British Royal Family

Um, Meghan Markle just dropped an F-bomb in front of the whole world... and we nearly missed it

Wait till you hear the context...

Meghan Markle has been known to speak her mind when it comes to causes she is passionate about, even if it involves being a little er... un-royal.
Now, in the latest big move from the passionate Duchess, she's said something that's got the undivided attention of royal fans.
And it's not least because of something we never expected her, let alone any member of the royal family to say so publicly.
In her guest editing debut for the September issue of British Vogue, the Duchess has included a excerpt that has taken us quite by surprise.
Why so, you ask? Well, only because it includes an F-bomb.
Yep, you read that correctly - the Duchess of Sussex, granddaughter-in-law to the Queen and mother to seventh in line to the throne dropped a swear word in one of the most celebrated magazines in the world... and we all nearly missed it.

In her edit of the magazine, Meghan included a poem about body image that she is particularly fond of.
Called "A Note from the Beach" by Matt Haig, the piece is a raw and eye-opening reflection to remind ourselves that we are all enough, no matter what shape or size we are.
Introducing the poem in the magazine, Meghan penned: "A personal favourite and the best reminder during the summer season…or any season, as a matter of fact."
The poem begins: "Hello. I am the beach. I am created by waves and currents. I was made of eroded rocks. I exist next to the sea."
The piece continues to talk about the beach itself, before it goes on: "And I have to tell you something. I don't care about your body. I am a beach. I literally don't give a f—."
We can't argue with that!

The writer of the poem shared the excerpt from the magazine to his Instagram page, writing: "Officially in vogue."
Many shared their love for the writer and his big Vogue moment, taking to the comments section to share their thoughts.
"Dead on you behalf! 💀⚰️🥀 That is amazing!!! Congratulations!" Said one follower.
Another said: "You and the duchess have great taste 💁🏼‍♀️"

The Duchess certainly hasn't shied away from getting frank in her guest edit of the milestone magazine.
She penned an open letter for the mag, reading much like the usual editor's note seen in a number of magazines today.
Meghan explained her intentions behind putting the magazine together, elaborating on her desire to showcase game changers and trailblazers who are progressing modern society for the greater good.
But there was another revelation in the letter no one expected - she was never sought out to edit the September issue. Yep, she had taken it upon herself to ask to do it.
Indeed, the 37-year-old asked the person at the helm of one of the most influential publications in the world to have a hand in creating their biggest issue of the year.
Now that's gutsy!

Revealing that she had asked the editor-in-chief Edward Enninful via text, the Duchess wrote: "I typed and deleted the question several times until I built up the courage to ask the question in question: 'Edward... instead of doing the cover, would you be open to me guest editing your September issue?'"
Enniful naturally replied "yes", explaining in a later interview: "I didn't have to think: I knew the answer was yes. 'We could call it Forces For Change', I said, and the adventure began."
We're sure glad he did, because this particular new issue just keeps getting better!
