Newsweek Cover Features a Digitally-Aged 50 Year-Old Princess Diana

Diana at 50, Newsweek

The new issue of “Newsweek” magazine has a rather interesting cover, featuring a digitally aged Princess Diana walking with daughter-in-law Kate Middleton. The July 4th Issue is titled, “Diana at 50.” Princess Diana would have been 50 this Friday if she was not tragically killed in a car accident back in 1997.

As for the cover, it’s raising some eyebrows. Have they have taken our obsession with the Royals too far? Saying it’s distasteful, and rather bizarre. We may digitally age ourselves to see what we would look like down the road, but do we do this with family or friends that have passed?

Tina Brown, Newsweek Editor, says, “We wanted to bring the memory of Diana alive in a vivid image that transcends time and reflect my piece.”

Tina also wrote her predictions if Diana was alive today, claiming she would have likely moved to New York, gotten botox, have an iPhone, fallen in love with a man of power, and had over 10 million Twitter followers.

They even created a mock Facebook page for Diana, Princess of Wales.

Do you think “Newsweek” took things to far, is this all in bad taste? Is it neat to imagine what her life would have been like if Diana were alive today?
