The cover tagline states “Fashion’s new royal icon wears SA’s best local designs” asterisked with a clause of “Of course she doesn’t. But she should.” The magazine used local illustrators for a feature which has the Duchess draw in five different locally designed outfits. So it’s not a simple case of head-photoshopped-onto-body – it’s more like illustrated fan art. Still, if it’s not her wish to be on the cover, is there something a little strange with the idea?
