Duchess of Cambridge appears on Vogue cover

The Duchess of Cambridge has followed in Diana, Princess of Wales footsteps and posed for Vogue.


19 years after Diana appeared on the cover, the Duchess has graced the cover of the fashion magazine.

The Duchess' cover was to celebrate Vogue's 100th anniversary, and was the first time that she had allowed a professional make-up artist to work with her.

The photographer was Josh Olins, who took the photographs in a collaboration between Vogue and the National Portrait Gallery, where the photographs are on display.

A spokesman for The Duchess of Cambridge said: “Since 1916, Vogue has been a leading champion of British portraiture. The Duchess was delighted to play a part in celebrating the centenary of an institution that has given a platform to some of the most renowned photographers in this country's history.

“She is incredibly grateful to the team at Vogue and at the National Portrait Gallery for asking her to take part. She would like to thank Josh Olins for being such a pleasure to work with.

"The Duchess had never taken part in a photography shoot like this before. She hopes that people appreciate the portraits with the sense of relaxed fun with which they were taken.”

Alexandra Shulman, editor in chief of British Vogue, said: “To be able to publish a photographic shoot with HRH The Duchess of Cambridge has been one of my greatest ambitions for the magazine.

“I’m delighted the Duchess agreed to work with us and the National Portrait Gallery, and as a result of this unique collaboration we have a true celebration of our centenary as well as a fitting tribute to a young woman whose interest in both photography and the countryside is well known.”

Nicholas Cullinan, director of the National Portrait Gallery, said: “Josh has captured The Duchess exactly as she is – full of life, with a great sense of humour, thoughtful and intelligent, and in fact, very beautiful. We had fun in making and choosing these images, and I hope that comes across.”
