The late Princess Diana and the very-much-alive Kate Middleton strut side-by-side on the latest cover of Newsweek. It’s shocking, yes, but it also strikes me as tasteless to play around with the image of a dead person who left behind two children. This Photoshopped cover image appears on a Newsweek double-issue in which editor-in-chief Tina Brown, who published a book about Diana in 2007, opines on what Diana would have been like had she lived to her 50th birthday. (She would have owned an iPhone, got Botox, worn J.Crew, and moved to New York City, Brown imagines.) That is a legitimate enough topic to explore, of course. But Photoshopping Middleton next to her husband’s dead mother in order to sell magazines feels unseemly to me.

Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress? You ain’t seen nothing. The sparkly Jenny Packham gown worn by the newly minted Mrs. Wales is a stunner. It’s from Packham’s spring 2011 collection and Middleton wore it to a charity gala at Kensington Palace in London last night. I don’t know what’s more gorgeous: the princess or the dress!

Some secret that was! Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived in the Seychelles this morning for their honeymoon, a spokesperson for the country’s department of tourism confirmed today. The couple will be staying in a “secluded villa” on a private island, the identity of which is unknown. These two understandably wanted to keep their honeymoon between the two of them; Kate reportedly was kept in the dark about the destination so it’d be a total surprise. Oh well. Sometime tells me their exclusive island surrounded by bodyguards won’t be too easy to access. I hope the paparazzi leave Kate and William alone on their Seychelles honeymoon so they can f**k like bunnies in peace. And with villas a reported $6,600 a night, it had better be private.

Prince William and Kate Middleton will honeymoon on a 10-day vacation somewhere in the Indian Ocean that will cost $6,600 per night, the Daily Mail has hinted. Because how do you top a wedding watched by two billion people around the world? With a balls-to-the-wall honeymoon, of course. The exact location of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s honeymoon is said to be known by the gossip press, but is being kept a secret out of respect for the couple — in part because Kate reportedly does not know the exact location herself!
