Meghan Markle’s British Vogue September Issue is Selling on eBay at a Much Higher Price
From being a briefcase girl in the American game show Deal or No Deal, to becoming a member of the British royal family, Meghan Markle has definitely inspired many women across the globe. And the magazine company, British Vogue is honored to let the Duchess of Sussex guest-edit their September issue featuring fifteen powerful women that Markle hand-picked herself.
Promoting female empowerment, Markle selected fifteen celebrities to be on the cover of the prestigious magazine. Although the publication’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful wanted the royalty to appear on the cover as well, Markle refused and gave the spotlight to her personal inspirations instead.
They equally divided the magazine’s front cover with sixteen boxes with fifteen recognizable faces in each including one empty space. Markle said the reader was meant to fill the blank space to encourage them to be part of her campaign to make a change through every little way possible.
The former actress devoted seven months of her life to this project. The issue, entitled Forces for Change, includes a heart-to-heart talk between the former US First Lady, Michelle Obama and the Duchess of Sussex herself. Markle hopes to inspire the readers to follow the path that these fifteen women have taken. She also acknowledged the team who helped her bring light to the prestigious project.
With its success, fans are reportedly re-selling the issue on eBay at a much higher price. It originally sold at only $5 in the UK stores. However, some people listed the magazine seven times higher than its original asking price. Some sellers listed it for $38.38, while others put a $36 price tag on it.
Positive and Negative Perception
The publication has received numerous acclaims from the public after the photographer Peter Lindberg revealed in an interview that Markle specifically instructed him not to remove the freckles of any featured women on the photographs.
But, not everyone gave a positive comment about Megha’s work. Some critics have accused Markle of copying the concept of Samantha Brett and Steph Adams’ book The Game Changers. The Duchess of Sussex appeared on the cover of the aforementioned book alongside many other female celebrities.
Vogue’s spokesperson falsified the accusations and clarified that they based the theme of the cover on Vogue’s January 1990 issue, which follows a similar concept. The magazine company also said that the mastermind behind the remarkable idea was their editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, and not the Duchess of Sussex.
Meanwhile, the author Samantha Brett said she was flattered that Markle loved their concept, but would be extremely disappointed if proven that the rumors were true. But if they would have a parallel vision of donating the proceeds to charity, she might be okay with it, she added.
