It’s Official! You can knock Royal Fashion Bloggers over with feathers tonight…(and, no there is not, as yet, any sight of Princess Charlotte’s first birthday portraits)
Instead Kensington Palace and VOGUE yes you read that right VOGUE have released 3 portraits of Catherine and announced that the Duchess will grace the cover of Vogue’s centenary issue.
These portraits are part of a 10 page spread. More from the Vogue Website:
It’s a huge honour and incredibly exciting for us to have HRH The Duchess of Cambridge featuring on the cover of British Vogue and as part of our centenary issue,” Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman said today. “For me personally it has been a wonderful experience to have had the opportunity to work with her on this, and I am immensely proud of what we have produced. This special issue of the magazine is very close to my heart as it had to reflect on 100 years of British Vogue, and so I am hugely grateful that we have been able to continue with our tradition of outstanding royal portraiture with these pictures.”
It was also announced that in her role as Patron (and, one would assume, covergirl) the Duchess of Cambridge will visit the National Portrait gallery on 4 May to view 2 of her portraits which were tonight added to the Vogue : 100 exhibit. The National Portrait Gallery shared this picture of the portraits after they were installed.
We most certainly looking forward to all of Catherine’s engagements on May 4th and will bring all the news as fast as our fingers can get articles ready for the website.
