‘Flashy royal responsibilities’ Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are included in Vogue’s Top 25 list of powerful women.
MEGHAN MARKLE and Kate Middelton were named to Vogue’s Top 25 list of important women this year.
The Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge, 40 and 39 years old, respectively, won the top honor for their charitable work and clout.
Previously, the magazine had only chosen one member of the Royal Family to feature, making this a first for the fashion title.
The Duchess of Sussex has previously been named to Vogue’s prestigious list, with the publication describing her as “a bi-racial campaigning feminist from America” who is “trying to establish a new 21st-century identity for the monarchy” in 2018.
She appeared on the list for two years in a row before being left off in 2020.
The Duchess of Cambridge, on the other hand, was first on the list this year.
“With the flashier end of royal duties mostly on pause during lockdown,” the magazine noted, “her charity work, rather than her fashion choices, drew the majority of headlines.”
According to Vogue, Kate has enjoyed a “stealthy ascent” in popularity at the firm.
Vogue acknowledged Meghan’s several endeavors over the past year while announcing her inclusion on the list.
In addition to her enormous philanthropic efforts, she signed Netflix and Spotify deals and created a children’s book, all with the common goal of encouraging equality, according to Vogue.
“What will she do next?” says the narrator.
The Duchess of Sussex has taken on a number of projects and, in June, published a children’s book titled The Bench.
The Duchess of Sussex announced her new project, 40×40, earlier this week, inviting people to contribute time to help women who have been affected by the pandemic get back to work.
“Because I’m turning 40, I’m asking 40 friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help mentor a woman who’s reentering the workforce,” Meghan explained.
“Covid has resulted in the job loss of almost 2,000,000 women in the United States alone, as well as tens of millions around the world.
“I believe that if we all do it and commit 40 minutes to active service, we can generate a ripple effect.”
Fashion designers Vivienne Westwood and Priya Ahluwalia, as well as Soma Sara, the creator of Everyone’s Invited, are among the other powerful women.
Everyone’s Invited was developed to let women and men to anonymously share their stories of sexual assault.
