Meghan Markle "snubbed" from Vogue legends cover
When Edward Enninful debuted his final cover, royal fans were surprised to see that the Duchess of Sussex hadn’t made the cut. Meghan Markle, 42, was noticeably absent from the impressive shoot, featuring 40 "of the most booked and blessed women on earth" with her eagle-eyed fans taking to social media to suggest she had been 'snubbed.'
Inside scoop from Vogue insiders
According to Vogue insiders, the reason behind Meghan Markle's absence was quite simple. The Mail on Sunday reported that she was never considered because only women who had appeared on the cover previously were invited.
Meghan's famous friends featured in the shoot
Meghan’s friends, including Oprah, Serena Williams, and Jameela Jamil, all appeared in the glamorous picture marking the March 2024 edition. They joined a star-studded lineup that included Naomi Campbell, Victoria Beckham, Cindy Crawford, Jane Fonda, Miley Cyrus, Kate Moss, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Gemma Chan, and Selma Blair.
Meghan's previous Vogue cover and her focus on other women
It came as a shock that Meghan wasn’t featured on the cover, especially after she became close with Enninful while guest editing the September 2019 issue. However, it was revealed that she left herself off the cover over fears of appearing "boastful." Instead, she chose to focus on 15 women who "break barriers." Enninful supported her decision and praised her choice to highlight the women she admires.
