Meghan Markle recently guest edited the September issue of British Vogue to the delight of royal fans. However, the job started off with a bit of confusion due to a "brave text."

According to Express, the Duchess of Sussex landed the position with editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, who has acted as head of the magazine since June 2017, thanks to a cold email that she sent to him in January. Not only did the royal contact him for a meeting, but also to suggest the idea of her serving as a guest editor for the fashion magazine.

However, due to Meghan's use of a mysterious name, Enninful was unsure who he was speaking to at the very beginning of their interaction.

In his editor's letter for the September issue, he wrote, "I was spending a few days in the Austrian mountains when a message arrived in my inbox out of the blue."

Continuing, he said, "The sender went by the simplest of monikers - 'M' - and for a second I was confused, wondering who this mysterious, one-lettered correspondent could possibly be."

Additionally, it is said that the Duchess eventually convinced him to "take a chance" on her after she "built up the courage" to ask him if he would be open to the idea of allowing her to take directorial control, per Express.

For her part, Meghan revealed in her own letter that by the end of the meeting they were texting each other and "philosophizing about how to communicate this shared understanding and the lens through which we see the world, how to pivot from a perspective of frustration to one of optimism."

Her involvement with the publication has not been an easy one, though. After it hit newsstands, she received criticism for not including Queen Elizabeth II on her list of women she admires. She was also advised to stay out of politics as continuing down that path could be "unwise."
