British actress, Jameela Jamil has revealed how Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, called to apologize after her guest stint as editor for British Vogue.
Jamil was one of the 15 influential women profiled in the September issue of the magazine and she says she had no idea the Duchess was going to be editing the magazine.
She claimed that Meghan Markle called her personally to apologize for how secretive the project was and from there they had some girl chat including a cheeky joke about something Jamil said in her role on the Good Place.
Jameela Jamil, who is a body positivity proponent, plays the role of socialite and philanthropist Tahani Al-Jamil in The Good Place and she claimed in one of the episodes that she was the one responsible for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry meeting in the first place.
She claimed that the Duchess had a good laugh about that and even thanked her for setting it up.
Speaking to Grazie magazine, Jamil said: “[Meghan] explained that she’d guest-edited the issue, and apologised that the whole thing had been shrouded in so much secrecy… I had never met her before but we chatted openly. She told me how important gender equality was to her.”
The duchess’ stint as guest editor for British Vogue has been hailed by many especially with the Magazine’s message of equality and celebrating women, however, there are those who feel that Meghan Markle is not the right voice for female equality.
An opinion piece on the Irish Times highlights this as the writer pointed out that Meghan Markle’s role as a part of the royal family which is notoriously conservative in its views, puts her at odds with the progressive message she is trying to put out there and that this makes the magazine’s message seem muddled and confused.
