Enniful was in "constant contact" with Meghan using WhatsApp as he watched the duchess's chat with Oprah, the Daily Mail reported.

A source close told the paper: "There were around 15 people on the Zoom, all top Conde Nast people.

"They felt it was important from an editorial perspective that they got together to watch it."

The source said the video link was set up by Conde Nast communication director Emily Hallie's parents in Florida, who put their laptop in front of their TV and shared the interview on Zoom.

They said: "We kept having to restart new sessions. It was hilarious, but actually it was quite a serious screening for the editors. Edward was supposedly texting Meghan throughout."

Meghan guest edited the September issue of British Vogue in 2019 – but left herself off the cover over fears she’d look “boastful”.

She chose to instead focus on 15 women who “break barriers” and the duchess hoped that readers would also be inspired by their work.

At the time, Enninful spoke of the Duchess of Sussex’s decision to leave herself off the cover – unlike Kate Middleton, 37, when she appeared in the magazine in June 2016.

He said: “From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a 'boastful' thing to do for this particular project.

"She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires."

Enninful was appointed as British Vogue’s first male editor four years ago.

Born in Ghana, he moved to the UK as a boy and started his fashion career aged 16 when he was scouted as a model on a train.

He was given an OBE in 2016 by the Queen for services to diversity in the fashion industry.
