1- Meghan Markle's Vogue issue about 'trailblazing' women has a VERY similar cover to an Australian book the Duchess helped produce (and the authors aren't happy)
Meghan Markle's Vogue issue about 'trailblazing' women

The first issue of UK Vogue to be guest-edited by Meghan Markle appears remarkably similar to an Australian book about inspiring women which the Duchess of Sussex helped produce.

The duchess wrote an essay for 'The Game Changers' by Samantha Brett and Steph Adams three years before she helped edit the identically-themed Vogue issue 'Forces for Change'.

Both publications feature 15 back and white photographs of trail-blazing women on the cover.

Brett, who is a journalist with the Seven Network and a social commentator, told Daily Mail Australia she was stunned when she saw the Vogue cover on Monday.

'It's obviously very flattering, she obviously likes our concept!' she said.

2- 'Of all the women she did NOT choose the Queen!' Meghan faces backlash over 'trailblazers' Vogue cover she worked on during maternity leave as royal watchers warn her to keep out of politics

The Duchess of Sussex has today faced a backlash for featuring the 15 'women she admires' on the September issue of British Vogue.

The line-up of women she admires includes celebrities, politicians and activists known for championing issues such as diversity, body positivity, transgender rights and climate change.

But the 37-year-old, who gave birth to son Archie in May, has been slammed by critics for failing to include the Queen in the magazine and for ignoring nurses, doctors, lawyers and teachers on the cover.

Brexit MEP Ann Widdecombe told the Sun: 'Royals have not only got to keep out of politics but they have got to be seen to keep out of politics.'

Critics have also hit out at Meghan for promoting her friends and 'involving herself in politics'. Ingrid Seward of Majesty magazine told the Sun: 'The Duchess of Sussex has done a huge favour for the House of Conde Naste and rather less for the House of Windsor'.

The duchess, a former actress and avowed feminist, had initially been asked to appear on the cover herself. But Vogue's editor-in-chief Edward Enninful said Meghan refused as she thought it would appear too 'boastful'.

3- Somali-born boxer who features on Meghan Markle's Vogue cover fled civil war before becoming a British champion - and kept her sport a secret from her strict Muslim family
Somali boxer Ramla Ali has been a fighter all her life.

Somali boxer Ramla Ali has been a fighter all her life.

Having fled her home country's civil war as a toddler, the 20-something - she doesn't know her exact age - went on to become a British champion, having kept her talent a secret from her Muslim parents for many years.

Yesterday it was revealed she is among the 15 inspirational women handpicked by the Duchess of Sussex to feature on her Forces for Change Vogue front cover in the September edition, which she has guest-edited.

Ramla escaped from her hometown Mogadishu, the country's capital, in the early 1990s - the morning after her elder brother, 12, was killed by a mortar while playing in their garden during the civil war. 


Meghan Markle's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. thinks the Queen should step in and resolve their family feud.

Thomas Markle Jr. also claims Doria Ragland barely sees Meghan: “She gets a day here, a day there… that’s about it."

Today in news that will cause you to spit out your coffee and lol, Meghan Markle's half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. is out here asking the Queen to step in and resolve their family feud. Oh, and he's claiming that Meghan's gonna cut off her mom next. Which, sure, okay Thomas!

Thomas, who currently works as a window fitter and hasn't spoken to Meghan in years, felt the need to tell The Daily Mirror that he thinks “the Queen should step in and tell Meghan to make amends with her father and family." Oh, and if the Queen won't do it, Prince Charles should "step in and say, ‘Something’s not right.’ They should force her into this, or it’s just going to continue to cause problems in her life.”

Interestingly/hilariously, Thomas seems to think Meghan's mom Doria is about to be frozen out: “She gets a day here, a day there… that’s about it. That’s probably the next relationship that’s going to fall off the map.” Judging from this photo, that seems far from the truth:


It's been less than 24 hours since Meghan Markle revealed the cover of the British Vogue issue she guest-edited, and there's already controversy afoot. On Monday morning, authors Samantha Brett and Steph Adams accused the duchess of ripping off the cover of their book The Game Changers, in which Meghan was a part of production.

Meghan, who was featured on the cover and personally approved the concept, wrote an essay for the book's release nearly three years ago. And there's no denying the similarities between the two titles, as both covers adopt a grid format with black and white photos of fifteen successful women inspiring change.
