Newsweek “Diana at 50” feature reaps derision

Editor-in-chief Tina Brown, one-time friend of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, published a feature story imagining what the royal diva would be like today. The cover was equally imaginative, photoshopping Diana strolling alongside Kate, née Middleton, the daughter-in-law she will never meet this side of the cosmic curtain.

The journalistic feat met global derision. Vanity Fair came up with a wonderful parody, “James II at 310,” and discussing, tongue in cheek, the romance that never happened – between King James Two and Pippa, “the love that might have been.”
