As per their official Royal Instagram page, the Duchess handpicked 15 trailblazing women— "each driving impact and raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice and open-mindedness"— to feature on the breathtaking black-and-white cover.
The September issue includes Australian model Adut Akech, model Adwoa Aboah, environmentalist Greta Thunberg, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, actress Jane Fonda and disability advocate Sinead O'Burke.
According to the mum to Archie Harrison— who she shares with Prince Harry— the 16th space on the cover was intentionally left blank "so that when you hold the issue in your hands, you see yourself as part of this collective".
Also included are “inspirational articles written by Brené Brown, Jameela Jamil and many others. Equally, you’ll find grassroots organisations and incredible trailblazers working tirelessly behind the scenes to change the world for the better.”
The September issue comes two years after Meghan shut down her lifestyle blog, which quickly became a place where she shared all aspects of her life.
“After close to three beautiful years on this adventure with you, it’s time to say goodbye to The Tig,” she wrote at the time.
“What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being ‘the change you wish to see in the world.’ Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough. Thank you for everything.”
