Meghan Markle takes center stage in a glossy photoshoot celebrating global leaders in Vanity Fair magazine.
The Suits actress, who is dating British royal Prince Harry, appears in the April (17) edition of Vanity Fair magazine as part of a line-up of 'global leaders' who attended the One Young World Summit in Ottawa, Canada in September, 2016.
Meghan appears in a portrait with the former President of Ireland Mary Robinson, poet Fatima Bhutto, and women's rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul.
Dressed in a white dress and a pair of nude heels, the 35-year-old is set apart from the three other women in the portrait, posing on the banks of the Ottawa River, in the country where she first met her Prince.
The British royal and the actress first met in May (16) when he was in Toronto, Canada promoting the 2017 Invictus Games and he confirmed their relationship in November (16).
It is Meghan's first official photoshoot since the announcement of her royal romance to the Prince, whose late mother Princess Diana, regularly featured in the magazine.
Emma Watson, Cher, and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, all of whom spoke at the 2016 Summit, are also pictured in the photoshoot by American photographer Jason Schmidt.
In an essay on her lifestyle website, The Tig, Meghan previously wrote about being asked to join One Young World.
"When I was asked to be a Counselor at One Young World my response was a resounding 'yes,'" she wrote.
She has also spoken of her desire to put her fame to good use in an essay for Elle UK.
“With fame comes opportunity, but it also includes responsibility - to advocate and share, to focus less on glass slippers and more on pushing through glass ceilings. And, if I’m lucky enough, to inspire,” she wrote.
