Meghan Markle, who served as a guest editor for an upcoming issue of British Vogue, has faced quite a bit of criticism for her editorial choices. The September cover, which features 15 "women she admires," notably left out one very important figure, Queen Elizabeth II. Instead, the lineup includes other celebrities, activists, and politicians, thereby excluding doctors, lawyers, teachers, and nurses from the list. 

Even though the royal turned down the offer to be on the cover herself as to not appear too "boastful," those she did choose to feature inspired several commentators to speak out against the Duchess. According to Daily Mail, the choices inspired critics to speak out against the Duchess of Sussex for "involving herself in politics" and "considering herself more of an A lister than a member of the royal family."

After it was revealed that Meghan included a conversation with former first lady Michelle Obama in the piece yet did not meet U.S. President Trump on his recent visit, royal commentator Rob Jobson told Sky News that she needs to be "quite careful."

"You've got to be very careful not to be partisan, and I think that whilst you are using it as a force of good, you have just got to be a little bit careful on the politics side," he said.

Author and broadcaster Bobby Friedman echoed those sentiments when he told Sky News that "... the impression you get with Meghan Markle at the moment, unfortunately, is that she doesn't want to do the hard yard," adding, "She is happy turning up at London fashion week, she is happy going on the stage of 'Hamilton.'"

Continuing, he added, "She is politicising the royal family and I think that goes too far and is unwise."

Compounding onto the idea that the royals should stray away from political discourse, royal commentator Dickie Arbiter told Mail Online that they should "tread carefully" when it comes to the topic, adding, "It's a very fine line."
