British Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful wrote in his editor's letter: "When I received my OBE for services to diversity in fashion several years ago, I thought carefully about what the decision to accept it would mean.
"Ultimately, I saw an ancient institution that was setting about on a programme of change and if they had noticed and wanted to recognise my work as something worth spotlighting, given the fact my endeavours were all about spotlighting under-represented people too, then I felt comfortable – keen, even – to engage."
This isn't the first time the Queen has appeared in Vogue. She was also featured sat on her mother's lap in a photo taken in 1927 when she was one.
