Last week, Newsweek tantalized their followers on Twitter.com by posting a snippet of this week's cover along with a challenge to guess what it was. No one guessed that it was a photoshopped image of Princess Diana -- as she would look today -- walking with her daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton.

Princess Diana would have been 50 on Friday, but the Newsweek graphic artists digitally altered her likeness to make her look closer to 60. Naturally, the British people are howling mad at Newsweek's Diana at 50 cover. The cover story: "If She Were Here Now", was written with care by Tina Brown.

The issue is on newsstands, iPad, iPhone and your Kindle today.

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    disrespectful :blink::

  • SamYell JacksEm is AWESOME

    Who cares? :yawn:

  • hotterboi

    ....with the digital altering to look 60, she looks more like her daughter-in-law :/

  • Belle

    :shocked: So disrespectful. Wow.

  • Yardgirl

    Creeepy :blink:

  • renegadesince1985

    They are so wrong for that....

    Why is Kate Middleton so skinny??? Somebody throw her a scone or something! :blink:

  • KK76

    Cute pic, Rene. Yes, and she would not appreciate her neck looking like that.

    Waiting on Kdub to comment on Big Daddy Kane's Unsung.

  • blunt

    :no: they should definitely let her rest in peace outta respect for her family. I heard on the radio this morning about Monica Ali's Untold Story it's basically about what would have happened if a princess very much like Diana had survived her car crash and lived on secretly in small-town America. SMH

  • ygoody88

    I agree that it's disrespectful and totally unnecessary.

  • 2cents

    Snore and next!

  • renegadesince1985

    Thanks KK76!

    I don't know why they won't let this woman rest in peace....those damn paparazzi were the ones that killed her. I remember they said the paps were taking pics of her body instead of calling an ambulance. SMH :no:

    I was in L.A. this weekend and I was at the same restaurant as Justin Timberlake. Those paps were outside for hours waiting on him to come out. Every time someone opened the door they start snapping hoping it was a celeb...that shyt it crazy man

  • vjackson

    You sure this is for real??? If so, who's idea was that!!

    :yawn: Oh ok...

    Creepy :yes:

    direspectful :shrug: I don't think so.

  • xamaycan

    I dont even understand why this is worthy of a post :shrugs: I think it was done in kindness and besides her looking older than she would have been I personally think it is a nice photo.

  • jazi65

    Why won't they let this woman rest in peace?

  • Tatted Diva

    It's in poor taste...disrespectful, I'm not sure. BUT IF ANYTHING, I WOULD BE MORE WORRIED AS TO WHY THEY HAVE MY FACE LOOKING LIKE THAT! IT'S ALMOST AS IF SHE IS, IN THAT MOMENT, BATTLING A CASE OF TOURETTE'S!

    @ tatted diva

    I was just about to say that. I dont see anything disrespectful about it, but it was in very poor taste.

  • Tatted Diva

    BTW - GM SR FAM! :hi:

  • laci

    I agree Tatted Diva

  • Tatted Diva

    Why thank you, laci!

  • ohpretty1

    I dont see anything disrespectful about it, but it was in very poor taste.

  • Fayla

    GM :yawn:

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Lord, this is proof that I really hadn't seen or heard it ALL!!! :blink:

    Good morning my FB Family... :hi:

    I'm not feeling to well this morning :sick:

  • pinksghetti

    This is disrespectful to her sons & other relatives. Newsweek is supposed to be a reputable magazine like Time (I think)

  • kahmmillion

    Wow, there sure a lot of frail looking women in England.

  • ohpretty1

    After reading the article, there are a few disrespectful comments. The author is speculating on how much botox she'd have at this point, a long line of "billionaire" boyfriends and ex-husbands, and more. That was unnecessary.

    They are waaaay to obessed with this Lady. I think it was a tad bit too much. I actually like the picture but if i was the son I would be offended and it would probably stir up some emotions that I have already delt with.

    This is what I wanted to copy.

  • deedeegirl

    yes they did, that just looks creepy. let the dead rest in peace.

  • Melissa

    Dang, you can't even die and find peace no more, smh!

  • DMisses

    That was very cruel but I am not surprised, the paparazzi is partially responsible for her death so it would be too much like right for them to let her rest in peace. She and Michael Jackson's family will forever be taunted by the media!
