What better way to immortalize a future princess than with iconic pop culture treatment. In the run up to her April wedding
, Kate Middleton
is gracing the cover of a collector's edition of Britain's Tatler
magazine. She is shown in a color-drenched portrait reminiscent of Andy Warhol's images of Marilyn Monroe in the 1960's.
The February issue is on sale now in the U.K., and includes a royal engagement special.
