Britain's Princess Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, has made her debut on the cover of Vogue magazine. The 34-year-old royal posed for the 100-year anniversary of the style magazine's June issue. Seven photos were taken by the famous photographer Josh Olins in the English countryside. Two of them will be in an exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery. Kate's mother-in-law Princess Diana was on the cover of the magazine four times.

The duchess said she was, "delighted to play a part in celebrating the centenary of an institution that has given a platform to some of the most renowned photographers". She thanked Josh Olins for being a pleasure to work with. She also hoped that people could see "the sense of relaxed fun with which they were taken". Mr Olins said: "This was the duchess's first sitting for a magazine and she was a joy to work with. A natural."
