I like the candid as well. Beautiful but accessible. A photo shoot like the one the Monaco couple just did would be inappropriate for these two.

The best part is that they are glowing with happiness. Their smiles reach their eyes. And instead of an overly posed photo, we see the real them for a brief moment. Considering I don't know how much of them we'll ever really get, that's sweet.

Interesting. I remember watching a clip of William and Kate at St. Andrews this past February, and William seemed to want people to address him as 'William'. If I'm not mistaken, he deliberately ignored a person who kept on referring to him as 'Prince William'. Makes me wonder how to address these two when meeting them in person.

On a totally different note, it gives them a down-to-earth touch, which is always welcome in my book.

I really like the Vanity Fair magazine cover, it looks like it was a shot taken without notice, to me it seems the couple just looked up/turned around and it was taken.

I like the photo as well, to me (and some others around here) it isn't "new" but I suppose for most others it is a new one.

And I also remember you posting the link to that picture, ghost_night554. I just visited that link again yesterday

They could have atleast made a better effort in choosing a pic where Kate's face is not so off. It looks like they did a small mirror trick on it and her face is messed up. Aswell as that William's head looks huge in comparison to hers and her shoulder looks like photoshop gone wrong The white with that lightning is horrible aswell.
It could be a well-shot paparazzi pic.

But yeah, besides technical details, they look cute and happy.

Kate (and Diana at 50!) on the cover of Newsweek.

'Newsweek' Speculates How Princess Diana Would Look & Act At 50

I saw this cover on TV recently and had to post it. There are just so many things wrong with this...

That is rather disturbing.

Not sure if the idea for the article is particularly offensive, the tone of it was a bit surprising but apparently the person behind it knew Diana personally. The photo is just badly done. Sure, people do age and technology advances but they still just don't know how to 'age' people and make them look realistic.

It's wrong in all ways. Above all is they made her look like a woman in her 60's with the deep wrinkes and sagging skin. I have no doubt that had Diana lived to 50, she would have looked far better than this.

This picture is more like Diana at 70. I mean - look at Carole Middleton now at 56. Diana would be just as well preserved as that.

If I were Prince William and/or Prince Harry, I would be stark raving mad and demand they pull the article. Unfortunately, that won't happen. Diana just looks freakish and yes... it is super-creepy having Catherine look at Diana like
that. Creeps me out.
