The September issue of British Vogue will feature Rihanna on the cover – the first time a black woman has featured on the front.
But turn the page and the magazine will feature a rather royal display.
Princess Eugenie, who gets married to Jack Brooksbank, in October this year, and her sister Princess Beatrice have been interviewed for the September issue of British Vogue.
The royal sisters give an insight into their work and relationship as sisters.
Editor Edward Enninful wrote in the editor’s letter: “Essentially, we are taking you on a journey – from our offices in central London, where I invited Bajan superstar Rihanna earlier this summer to talk diva-don and diversity, to Royal Lodge in Windsor, where Princess Beatrice and Eugenie welcome Vogue into the heart of the Royal Family.”
The royal sisters were photographed by Alex Bramall at The Duke of York’s home, the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
This is not the first time the British magazine has featured members of the royal family.
In June 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge appeared on the cover of British Vogue for the magazine’s 100th anniversary special issue.
She was photographed by Josh Olins in the Norfolk countryside and appeared in a 10-page shoot within the June issue.
Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman said at the time: “It’s a huge honour and incredibly exciting for us to have HRH The Duchess of Cambridge featuring on the cover of British Vogue and as part of our centenary issue.”
Referring to growing up in the public eye, Beatrice told the magazine: “It’s hard to navigate situations like these because there is no precent, there is no protocol.
“We are the first. We are young women trying to build careers and have personal lives, and we’re also princesses and doing all of this in the public eye.”
Eugenie said she wanted to show people they are “working, young, royal women” who are not “afraid of putting ourselves out there.”
The 28-year-old said: “Nowadays it’s so easy to recoil when you see a perfect image on Instagram – but it’s important that it’s real. We’re real.”
The York sisters will not be the first to grace the covers of the high fashion magazine.
Princess Anne appeared on three Vogue covers in 1971 and 1973, while Princess Diana appeared on four Vogue covers in August 1981, December 1991, July 1994 and posthumously in October 1997.
British Vogue is also not the first time the York sisters have appeared in fashion magazines, according to Royal Central.
Princess Eugenie and Beatrice have been on the covers of Tatler magazine in different months.
Eugenie was also featured in the September 2016 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, having allowed the magazine to follow her around on a day in her life.
