Diana and Katie Photographed together!!

US magazine imagines Diana at 50 with Kate by her side

The latest issue of US magazine Newsweek has Princess Diana and Kate Middleton on the cover – and the images have been digitally altered to show Diana as she might look if she was alive today.

The cover feature, titled ‘Diana at 50′, is written by British journalist Tina Brown, who is editor-in-chief of the magazine.

In the article the writer imagines that Princess Diana would now be Facebook friends with Camilla Parker-Bowles, would have an ‘it’s complicated’ relationship status and would have 10 million Twitter followers.

The cover image of Diana, which has been digitally aged, shows her still looking slim and toned, with few visible wrinkles.

Despite initially feeling threatened by her new daughter-in-law, Tina Brown says that Diana would be good friends with Kate.

She says: “The rising public adoration of Kate would have afforded Diana some tricky moments. Diana would have had to adjust to a broadening of the limelight. “

Tina Brown also claims that Diana would be living in New York, after having married two more times. She believes that she would have dumped Dodi Fayed, the boyfriend who died with her in the August 1997 car crash.

She claims that the Princess would still be a fashion icon and would have a good relationship with Prince Charles and Carole Middleton, William’s mother-in-law.

Ms Brown, who also write the book The Diana Chronicles, says: “I believe her best male friend in later years would have been, poignantly, her reviled first husband.

“As the financier Sir James Goldsmith once put it: ‘When you marry your mistress, you create a job vacancy’, and Charles, having married Camilla would suddenly have found the company of his ex strangely comforting.

“Diana, with time, would no longer have found Charles’s causes tiresome.

“Rather, she would have empathised and asked his advice about hers.”

She also believes that Diana would have made peace with Camilla.

Diana’s Dresses Fetch 2 Million at auction!

In the last couple of months we’ve seen some of Kate Middleton’s favourite dresses selling for two or three times the price on eBay.

But yesterday a collection of 14 dresses belonging to her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, were sold at an auction in Canada, fetching a grand total of more than £2 million and proving that she’s still a fashion icon, 14 years after her death.

The dresses were sold by an American, Maureen Rorech Dunkel, who bought them for £420,000 at a Christie’s auction in June 1997, two months before Diana’s death. At the time the princess was selling them to raise money for Aids and cancer charities.

Mss Dunkel, a Florida-based entrepreneur who filed for bankruptcy last year, left the room in tears before the auction began.

The dresses went for more than £2 million in just 25 minutes; a midnight blue gown that she wore to dance with John Travolta in 1985 attracted the highest bids and was sold for £510,000.


A cream silk gown which she wore for a Mario Testino photoshoot sold for almost £160,000 and a burgundy velvet dress and tailcoat that she wore to a film premiere in 1990 was auctioned for £130,000.

Experts had predicted that the dresses would fetch more, but that still sounds like an impressive amount to us.

Maybe we should try to pick up a couple of Kate’s high-street dresses while we’ve got the chance. Who knows what they’ll be worth in 20 years?

Everybody wants to dress like katie…. Tesco to sell copy of dress for only £30!
