Here’s everything to know…

Meghan Markle has had a difficult few months, from the onslaught of mum shaming and body criticism that she has faced since the arrival of baby Archie to the recent private jet controversy.

But this week, it was the death of her friend, photographer Peter Lindbergh, that made news, with the Duchess of Sussex taking to the Sussex Royal Instagram page to pay tribute.

‘Honouring the life and work of photographer Peter Lindbergh,’ read the tribute, captioning a black and white snap by the photographer and a photo of Meghan and Peter with their arms around each other. ‘His work is revered globally for capturing the essence of a subject and promoting healthy ideals of beauty, eschewing photoshopping, and preferring natural beauty with minimal makeup.’

The post continued: ‘The Duchess of Sussex had worked with Peter in the past and personally chose him to shoot the 15 women on the cover for the September issue of British Vogue, which she guest edited. There is no other photographer she considered to bring this meaningful project to life. “Forces for Change” was the one of the esteemed photographer’s final published projects. He will be deeply missed.’

Our thoughts are with Peter Lindbergh’s loved ones.
