The Queen To Feature On The Cover Of British Vogue For The First TIme

Queen Elizabeth II will star on the cover of British Vogue for the first time, marking the platinum jubilee.

The upcoming April issue of British Vogue will present the 95-year old monarch in her early years as she stars on the magazine's cover for the first time.

In the special tribute to her majesty, the magazine will reflect on its unique relationship with the Queen during her historic 70 years on the throne. 

In his editor's letter, British Vogue's editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, wrote:

 'When I received my OBE for services to diversity in fashion several years ago, I thought carefully about what the decision to accept it would mean.

'Ultimately, I saw an ancient institution that was setting about on a programme of change and if they had noticed and wanted to recognise my work as something worth spotlighting, given the fact my endeavours were all about spotlighting under-represented people too, then I felt comfortable – keen, even – to engage.'

The April issue of British Vogue will be released on March 29th.
