Kate Middleton graces the cover of Vogue

The royal icon stuns on the front cover of the fashion magazine
Duchess Catherine and Prince William

The glamorous pair stunned when they attended the ARK 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner in London in 2011.

Duchess Catherine looks right at home on the June issue of British Vogue.

The cover shot is perhaps the most striking as it shows the mother-of-two in a khaki fedora, relaxed and smiling – her famous engagement ring sparkling just as bright as her radiant smile.

In another image, Catherine looks at ease in a striped red top.

The stunning photographs, which have been released in collaboration with The National Portrait Gallery, are to commemorate the centenary issue of the glossy and the full shoot will be available when the new issue goes on sale on Thursday, May 5.

The images were taken by revered photographer Josh Olins in Norfolk and shared on The Royal Family’s Facebook page over the weekend.

A spokesperson for the 34-year-old explained Catherine loved the shoot: “The Duchess was delighted to play a part in celebrating the centenary of an institution that has given a platform to some of the most renowned photographers in this country’s history.”

“The Duchess had never taken part in a photography shoot like this before. She hopes that people appreciate the portraits with the sense of relaxed fun with which they were taken.”
