Did The Queen Put the Kibosh on Kate’s Vogue Spread?

In case you haven’t been paying attention, at all, in the past few months Kate Middleton aka The Duchess of Cambridge, is the fashion world’s newest favorite style icon. Here at Promgirl News we’ve certainly done our part to keep you abreast of any and all developments surrounding the Duchess’s many, and seemingly effortless, contributions to the world of style including recent rumors that none other than Anna Wintour and Mario Testino had teamed up with the goal of getting Kate on the cover of US Vogue.

Unfortunately it seems that we will just have to buy a copy of Photoshop if we want to see a royal Vogue cover, as the Duchess herself has no interest in posing for either the US or UK editions of the mag. According to official palace statements Kate and her new hubby want to focus on charity work instead. However an anonymous palace source told Women’s Wear Daily that Kate’s ‘no thank you’ to Anna Wintour and Co may have more to do with her new grandmother-in-law then with her charitable pursuits.

According to the source “Kate is keenly conscious that her new grandmother-in-law may not chide her for appearing on a Vogue cover. But she would definitely not be amused, and Her Majesty is a real genius at making people squirm with simply a look or a ‘tut, tut.'”

How’s that for a change of pace? A fashion story with Anna Wintour where she is NOT the one making somebody squirm. While it must certainly be nice to be Vogue’s most powerful editor, apparently when it comes to subtly wielding influence even the queen of Vogue can’t compete with with the Queen of England!
