have to guest-edit Vogue.
She has already been swallowed by the udder of royal fame as a starving desert traveler arriving in an overflowing oasis.
Meghan chose 15 female "pioneers" and "changemakers" for the special song "Forces for Change", all chosen because they promote "equality, kindness and open-mindedness." (Pictured: Jacinda Ardern, Salma Hayek Pinault, Laverne Cox, Jameela Jamil, Yara Shahidi and Gemma Chan, Christy Turlington Burns, Adwoa Aboah, Adut Akech, Ramla Ali, Sinead Burke, Francesca Hayward, Jane Fonda, Greta Thunberg and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie )
But that is not enough.
Meghan's goal in editing Vogue is not, as she claims, simply changing the world; it is to make it the PC madman she wants it to be, and to drag us all with her to wake & # 39; Utopia & # 39 ;.
But by imposing on us radical liberal opinions, she plays a very badly advised game that I can guarantee will end in tears.
There is a reason why royals stay out of politics, and it is that they run the risk of looking like hypocrites.
Let's take just one of Meghan & # 39; s chosen Vogue heroines to illustrate the point.
Jameela Jamil, the DJ and actress who became "body positive activist", is a small charmer. She recently called me a 'sh * t stain' and 'a huge pile of w * nk' on Twitter after I had wondered about the bizarre announcement by Sam Smith that he now quickly identifies himself as non-binary after being a gay man from the cupboard came.
But it is not her views about me that worry.
They are her views on other women.
Mrs. Jamil was, in her own words, a "slut-shameful, judgmental" columnist for Company magazine who repeatedly attacked other women for their behavior.
She is branded as a "SWERF," which is a "sex worker excluding radical feminist" for the non-guard because she so regularly criticized women for doing something sexual, including the kind of sex workers Meghan had signed her bananas to support.
The list of women that Jamil has abused and embarrassed for failing to meet her high moral standard is long.
She said she hoped Cardi B and Iggy Azalea & # 39; would put on their pants in public & # 39 ;, Miley Cyrus accused of having & # 39; a vagina without a platform & # 39; compared to Beyonce with a & # 39; stripper & # 39 ;, the double agents of the Kardashians for the Patriarchy & # 39; who & # 39; fill their bags with the blood and diarrhea of teenage girls & # 39; and Rihanna attacked for & # 39; showing off a relationship with a man who knows the world, beat her senselessly, her relentless promotion of marijuana and daring stage antics … "

Jamil & # 39; s last words in her last poisonous diatribe were: "Rihanna, are you gonna shut my mouth down, do you want?"
So Jamil is of course the complete antithesis of "equality, kindness and open mind", not least when it comes to women.
She is also an outspoken campaigner against models for airbrushing magazines and celebrities to create an illusion of unrealistic beauty standards.
But which magazine has demonstrably done more than any other?
There are other problems I have with this latest Meghan stunt.
First, its primary role is now to promote Britain, like every member of the British royal family.
That is why they receive palaces, servants and a gilded lifestyle that are financed by taxpayers.
Yet her list contains only five British women.
She also chooses five American women and chose former First Lady Michelle Obama as the subject of her own big interview.
The message is pretty clear: promoting Brand Meghan to America is more important to her than promoting Brand Britain.
Meghan's famous friends will love her collaboration with Vogue. After all, it is the magazine that they all read.
But I can guarantee that the British public will not be so in love with it.
I read a comment on Twitter that said: "A feminist who preaches equality and merit, while taking full advantage of the spotlight she only received through marriage with someone who won the birth lottery. Makes me sick. & # 39;
This was a popular sentiment.
Meghan has shown a disturbing tendency since she married Harry because he wanted to eat cake and eat it.
She constantly talks about privacy, but also wants to edit magazines to promote herself and tell us how we can live our lives.
I fear that this absurd double standard will not fly.
Here is my advice to Meghan: take a good look in the mirror that you have stuck to your Vogue cover and ask yourself a question: "Do I want to be a royal or a virtue-signaling political activist celebrity?"
She can't be both.
