Call it creepy or call it cool, Newsweek has photoshopped a picture of the late Princess of Whales, Diana, and the new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton together on the cover of their latest issue.
The issue, which pays homage to what would have been Diana’s 50 birthday this Friday, has the author of “The Diana Chronicles” Tina Brown narrate her guess at what Diana’s life would be like if she was still alive today.
“Diana would have gone the J.Crew and Galliano route a la Michelle Obama, always knowing how to mix the casual with the glam. There is no doubt she would have kept her chin taut with strategic Botox shots and her bare arms buff from the gym,” Brown said, commenting on Diana’s possible style and physical appearance.
In regards to her failed marriage with Charles, Prince of Wales, Brown said that she thinks Diana would have had a wide array of romantic relationships stating that she suspects she would have been married at least two times.
“After the breakup I see her moving to her favorite city, New York, spending a few cocooned years safely married to a super-rich-hedge-fund guy who could provide her with what she called ‘all the toys’: the plane, the private island, the security details,” said Brown.
“Gliding sleekly into her 40s, her romantic taste would have moved to men of power over boys of play. She’d have tired of the hedge-fund guy and drifted into undercover trysts with someone more exciting—a high-mindedly horny late-night talk-show host, or a globe-trotting French finance wizard destined for the Élysée Palace. I suspect she would have retained a weakness for men in uniform, and a yen for dashing Muslim men.”
Brown suggested that over the years, Diana would become friendly with her ex-husbands now wife, Camilla Shand but that she wouldn’t exactly open arms to her son, Prince William’s now wife Kate Middleton.
Brown also says that Diana would have been actively involved in some of the worlds most recent natural disasters and the attacks on September 11, 2001.
“9/11, the tsunamis, the Pakistan earthquake, Hurricane Katrina—you know Diana would have been first at the scene in a hard hat with a camera crew (and, by now, 10 million followers on Twitter).”
