To mark its centenary celebration, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is the cover girl of British Vogue’s June edition in a portfolio of seven photographs, including the cover and an accompanying article.
The photographs were shot in the Norfolk countryside by British photographer Josh Olins while the Duchess was styled by Vogue fashion director Lucinda Chambers.
In collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, British Vogue will be displaying two images in the ‘Vogue 100: A Century of Style’ exhibition at the gallery.
Kate has been described as a keen lover of photography and has been a patron of the National Portrait Gallery since 2012. Kensington Palace said the Duchess will visit the gallery on Wednesday to view the two photos.
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 humor, thoughtful and intelligent, and in fact, very beautiful.”
Alexandra Shulman, editor-in-chief of British Vogue, said: “To be able to publish a photographic shoot with the Duchess of Cambridge has been one of my greatest ambitions for the magazine. The collaboration has resulted in 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”.
The fashion magazine will feature other royal portraits including the late Diana, Princess of Wales, who graced the cover four times.
