British Vogue editor Edward Enninful says Meghan Markle & # 39; very involved & # 39; was at the September issue of the magazine, for which she was a guest editor – in fact, she continued to work on it during her pregnancy and after the birth of baby Archie.
The 47-year-old editor shared details of Megan's gig guest behind the scenes and elaborated on the problem Good morning America that the 37-year-old is free & # 39; hands on & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; We worked on this for seven months and the duchess was very practical from the start & # 39 ;, he said. & # 39; She was very involved. & # 39;

Although some celebrity collaborations simply involve the star involved and put its approval stamp – and name – on a final product, Enninful said this is not the case with Meghan.
& # 39; I mean, we really worked side by side, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; She was involved in the photographer's choice, the subject choice, from the front of the book to the end, and she did this when she was pregnant, and from the time she had the baby and after she had had the baby. & # 39;
That topic was & # 39; Forces of Change & # 39 ;, highlighting a group of 15 women who make the difference.
& # 39; Megan wanted to bring these incredible changers more or less to the attention of this issue, & # 39; he explained.

& # 39; The message is female empowerment. And the message is also about the kind of plotting your claim in the world and not being afraid. And that's why we called it Forces of Change, & he said.
Publisher Vanessa Kingori also had kind things to say about Megan and told GMA last year: & # 39; She represents a new kind of diversity and modernity. & # 39;
Although the news broke on Sunday evening, Enninful did not give many interviews about Megan, with the only one broadcast on GMA so far – which, incidentally, is the same morning show where Megan & BFF Jessica Mulroney serves as fashion correspondent.
But Enninful shared a few selection quotes Vogue website, which says: & # 39; To edit the most influential beacon of the land of change guest British Vogue at this time has been an honor, a pleasure and a great surprise. & # 39;

In summary: Enninful was very happy that the duchess signed up for the issue
& # 39; As you will see in her selections in this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether it is female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege.
& # 39; From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether it would be on it or not. In the end, she found that in some ways it was a "boasting" thing to do for this specific project. She wanted to focus instead on the women she admires. & # 39;
Together, he said, they agreed to hire photographer Peter Lindbergh to photograph the stars and subjects of the issue.
& # 39; It was one of those brilliant spontaneous moments when HRH The Duchess of Sussex and I had exactly the same idea at exactly the same time, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; Peter sees beauty in real people, in real situations. He makes everyone feel at their best. & # 39;

Peter told me in the meantime Vogue.com about the clear instructions Megan gave him for the portraits and told him that he & # 39; of course & # 39; had to keep.
# I hate retouching, I hate makeup. I always say, "Take off the make-up!" Said the 74-year-old.
& # 39; The number of beautiful women who have asked me to extend their legs or move their eyes further apart … You wouldn't believe it. It is a culture of madness.
& # 39; My instructions from the Duchess were clear: "I want to see freckles!" he added. & # 39; Well, that was like running through open doors. I like freckles. & # 39;
