Meghan Markle Shares Behind-the-Scenes Footage of Her British Vogue Guest

The video opens with the pair sharing how the guest edit came to life. “In January, I got a text from my phone” Edward recalls, to which Meghan responds: “I wanted to see if you would help me with Smart Works, right? And so, there we were, having tea.”

Edward remembers barely containing his excitement on a visit to Buckingham Palace to meet her, where she insisted he call her Meghan and not “duchess.” During the visit, Meghan recalls asking whether she might be able to guest edit a Vogue issue as part of a larger project.

“Maybe I could push it a little bit more and see if you would be willing to let me guest edit,” she said. Edward replied, “Yes please,” thus and so she became the first guest editor of British Vogue in history.

This week, British Vogue editor in chief Edward Enninful revealed that Meghan Markle’s guest edit of the magazine’s September 2019 issue was the fastest selling issue in the magazine’s history. To celebrate the good news, Meghan posted a behind-the-scenes video on the Sussex Royal Instagram account – which was recorded back in August – showing her and Edward discussing how the issue, and their collaboration, came together.

The video then cuts to the two phoning some of the 15 women that were featured on the cover, including Laverne Cox, Adwoa Aboah, Yara Shahidi, and Jane Fonda – who had particularly nice things to say about her inclusion in the project.To finish off the celebration, Meghan ran out of shot telling Edward she had a “little surprise.” She returned with two glittery party hats and party horns, which made them both burst into laughter as Meghan said “Congratulations, E!” Watch the full video above to get the scoop on more behind the scenes about Meghan’s successful guest edit.

Why Body Worlds is the place to visit in London

To try something new in 2020, visit Body Worlds London. This exhibition, which has been touring the world and has now settled in the former London home of Ripley’s: Believe It or Not, is the work of Gunther von Hagens, a German anatomist.

It is comprised of human and animal corpses and anatomical pieces, which have been preserved through plastination (they are covered in plastic!). Unsurprisingly, this exhibition is not for the squeamish. But von Hagens claims that all human specimens were obtained with full knowledge and consent of donors before they died.

Discover the beauty beneath your skin as you discover what’s inside. Expect a unique, exciting and interactive experience, which has been described as ‘emotional’, ‘extraordinary’ and even ‘life-changing’. Learn about the impact of your lifestyle and diet, and how our bodies react to our behaviour.

Open 365 days a year, there has never been a better time to visit this ‘must-see’ exhibition which will inspire you to rethink how you look at your body. You can even sign yourself up for plastination if you like the exhibit so much that you want to be there forever!

Body Works is the perfect mix of educational and artistic, for those that want to learn about their bodies without undertaking medical school!
