Meghan is named as guest editor of Vogue magazine

She sparked a media frenzy when she was pictured wearing a traditional Maltese ghonella.

And now Meghan has been revealed as the surprise guest editor of Vogue for its bumper September issue.

The Duchess of Sussex, whose great-great-grandmother was born in Malta, will devote sections of the magazine to articles on her favourite charities and issues close to her heart.

Her one-off editing gig has been a closely guarded secret and is seen as a major coup for Edward Enninful, the editor of British Vogue, according to the Daily Mail.

The fashion bible is known for its cutting-edge articles as well as its incredibly expensive clothes.

Meghan, who married Prince Harry at Windsor Castle last year, will be in her element.

Like Prince Harry, Meghan has strong family connections with Malta.

Her great-great-grandmother Mary was born in Valletta in 1862.

In 2015, the former actress spent time in Malta and Gozo – and told 89.7 Bay she ‘really loved it’.

She visited Mdina, Valletta, Victoria and Dwejra during her stay, which included a photoshoot for Elle magazine.

At the time, Meghan said: ‘Coming to Malta has been really important to me because my great-great-grandmother lived here, so we’ve been trying to trace the ancestry.’

She added: ‘Before I came, people were telling me, ‘When you go to Malta, everyone will look like you,’ and I started to say, ‘Oh my gosh I do sort of blend in,’ and it’s the loveliest feeling.

‘The people have been so kind, the food is amazing and the culture. I can’t wait to come back, it’s too short a time.

‘Everything is picturesque. It is a great destination, really special.’

Meghan also got to see the famous Azure Window in Gozo before it collapsed into the sea during a storm in 2017.
