British Vogue EIC Edward Enninful decided to celebrate the success of the September issue — the fastest-selling issue in the history of British Vogue — by releasing a previously unseen clip featuring himself and Markle discussing the issue and taking the honorees Laverne Cox, Jane Fonda, and Yara Shahidi by surprise with unexpected phone calls from the Dutchess.
“Oh my god,” Cox is heard saying in the new audio. “Oh my god, hi!”
“Just know that we are so, so proud that you’re on the cover with everything you represent,” Markle told the “Orange is the New Black” actress. “You’re a true force for change.”
The former “Suits” actress then reached out to “Grown-ish” star Shahidi, telling the 20-year-old “I kid you not, the very first name that I said I wanted on the cover was you.”
As for Fonda, the “Grace & Frankie” star and political activist gushed over Markle’s commitment to the greater good, telling the wife and mom, “Meghan, I’m so proud of you for using your amazing platform and your strong voice. And I’m so honored to be a part of it with all those other amazing women. Thank you so much for including me.”
All calls took place in London back in August 2019.
