The print editors of fashion glossies were supposed to be having a major hissy backstabbing
fight war over who would get Kate Middleton for a cover shoot first. Well, Vanity Fair conveniently sidestepped the problem of having to shoot her again and will cover the July issue with an unseen photo of the royal couple from Mario Testino's engagement-portrait session, perhaps distinct only in that it lacks that Sears Photo Center softness of the previously released images. The accompanying article just might be juicier than any previously published on the couple, including details on who does the chores in their home (not servants, that much we know).
And, according to the Daily Mail:
It describes the pair’s giggles as they watched their nuptials back on television, and recounts the moment Michael Middleton realised the relationship was serious - when Prince William arrived at his Berkshire home by helicopter.
It also recalls the rather surprising requests the pair had for their honeymoon suite - including Philadelphia cream cheese and Brussel sprouts.
Testino told reporters at the El Museo gala honoring him last week, "I am interested in working with down-to-earth, real people." Who fly helicopters and, in addition to fruitcake, enjoy spreadable cheese and mini cabbages.
