The Ghost Of Princess Diana Haunts The Cover Of Newsweek

| Filed under: Royals Royce

Something about this just seems kind of wrong.

No doubt that Prince William has had his mother on the brain ever since he asked Kate Middleton to marry him. Losing Princess Diana in 1997 was a hard blow for the world, but so much more so for her young sons, who lost their chance at having her at the most important moments of their lives.

We're sure the thought of his new bride spending quality time with his mother has also crossed Prince William's mind or two and apparently, the same thought has occurred to the editors of Newsweek. Had she survived that fatal crash 14 years ago, Princess Diana would've been turning 50 this coming Friday. So, in covering the milestone, Newsweek digitally superimposed an age-altered version of Di alongside her daughter-in-law for the cover of the mag.

Part of us is intrigued by the way the digital artist seemed to really capture what Diana would look like if she were still with us. A bigger part is truly shocked that their EIC approved something rather distasteful.

What do U think? Cool, creepy or cheap???

    Creepy! And I have a feeling Princess Diana would look a bit better than that.



  2. 2

    This imagined pic is jus6 cruel, stupid & disgusting!



  3. 3

    Must be really hard for them (her sons) to see this ! What a shame from Newsweek to improve the royal family this way !



  4. 4

    Tina Brown is a whore. This is wrong, wrong, wrong. Let Diana rest in peace.



  5. 5

    creepy.



  6. 6

    Not Cool.



  7. 7

    I find it sickening they would do that. I think she would of looked much better than that and it just seems wrong that they would post that considering her family might see it.



  8. 8

    Amazing. Thank you Newsweek. She is loved by us all!



  9. 9

    Wow. Amazing.



  10. 10

    omg That's terrible! Not cool Newsweek.



  11. 11

    This is awfully grotesque. Some people have no morals or standards. They should apologize to Diana's family for printing this garbage.



  12. 12

    That is wrong on so many levels. Sickening.



  13. 13

    Theres really no need to do something like this. We all know people get old. And she is dead. So this is just stupid and an insult.



  14. 14

    I am confused with how I feel on this….just the other day I thought to myself that Kate M. pics and news are beyond execessive….now this. It is a nice thought though to imagine that DIana never died and she would have been walking along with Kate - she probably would've adored Kate



  15. 15

    Whomever is writing the comments for Mario - your understanding of the world is seriously limited.



  16. 16

    You dressed as Diana for your wedding coverage and you call this creepy, distasteful and cheap? Lmao, you really are a fatheaded hypocrite. Then again, you dress as a 6 year old girl for Toddlers. You're the last person to question what is creepy pedo.



  17. 17

    NOT cool, Newsweek. And, yes, Diana would have looked a lot better than that, but then the comparison would be obvious and the media don't want their little darling to be outdone, not even by a person no longer with us. Gosh, Diana was a marvel.



  18. 18

    i think its creepy and cheap!!!!!



  19. 19

    idiots.



  20. 20

    That is INCREDIBLY distasteful.



  21. 21

    Why do they have to dig up these dead celebrities from their graves every year and parade their decayed corpses as if they were still alive?



  22. 22

    Isn't that sweet; Diane & Kate are spending quality time together; maybe they are headed out for tea & crumpets….



  23. 23

    Shouldn't Diana's body be SQUISHED & her head hanging by her jugular vein with her jaw bone exposed?



  24. 24

    Di was murdered by a programmed assassin.



  25. 25

    Tasteless. But who reads Newsweek anyway.
    Kinda like watching MSNBC.
    There aren't any ratings for the crap these orgaizations regurgitate.
    -
    Tina Brown is a c-nt.



  26. 26

    Haunted in life and haunted in death. They need to leave her alone, she is dead. Let her rest in peace and allow her children to live their lives with out the constant public reminders! God knows, they probably have enough of their own.



  27. 27

    Newsweek has obviously become desperate and has lost all journalistic integrity.



  28. 28

    Cool!



  29. 29

    absoutely tasteless. i hope that her beloved boys won't see this. unbelievable.



  30. 30

    can you say SICK!!!
    .
    .
    NEWSWEEK HAS NO DIGNITY OR CLASS
    ..
    DISTASTEFUL!!!



  31. 31

    NOBODY SHOULD BUY IT!



  32. 32

    If Diana was still alive, shouldn't she be draped in one of those Muslim Black Sheets with a little slit for her eyes to see?

    And wouldn't she be locked in Dodi's Palace Harem with all of his other wives?



  33. 33

    this is SO distasteful and creepy!! I think it's deplorable that they did this, and yes, princess di would look SO much better than that if she were still with us. I can't believe they published (or even considered doing) something like this. ugh this is just awful!!!



  34. 34

    It's wrong and a terrible way to remember her. They should be ashamed.



  35. 35

    Tasteless.



  36. 36

    Kinda creepy. I don't like the picture. It's just weird



  37. 37

    This picture is disgusting, i don't understand why anyone has taken the time and effort in producing this disgraceful picture



  38. 38

    Okay that's just creepy. I lost my mother at 16 and I know she would be really angry if her photo kept being put overtop of everything I did in my life that was positive to make the situation more somber. This is about WILL AND KATE not Diana and she was a wonderful woman who is very missed but I'm sure she wouldn't like to keep being brought up in so many strange and inappropriate ways, especially when it would effect her sons. Bad call Newsweek



  39. 39

    Defies all logic. Trash Newsweek. The Editor should be ashamed of printing this. Let the woman rest in peace already and leave the new bride alone! What's with the facination anyway?



  40. 40

    Wow not even dead do they leave Diana alone just proves the point that all these tabloids are nothing but trash. Must be hard on her kids to have to see this am sure they have dealt with her death their own, Newsweek needs to back off.



  41. 41

    Tasteless



  42. 42

    creepy. and i think it's embarrassing for her family and sons.



  43. 43

    Shame on you Newseek…I already do not read you and never will!



  44. 44

    This was in very poor taste and who ever came up with the idea is an insensitive jerk -with no class



  45. 45

    Definitely creepy and tasteless….



  46. 46

    HORRIBLE. Bottom of the barrel reporting. They need to leave this poor woman rest in peace instead of trying to make a quick buck.



  47. 47

    So absolutely distasteful.



  48. 48

    That is just weird and creepy



  49. 49

    I am so glad that people are feeling a similar way to how I feel. I wondered, when I was appalled by the cover after I got the magazine out of the mailbox today, if I was over-reacting.
    I immediately thought of people I have lost and how I would feel seeing them aged by speculation and graphic design. I think it was not for Newsweek to make that leap for William or Harry or even Kate. It is really disgusting to me and I think it is a shame. I hope they learn their lesson and I think they owe a few apologies.
    This isn't news, by the way, what they did. It isn't news at all and I am sorry for getting a new subscription.

  50. @v@ says – reply to this

    Is this a new low making bank off of deceased people? Yikes. Everyone knows how well any cover did back when Diana graced it. Shakes head.



  51. 51

    they didnt even do a good job at this so called artist interpretation of how'd she'd look
    might as well just draw her in like a disney character



  52. 52

    Definitely creepy, and quite insensitive.



  53. 53

    Bad photoshop job! Doesn't look realistic enough! So yeah, just kinda creepy.
