Meghan Markle reveals behind the scenes footage of her Vogue cover

The Duchess is seen working behind the camera with the Vogue team and cover stars while pregnant. 

Following the reveal of Meghan Markle's Vogue September cover she's guest editing, the Sussex Royal instagram page has shared a behind the scenes video of the Duchess shooting the cover, while she was pregnant with her son, Archie. 

Filmed in black and white, the video captures the cover stars speaking directly to the camera revealing the names of the women who inspire their force for change, while Meghan Markle looks on the camera screen.

The cover stars speak of the message behind the Vogue cover, with Laverne Cox beginning the voice over:

"We are at a crossroads in the world right now," the actress says. "The decisions that we make in every country around the world about how we're going to treat women, how we're going to treat immigrants, how we're going to treat trans people and people of colour, how we treat our planet."

While the cover stars announce the women who inspire them, New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern eloquently delivers a message that resonates on a global scale:

“One change that I’ve noticed over the course of my career, is just how polarised the world is now. I do think there is a solution to that though, and that’s ultimately us coming back to the humanity that we all share," she says. 

The video follows the release of the magazine cover Meghan Markle shared yesterday, titled Force for Change -  with 15 square images of prolific women covering the magazine, with one square left as a mirror in hopes that the reader will see themsleves too, as empowered.
