No Vogue Covers For Kate Middleton, Palace Says

We got all excited when we read rumors of a Kate Middleton Vogue cover (The Cut even went ahead and made a quite lovely mock-up).

Alas, today People reports that there will be no covers for Catherine.

A palace spokeswoman told the magazine, "There are no plans for the Duchess to do anything with U.S. Vogue," dashing our dreams of seeing the duchess and her bouncy brown locks, a solid knee-length dress and those L. K. Bennett heels shine on the glossy pages of Vogue.

Instead of posing for silly fashion magazines (the ones that have made her a star, mind you), the Duchess of Cambridge will focus on her charity work.

Presumably after completing her "How To Be A Royal" course, Kate will choose projects where she can "make a difference," the palace told People.

"She knows her role is to bring a spotlight onto causes and she will do that – and when she starts, she will do it with gusto," said another source.

Much as we'd love to see a royal Vogue cover, philanthropic work sounds fine to us... just as long as she keeps wearing those outfits and fascinators with gusto, as well.
