The magazine’s cover features 15 women whom the duchess “admires,” coming from activism, politics, sports, Hollywood and beyond.

The women include models Adwoa Aboah and Adut Akech Bior, boxer Ramla Ali, New Zealand Prime Minister and Jacinda Ardern, Sinead Burke, Gemma Chan, Laverne Cox, Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek, Royal Ballet dancer Frankie Hayward, Jameela Jamil, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Yara Shahidi, Greta Thunberg and Christy Turlington.

Laverne Cox, boxer Ramla Ali and actor Gemma Chan have reacted to being featured on the cover of British Vogue's September issue, guest edited by the Duchess of Sussex.
