Inside, it will contain an articles from Afua Hirsch, Daisy Goodwin and Tina Brown on the significance of the marriage and the meaning of Markle’s place in the royal family as a representation of unprecedented diversity and multiculturalism.

TIME has a long history of covering royal weddings, having reported on them since the publication was launched. Prince William and Kate Middleton were featured on a cover of their own following their nuptials in 2011.

The U.S. has had a particular affinity for royal wedding celebrations, with roughly 29 million viewers around the country tuning in to watch the prince and Markle tie the knot last Saturday.
