The Queen Would Not Be Amused If Catherine Covered Vogue

So I think everyone knows that Anna Wintour wants (and really wants) Kate Middleton to cover Vogue. She even went to Mario Testino (the official royal wedding photographer) to convince Kate to cover Vogue. But, still Kate is adamant.

And she has a pretty good reason.
Queen Elizabeth may approve of her grandson's wife, but seeing her on a Vogue cover? Not so much.
According to a palace insider, Kate Middleton knows very well that Her Majesty would find nothing amusing about the Duchess dressing up in couture just so Anna Wintour could make a quick buck.
"Kate is keenly conscious that while 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.' "
The royal sourcery went on to add:
"Both William and Kate are free to be interviewed or photographed by whoever they choose…But both William and Kate feel it would be wrong for Kate to promote herself as a fashion or style icon. That's not what they are about and they take their royal duties far too seriously to, in one sense, trivialize them."
We think that's a very noble and wise decision on their part.

Oh well, you can always have attention whore Michelle Obama cover Vogue again. Ha!
