Princess Diana at 50: What She Would Look Like Today

Today would have been Princess Diana’s 50th birthday.  In recognition of that date, Newsweek’s latest cover shows a digitally-aged picture of Princess Diana walking alongside Kate Middleton.  Some are calling this picture creepy, while others find it to be interesting.  The DailyMail stated that the Newsweek article addresses some other controversial issues including whether Princess Diana would have accepted Camilla Parker-Bowles. The media has long been fascinated, some say obsessed, with Princess Diana and with the arrival of her 50th birthday, that has not changed.

Royal Style: Princess Kate vs. Diana
Newsweek imagines what Princess Diana would look like at 50, putting a digitally enhanced photo of her, alongside daughter-in-law Kate Middleton, on the cover of the latest issue. Diana, who appears trim with only a few wrinkles, would have reached her milestone birthday on July 1. In the cover story, Newsweek envisions that the Princess of Wales would have migrated to New York, dumped Dodi Al-Fayed, married twice more and made peace with her ex, Prince Charles, and his new wife Camilla. Newsweek adds that Diana would have enjoyed her new daughter-in-law and been best friends with Kate’s mother Carole Middleton. (Newsweek)
