AceShowbiz - Anna Wintour returns to another episode of her new YouTube video series called "Go Ask Anna". In the new footage, which was released on Tuesday, January 22, the Vogue editor-in-chief talks about wide-ranging topics including Meghan Markle.
A fan asks the fashion's powerhouse, "Anna, I'm dying to know what you think of Meghan Markle." Responding to the question, the 69-year-old says, "I read somewhere that there were members of the royal household that were confused and upset that she woke up so early at 5 A.M. She's a normal, California girl -- gets up early and does yoga and meditates," she said.
"And [she] also sent a lot of text messages. I mean, what do they expect? She was going to send messages by pigeon?" she continues. "I think she's amazing."
Anna was referring to rumors saying that the Duchess of Sussex's strong work ethic was too formidable that it rubbed Palace staff the wrong way. "It is said palace staff have never experienced anything remotely like Meghan's formidable work ethic, matched only by the incessant stream of ideas about how to shape her role," the report stated.
The staff allegedly understood that Meghan was just being enthustiastic, but her "up and at 'em West Coast energy is an uncomfortable fit with the more formal ethos of some of the palace staff."
In addition to commenting on Meghan's alleged intense work ethic, Anna shares her opinion on the royal's Givenchy wedding dress, which was designed by Clare Waight Keller, during her May 2018 nuptials. "The royal wedding had the whole world watching and I think that her choice was brilliant," Anna said. "It was sophisticated. It was chic. It was grown-up. It was an English designer, albeit one that was working for a French house, which in a way was a message to the world: Yes, I'm from somewhere else, but I belong."
Anna went on gushing, "The fact that she chose to walk down the aisle by herself, I also thought spoke for an independent woman. She went on explaining, "I think the picture of the Duchess of Sussex's mother [Doria Ragland] at the chapel at the wedding was so inspiring to so many women, men all over the world."
