Fans do not like Meghan Markle’s Vogue cover choices of women, and are making themselves heard on social media.
Meghan Markle’s Vogue cover
The Duchess of Sussex is the guest-editor for the September issue of British Vogue. The Royal couple’s official Instagram account announced on Sunday.
The magazine cover will feature 15 “trailblazing women” whom Meghan Markle admires the most. The women include actress and activist Jameela Jamil, actor Jane Fonda, activist Greta Thunberg, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, trans actor Laverne Cox, Adwoa Aboah, Salma Hayek, Yara Shahidi, and others.
The magazine will also cover a conversation between Meghan Markle and former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama.
However, people are not happy with the list of women Meghan has chosen. Specifically, many are upset that Queen Elizabeth is not part of the cover.
“Highly highly unhappy”
One person Tweeted, “Highly Highly unhappy with the choice of people…where are the scientists, armed forces, NHS staff and the Queen ? Am no longer buying Vogue…have bought for over 50 years #disappointed”
Another user was disappointed because the women were not relatable enough. They wrote, “Where are the REAL women who are working tirelessly to make a difference each day? Why are all these women celebrities and supermodels? This is not relatable? I am disappointed!”
Melania v Michelle
People were also questioning Markle’s decision to interview former First Lady over Melania Trump, the current First Lady of the US.
Where’s the Queen?
Many people wondered why the Queen did not make Meghan Markle’s list. Since “she surely is the most inspirational woman” according to them.
Refused to be “boastful”
Princess Diana and Kate Middleton have both been on the cover of Vogue previously. However, Markle refused the honor because she thought it would be “boastful”.
Furthermore, the Duchess of Sussex is the first Royal to act as a guest editor for Vogue magazine. She called the experience “rewarding, educational and inspiring.”
The “Force for Change” issue will be available in September.
