This is the cover of Vogue magazine for the issue released in August of 1981. This was published just after the wedding between Prince Charles and Princess Diana, which took place on July 29, 1981. The photograph of Diana on the cover is not from the wedding itself, but was captured at a different time. The cover’s focus on her wedding to Prince Charles makes it clear how invested the world was in following this relationship, and the way in which the royal wedding was one of the biggest cultural events of the century. Additionally, the close-up portrait of Diana, and the lower headlines mentioning articles on fashion and beauty indicate how highly regarded she was throughout the world for her beauty and sense of style.
