The Duchess of Cambridge can now add cover girl to her resume – Her Royal Highness is featured in the June issue of British Vogue. As part of their centenary celebrations, British Vogue and the National Portrait Gallery collaborated with Kate on a series of portraits.
This is Kate’s first ever magazine shoot, which features eight portraits to be released in the June issue of British Vogue. Three of the portraits were released today, one of which was the cover shot. Two portraits have been added to a new installment at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
The portraits were taken near Sandringham in Norfolk, although it is unclear whether they are near the Queen’s home or Anmer Hall. The photos feature more casual, countryside styles that have the “sense of relaxed fun” that Catherine wanted to share with the world. In the two preview portraits, Catherine is wearing styles from Burberry and Petit Bateau.
The June issue of British Vogue will hit newsstands in the UK and be available for digital download on May 5. US readers can expect copies in their local bookstores around May 12.
