Queen Elizabeth II On The Cover of Vogue For The First Time

Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain appears for the first time on the cover of Vogue magazine for its April issue.

Reuters reports that the appearance of the photo of young Queen Elizabeth on the cover of Vogue is, according to the famous fashion magazine, a tribute to the monarch's Platinum Jubilee this year.

The black-and-white photo presented by Vogue was made by the famous photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones in the early years of the 70-year-old's reign.

The photographer, who died in 2017, was married to Queen Elizabeth's sister, Princess Margaret, between 1960 and 1978.

This is the first time Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain has been pictured on the cover of the magazine. Previously, the Sovereign featured in illustrations here marking her marriage to Prince Phillip in 1947 and the Silver Jubilee in 1977.

"British Vogue pays special tribute to Her Majesty The Queen by looking back on its own unique relationship with the Monarch during her seventy years on the throne," said Vogue magazine in a statement.

The issue, which will be on sale from 29 March, features a second cover that depicts The Queen's Gambit actress Anya Taylor-Joy wearing a replica of the George IV State Diadem.
