As though this needed to be confirmed by an anonymous source connected to the palace, E! got someone to say that the queen wouldn't be happy with Kate Middleton appearing on the cover of Vogue. "Kate is keenly conscious that [the Queen] may not chide her for appearing on a Vogue cover," this individual said. 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 queen has never given an interview herself and did not like that Prince Charles and Princess Diana gave the many that they did.
What's more interesting in E!'s item is a "senior royal aide," who says, "Both William and Kate are free to be interviewed or photographed by whoever they choose. They are a modern, progressive couple and I'm sure there will be lighter exchanges with the media in the future." With celebrity interviews being so tightly controlled nowadays, Kate and William could probably give plenty and have the stories come out exactly as they want them to. Michelle Obama used her many magazine covers wisely to promote her causes, like the arts and healthy lifestyles for children, without looking like a frivolous clothes' horse. Kate could certainly do the same for whatever causes she chooses to adopt and probably make herself seem even more easy to relate to for the many who find her so.
