Editor of the British edition of Vogue, Edward Enninful said: ‘If you had told me at the beginning of the year that Vogue’s July cover stars would cover three frontline staff workers I might not have believed you.”

‘I can think of no more appropriate trio of women to represent the millions of people in the UK who, at the height of the pandemic, in the face of dangers large and small, put on their uniforms and work clothes and went to help people.’

It comes in light of Princess Sofia of Sweden and an Oxford University doctor who is leading the coronavirus vaccine race have been named as among Vogue’s first Forces For Change.

You can catch up with the whole story in the July edition of British Vogue, which is available on digital download from this coming Friday.
