Meghan Markle who has worked hard for the last seven months as the guest editor of British Vogue has revealed the first look of her September’s edition. However, despite the Duchess’s hard work and extraordinary vision, she’s being criticized yet again.

This time critics have opened fire on former Hollywood star for not including her grandmother in law Queen Elizabeth among the 15 women featured on the magazine’s cover.

“Why isn’t HM The Queen included on the cover of September’s Vogue? Her Majesty is the perfect role model: like many of us she had no choice but to do the job she was given. The ultimate in grace & discretion for 70+ years,” said a Twitter user.

“Pathetic front page. Where are doctors, scientists, teachers. Why a child climate change activist who should be in school? Where is Her Majesty the Queen? #vogue #Meghan #duchessofsussex #selfindulgent,” wrote another critic on Twitter.

Meghan’s strong critic and journalist Dan Wootton stated that the Queen would be perceive the Duchess’s attempt idiotic.

“Why would we swim in the shallow end of the pool when we could go to the deep end? A metaphor for life, as well as for this issue. Let’s be braver. Let’s go a bit deeper.” #DuchessMeghan is making waves as the guest-editor of the iconic September issue of #Vogue.

“Remember Meghan doesn’t want to be a celebrity, she says she wants to be a royal. Royals don’t guest edit magazines, celebrities guest edit magazines. Do you get me? Do you see the point that I’m making?” said Dan as he dubbed Meghan’s involvement with the magazine an idiotic decision.

POLÊMICA CONTINUA! A participação de #MeghanMarkle como editora (função de quem decide o que entra na revista) da #Vogue está dando o que falar. Em entrevista para a TV o especialista na realeza Dan Wootton manifestou sua opinião sobre o trabalho de #MeghanMarkle na Vogue britânica de setembro. Dan não aprovou e acredita que a rainha não aprovará a decisão da esposa do #principeHarry. Durante a entrevista Dan comentou: "A rainha vai achar que essa é uma decisão ridícula e absolutamente idiota, assim como eu". Ele continuou: "Lembre-se de que Meghan diz que não quer ser uma celebridade, ela disse que quer ser da realeza. Mas a realeza não publica revistas, celebridades é que são convidas a editar revistas.” Dan não para e completou: "Eu sinto que preciso trazer um pouco de realidade para a situação. A revista Vogue é provavelmente a mais dispendiosa e esnobe de todas as revistas, dominada pela moda e pela magreza em todo o mundo" E continuou: "Essa revista não é e nunca foi uma grande força convencional para o bem, esta é uma revista de moda para a elite". Além disso, Wootton discordou do tempo que Markle dedicou à questão observando: "O fato de Meghan ter escolhido dedicar sete meses de seu trabalho como duquesa para trabalhar na Vogue, acho que isso merece uma reflexão". Sobre o fato de Meghan não ter sequer citado na edição a própria #rainhaElizabeth ou #KateMiddleton e a defesa de alguns fãs de que Meghan escolheu pessoas desconhecidas, Dan rebateu, “desde quando #MicheleObama, #JaneFonda e #SalmaHayek são desconhecidas?”. Outro especialista na realeza Phil Dampier disse que a rainha deve aproveitar o período em Balmoral para conversar com Meghan. Ele declarou “esta pode ser uma boa oportunidade para a rainha ter, não uma avaliação de Meghan, mas uma conversa tranquila longe das multidões enlouquecidas sobre como ela pensa que está indo”. E completou que “várias coisas poderiam ter sido feitas de forma melhor”. A polêmica continua… O que vocês acham? (Confira outros posts e marque aqui quem você acha que vai gostar do nosso perfil!)

The women featured on British Vogue’s September edition titled ‘Forces for Change’ will include actress Salma Hayek, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacenda Ardern, climate activist Greta Thunberg and youth activist Yara Shahidi among other influential women.

Editor in chief of Vogue British chapter had earlier reflected upon Meghan’s decision to opt out of cover page as this, “In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project. She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires.”
