UK edition of Vogue Magazine has named the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, among the 25 most influential women working in Britain.
The edition said the 25 are “an extraordinary cast of leaders defining and redefining the way we live now.”
Markle, a new member of the British Royal Family was featured in maiden “Vogue 25” list alongside 24-year-old Black Panther actress Leticia Wright, UK human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney, fashion designer Stella McCartney and Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling, among others.
From a teenager posing outside the palace gates to a grown-up actress marrying one of the princes within them, Vogue said Meghan Markle’s story (and wardrobe) captured the public imagination like no other this year.
“Almost overnight, the 36-year-old has become one of the most recognisable women in the world. But her influence stretches far beyond the ceaseless coverage of her style – as a bi-racial campaigning feminist from America, she is helping to forge a new 21st-century identity for the monarchy,” the edition said.
