The cover features photos of 15 high-profile women from various walks of life, including actresses Gemma Chan, Laverne Cox, Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek, Jamil and Yara Shahidi along with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Royal Ballet principal dancer Francesca Hayward, model and maternal health advocate Christy Turlington and more.


"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 16th 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." British Vogue noted.

"Guest editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring, to deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created." Markle said in her Instagram post.
