The letter from the Duchess of Sussex to Vogue readers says she & # 39; has no fear of depths & # 39;
The Duchess of Sussex said she & # 39; has no fear of depths, but a great fear of superficial life & # 39; after it was announced that she was going to edit an edition of British Vogue.
In a letter to readers posted on the website of the magazine, Meghan said she hopes she has made a magazine with & # 39; positivity, kindness, humor and inclusiveness & # 39 ;.
In the missive, she claims that with her editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, she wanted to make a publication of & # 39; both content and light-hearted & # 39 ;, which revealed that the duchess thought it was & # 39; boastful & # 39; would be to be the magazine's cover star itself.
The duchess also warned that although her guiding hand will be felt on most pages of next month's edition, it will contain traditional elements such as advertisements.

She writes in her guest editor's letter that just a few hours after meeting Enninful, she had called on the courage to question him about recording the September edition – an important issue because it will be published just before the fall / winter fashion season.
Meghan, who was then five months pregnant with son Archie, said: & I asked the question. I actually typed the question several times and deleted it until I had the courage to ask the question in question: & # 39; Edward … instead of opening the cover, would you be my guest who is your September issue edited? & # 39;

The editor's reply that he & # 39; like & # 39; van Meghan would be if his editor put her on a journey where she said she immersed herself in magazine life, from learning technical terms such as FoB – front of the book – to holding regular meetings with staff to plan the problem .
The former actress said about her edition: & # 39; I hope that you will generally have a sense of positivity, kindness, humor and inclusiveness. & # 39;
And she describes her interview with the & # 39; extraordinary & # 39; former American first lady Michelle Obama as & # 39; a frank and sincere conversation & # 39 ;.
Fifteen women who inspire the duchess were chosen as cover stars in a grid of 16 photos, with a small mirror on the front so that every reader could be included in the Forces For Change slogan.
Baroness Doreen Lawrence, the mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence, is not on the front, but appears on a photo with Meghan's letter.

The duchess continues: & # 39; But above all, this issue is about the power of the collective.
& # 39; When identifying our personal strengths, it is anchored in the knowledge that we are stronger together. You find that spirit of inclusiveness on the cover: various portraits of women of different age, color, religion, nationality and life experience, and of indisputable inspiration.
& # 39; Some, I have had the pleasure of meeting and recruited myself personally for this issue, others I have admired from afar for their dedication to a cause, their fearlessness in breaking barriers, or what they represent simply by to be.

& # 39; These are our forces for change. And between all these strong women on the cover, a mirror – a space for you, the reader, to see yourself. Because you are also part of this collective. & # 39;
Meghan revealed the philosophy that led her guest editor of the fashion bible Vogue, was a quote from the book The Four-Chambered Heart by Anais Nin, based on the author's relationship with a loved one.
The female protagonist Djuna tells her partner Rango, the duchess writes: & I have to be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of superficial life. & # 39;
Meghan writes: & # 39; I introduced myself to this problem, & # 39; why would we swim in the shallow end of the pool if we could go to the deep end? & # 39; A metaphor for life, as well as for this issue. Let's be braver. Let's go a little deeper.
& # 39; That's what Edward and I wanted to achieve. A matter of both content and frivolity. & # 39;
