For those of you who thought we were finally done with royal couple coverage, we’ve got bad news. And for those of you who (like us!) still can’t get enough, we’ve got great news. Kate Middleton, er, Princess Catherine, er, the Duchess of Cambridge and her hubby Prince William are set to appear on the July cover of Vanity Fair.
The cover was shot by — who else? — Mario Testino and is actually an image saved from the engagement portraits he shot back in December. And completely uncoincidentally, Kate and Will’s cover comes exactly fourteen years after the magazine published Princess Diana’s now famous spread by Testino as well. The issue is also timed to hit newsstands just ahead of the couple’s visit to Los Angeles in July.
There’s no word of what the accompanying article will entail, but the New York Post reports that “the spread will also include shots of Diana, Prince Charles and Prince Harry.” Wait, what about Pippa?!
Anyway, here’s hoping there will be plenty of Harry, because with all this wedding brouhaha, we’re starting to feel like the younger prince has been flying way too under the radar. Can we get a good party scandal, please?
This is Diana’s cover from July 1997:
