Queen Elizabeth II Would Disapprove Of A Kate Middleton Vogue Cover

Remember when every fashion blogger in existence got all in a tizzy over a potential Kate Middleton Vogue cover?

Turns out the Queen will make sure your cover dreams go unfulfilled.

E! reports that Queen Elizabeth II is quite against the idea of the Duchess of Cambridge posing for fashion spreads, with a palace source saying, "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.'"

We suppose we already knew a royal Vogue cover wouldn't happen, but a disapproval from the Queen herself really seals the deal.

"But both William and Kate feel it would be wrong for Kate to promote herself as a fashion or style icon. That's not what they are about and they take their royal duties far too seriously to, in one sense, trivialize them."

Trivialize? We're slightly offended. After all, Kate Moss, the closest thing the fashion industry has to royalty, let Mario Testino, Middleton's rumored Vogue photog, snap her wedding the fashion bible's September issue.

Then again, we're guessing Moss doesn't come from such a strict family.
