& # 39; It's extremely disappointing & # 39 ;: Meghan Markle & # 39; s Vogue issue about & # 39; pioneering & # 39; women has a VERY similar design to an Australian book – and the two authors are not very happy with it
- Meghan Markle has published the latest edition of the fashion bible UK Vogue
- The song, titled & # 39; Forces for Change & # 39 ;, contains 15 inspiring women on the cover
- In an Australian book, & # 39; The Game Changers & # 39 ;, 15 women were also on the cover
- Markle appeared in that best-selling book of 2016, for which she wrote an essay
- Readers have suggested that the two publications are strikingly similar in style
The first issue of UK Vogue published by guests of Meghan Markle is remarkably similar to an Australian book about inspiring women that the Duchess of Sussex helped to produce.
The duchess wrote an essay for & # 39; The Game Changers & # 39; from Samantha Brett and Steph Adams three years before she helped edit the Vogue edition with the same theme & # 39; Forces for Change & # 39 ;.
Both publications contain 15 back and white photos of pioneering women on the cover.
Brett, a journalist with the Seven Network and a social commentator, told Daily Mail Australia that she was astonished when she saw the Vogue cover on Monday.
& # 39; It is clearly very flattering, she clearly loves our concept! & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I love Meghan and am a big fan, but if that is what people point out to us, then it is extremely disappointing. & # 39;

Brett and Adams worked on The Game Changers for several years to produce a bestseller coffee table book that was first published in December 2016.
The Duchess was one of the 15 women depicted on the cover of The Game Changers – which she personally approved – and received several copies of the book.
According to Vogue, she was also deeply involved in the production of & # 39; Forces for Change & # 39; with 15 women she admires on the front.
It was the Duchess's idea that the 16th image on the cover is a mirror to engage & # 39; the reader and encourage them to use their own platforms to bring about change & # 39 ;.
Royal officials said the Vogue issue & # 39; pioneering change makers & # 39; contained, united by their fearlessness when breaking barriers. & # 39;

The first edition of The Game Changers was sold out as soon as it was released at the end of 2016.
It appeared on Good Morning America and in other international media coverage as the publication coincided with news that Markle had a relationship with Prince Harry.
The Game Changers were republished in November 2017 with more women on the cover and is still a bestseller.
The Duchess is the first royal guest to edit Vogue, and the line-up of women she admired consisted of celebrities, politicians, and activists.
The September cover includes images from New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, actress Jane Fonda, the Australian model Adwoa Aboah and the campaigner for climate change Greta Thunberg.
The magazine contains an interview between the Duchess and the former American First Lady Michelle Obama.
The issue has already been criticized by some readers, with an online commentator who tweeted it & # 39; empty waste & # 39; and another called the magazine & # 39; absolutely terrible & # 39 ;.
Edward Enninful, editor-in-chief of the magazine, said the duchess chose not to appear on the cover because she believed it was a & # 39; boastful & # 39; matter for her.
