Duchess of Cambridge on Vogue cover

A British princess has made her debut as a model on the front cover of the fashion magazine Vogue. Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, posed for seven photographs for the 100-year anniversary of the world-famous style magazine. The publication's June issue will feature the photographs of the 34-year-old royal. They were taken by the eminent British photographer Josh Olins in January in the English countryside. Two of the pictures will also go on display at Britain's National Portrait Gallery in London in an exhibition called Vogue 100. By choosing British Vogue for her first ever cover, Kate is following in the footsteps of her mother-in-law. Princess Diana graced the cover of the magazine four times.

A spokesman for the duchess spoke about Kate's happiness at appearing in the magazine. He said: "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." He added: "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." Mr Olins spoke about the photo shoot. He said: "This was the duchess's first sitting for a magazine and she was a joy to work with. A natural."
