Princess Diana once turned down a prestigious fashion honor that her daughter-in-law Meghan Markle actively sought out 23 years later, according to an archive letter recently revealed by a former British Vogue editor.
Alexandra Shulman, the editor-in-chief of the British edition of Vogue from 1992 to 2017, took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a photograph of a letter sent to her by Diana in 1996, turning down the personal invitation to guest edit an issue of the magazine.
Meghan Markle would go on to ask editor Edward Enninful if he would consider allowing her to guest edit the magazine’s September 2019 issue, which became the fastest-selling issue in its 103-year history.
“Dear Alexandra, thank you so much for inviting me to be the guest editor of the Christmas edition of British Vogue,” Diana wrote to Shulman from Kensington Palace on June 17, 1996.
“I am enormously touched to have been asked but as I know I could never emulate your mastery of this job I think it would be best (for everybody!) if I decline.
“Thank you again for taking what must have been a very brave decision to invite me! With best wishes, Yours sincerely, Diana.”
The invitation to the princess came at an important time in her personal life.
