Kate Middleton Newsweek Cover Features Ghost of Princess Diana
Weird Photoshopped Princess Diana/Kate Middleton Newsweek Cover
We're going to describe the Newsweek cover that features Kate Middleton and a photoshopped image of an aged Princess Diana as "questionable". That's being generous, by the way. Another way of describing the Princess Diana Newsweek cover would be "tasteless".
The feature article is "Diana at 50", is accompanied by an artist's rendering of what a 50-year-old Princess Di would look like, and the effect is just stilted and a bit creepy. There's no life to it, though they though to have the digital ghost of Princess Di clutching a white iPhone. That's meant to symbolize nowness, one suspects.
We can't help what Kate Middleton's behind-closed-doors reaction will be when she sees this... and she will see it, if she hasn't already.
The Observer implies that Tina Brown is obsessed with Kate Middleton; we don't know about that, since of course Newsweek would focus on the royals during the Royal Wedding, and Newsweek was not the only publication to have a commemorative issue.
The article itself is fairly unchallenging: to wit, Tina Brown posits that Princess Diana would just keep on keeping on, begrudgingly giving up the limelight to Kate Middleton and becoming friends with Prince Charles once again. The photo, though, will get everyone talking... for the wrong reasons.
