Francesca Hayward, 27, born in Nairobi and moved to Sussex at the age of two to live with her British grandparents, went to Instagram to thank both Meghan and Vogue Edward Enninful's editor for such an & # 39; honor & # 39; after she appeared on the cover.

The dancer started to learn ballet at the age of three, after becoming obsessed with the nutcracker ballet, and started training at a professional dance school at the age of 11.

In 2010, she joined the Royal ballet after winning impressive prizes such as the Young British Dancer of the Year, performing in classical ballets such as Romeo and Juliet, and is now their Principal Dancer.

This year, she took the time to get out of the royal ballet to film Cats' new live remake – where she plays a cat named & # 39; Victoria the White & # 39 ;.

Earlier this month, when the trailer was released for the film, Francesca became entangled in online criticism because fans claimed that film directors had used CGI to launder her.

Francesca can be seen on the Vogue cover with her hair back, relaxed and with a white shirt and a cream-colored jacket.

She went to her Instagram page to post the cover and thanked both the Duchess and Edward who said: & I have been reading Vogue since I was a little girl, so I can't explain what this means on the cover of the September issue 2019 published by HRH The Duchess of Sussex.

& # 39; Being these extraordinary women and being recognized as one of the Forces for Change is an incredible honor. The most immense thanks to @edward_enninful and @sussexroyal.

She contradicted Fashion last year about her career and said: & # 39; I remember the point that I realized I could do it professionally as a job and get paid for it. When that was sunk, it was just amazing, and I felt really happy. & # 39;

Recalling her time at ballet school at a young age, she also said: & # 39; At the age of 11 you learn to criticize every day and make something positive out of it – otherwise you will never get into ballet. & # 39;

Last year she released a limited edition range with the Canadian fitness brand lululemon, while painter Vanessa Garwood painted the dancer's portrait last year – which appeared in the Natioanl Potrait gallery.

In the past, the dancer said she was inspired to become a ballerina at the age of two when she saw a video of The Nutcracker by Tchaikovsky.

She joined a local ballet school, Le Serve School of Ballet, and was encouraged to audition for White Lodge – which serves as the junior part of the Royal Ballet School.

She officially went to the ballet school at 11 and got her first break in 2012 with Clara in the nutcracker and went to perform in Sleeping Beauty and Giselle.

She told the Evening Standard in 2016: & # 39; When I did Romeo and Juliet and The Nutcracker, because they were two of my favorites in my living room. I got really emotional – I'm not a very emotional person – but I got on Juliet and I thought I'd cry before I even started.

& # 39; I said to myself: "No, save it for the end!" I was just: "Oh wow, this is it, Opera House, Royal Ballet, me. This actually happens". & # 39;

In December she can also be seen in the live remake of Cats with stars such as Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and Idris Elba.

But earlier this month, many fans of the show went to Twitter to criticize the trailer – convinced she was whitewashed.

The ballerina, who plays the main character in the adaptation, is seen pirouetting and frolicking with a white fur face in the clip released on Thursday.

Fans believe that Hayward & # 39; s feline shape should have been depicted with fur to match its natural skin color.

Although the character in the original musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber & # 39; Victoria the White & # 39; is called, some believe they have the & # 39; random point & # 39; could have easily changed.
