Meghan Markle To Be Social Conscience At Vogue + Photo Backlash
Meghan Markle is in talks to become a columnist for Vogue magazine, per The Daily Mail. But she won’t be dishing up fashion, recipe or interior design tips. Instead, she’ll be focusing on social issues, and possibly highlighting the charitable work she and husband Prince Harry are focusing on.
The Daily Mail claims her column may appear in both American and British editions of the mag. She is already reportedly penning a piece for British Vogue in September, and will be shot in emerging designers who have tie-ins to social causes involving mental health and women’s rights. Famed shutterbug Annie Leibovitz will be taking the pics. She has reportedly requested to not be on the cover.
A source told DailyMail.com: "The spread in Vogue won’t be a superficial photoshoot—on the contrary, she wants to use it as a platform to make a difference. She is working with Vogue as a contributing editor on a few fabulous stories about the causes that are near and dear to her and it may eventually become a regular column."
NO PHOTOS PLEASE
Speaking of photos, eyebrows are being raised over Meghan’s reported request to not have her photo taken in public. At her recent Wimbledon appearance, her security staffers reportedly asked people seated near her to respect her privacy and not take snaps.
Some members of the British media, led by Piers Morgan, are furious. Morgan said: "If you want to be private, go back to America and live privately."
