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???
