Kate Middleton and Prince William Cover Vanity Fair

By

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).
