The Instagram account for the Sussex Royal Family announced the involvement of the Duchess in an Instagram post saying, “We are proud to announce that Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex is the Guest Editor for the September issue of British Vogue. For the past seven months, The Duchess has curated the content with British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful to create an issue that highlights the power of the collective. They have named the issue: “Forces for Change”

To watch the full #ForcesForChange video for the September Issue of @BritishVogue, guest edited by The Duchess of Sussex, please visit our IGTV. Her Royal Highness is the first Guest Editor for British Vogue’s September Issue and for the last seven months has worked to create an issue of inclusivity and inspiration, focusing on what connects us rather than what divides us. Fifteen women were chosen for the cover including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who generously lent her time to support The Duchess in this important issue. The women first met last autumn during Their Royal Highness’ official tour of New Zealand. Above, PM Ardern says: “One change that I’ve noticed over the course of my career, is just how polarised the world is now. I do think there is a solution to that though, and that’s ultimately us coming back to the humanity that we all share." Thank you PM Ardern for being an amazing force for change. For more details on this special project, please see previous post and stay tuned for more updates throughout the week.

For the cover, The Duchess chose a diverse selection of women from all walks of life, each driving impact and raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice and open-mindedness. The sixteenth space on the cover, a mirror, was included so that when you hold the issue in your hands, you see yourself as part of this collective.”

Asides for Chimamanda Adichie, the other women on the cover include Yara Shahidi, Salma Hayek, Laverne Cox, Adwoa Aboah, Adut Akech, Ramla Ali, Jacinda Ardern, Sinead Burke, Gemma Chan, Jane Fonda, Jameela Jamil, Greta Thunberg, Christy Turlington, and Francesca Hayward.

This edition also features an exclusive interview between The Duchess and the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, and a candid conversation between The Duke of Sussex and Dr Jane Goodall. It also features grassroots organisations and trailblazers working behind the scenes to change the world for the better.
