While many applaud Megan Markle's choice of women to be featured on the cover of the September issue of British Vogue, which she is hosting, under the banner "Force for Change", she has also been criticized. Some critics think there is one impressive woman who did not make the cut: Queen Elizabeth II.
The Importance of Women Presented on the Vogue Cover
Markle carefully selected a diverse range of 15 women to decorate the cover, which includes actor and women's rights defender Salma Hayek Pinoult, Nova Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, LQBTQIA + advocate and actor Laverne Cox, climate activist Greta Thunberg and youth voting activist and actor Jara Shahidi. There is a mirror space that reflects the image of the reader when he looks at the cover.
Sussex Royal's Instagram post explained: "For the cover, the Duchess has selected a diverse selection of women from all walks of life, each driving influence and raising the bar for equality, goodness, justice and openness. The sixteenth place on the cover, a mirror, was turned on so that when you hold the edition in your hands, you see yourself as part of that collective.
Edward Enniel, editor-in-chief of British Vogue, said of Markle & # 39; s decision not to include it on the cover alone: "In the end, she felt it would somehow be a" commendable "thing for this particular project . Instead, she wanted to focus on the women she admires. ”
Why some people think the Queen it should be on the cover
Naturally, almost everything that Markel does is criticized, so it's not too shocking to hear that she's under fire because it doesn't include the Queen.
A Twitter user asked : "Why is NM the Queen not featured on the cover of September Vogue, @RoyalFamily? Her Majesty is the perfect role model: like many of us, she had no choice but to do the work she was given. The ultimate grace and discretion for 70+ years.
Another user notes : "Too bad first page. Where are the doctors, scientists, teachers. Why a Child Climate Change Activist Who Should Be in School? Where is Her Majesty the Queen? #vogue #Meghan #duchessofsussex #selfindulgent. "
One critic thinks that the queen will find Markel's efforts" idiotic "
One strong critic of Markle," Dan Watton, "is not a fan of the Duchess's involvement with the problem at all, as long as the queen will found it "idiotic."
During an ITV Lorraine interview of 1945, Watton explained, "The Queen will consider this to be an absolutely ridiculously ridiculous decision, as I did. "
He added:" Remember Megan doesn't want to be a celebrity, she says she wants to be royalty. Royals don't guest edit magazines, celebrity guest edit magazines. Do you understand me? Do you see the meaning I am making?
Watton further stated, "I feel that I have to bring a little reality into the situation. Vogue is perhaps the most elite expensive snobby fashion-dominated magazine, dominated by skinny magazines worldwide. This is not some major force for good, this is an elite magazine. ”
