Queen Elizabeth has appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine for the first time for the April issue for her Platinum Jubilee celebration.

Queen Elizabeth appears alongside actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who has a separate cover, for the April edition of British Vogue. The magazine is paying tribute to the Queen's 70-year reign.

The cover displays Queen Elizabeth's 1957 image, taken by Lord Snowden, the former husband of Princess Margaret. The Queen was featured wearing the George IV State Diadem in the photo, which was clicked around the time of her tenth wedding anniversary to Prince Philip. The issue will be available on newsstands and in digital form from March 29.

According to the magazines' spokeswoman, the said issue will pay a "special tribute to Her Majesty, 95, ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, by looking back on its own unique relationship with the Monarch during her 70 years on the throne."

The publication's editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, stated that in recent years, the "ancient institution" of the British royal family has seemed to change and modernize, making an effort to specify the work of underrepresented people. "When I received my OBE for services to diversity in fashion several years ago, I thought carefully about what the decision to accept it would mean," included the editor's letter.

"Ultimately, I saw an ancient institution that was setting about on a programme of change and if they had noticed and wanted to recognise my work as something worth spotlighting, given the fact my endeavours were all about spotlighting under-represented people too, then I felt comfortable - keen, even - to engage."

The Queen has also once appeared in Vogue. She was featured sitting on her mother's lap in a photo taken in 1927 when she was only one-year-old.

In 2016, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was also featured as Vogue's cover star in celebration of the magazine's centenary. Meanwhile, in 2019, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, guest-edited an issue. Her cover featured images of women she described as "forces for change," which included the climate activist Greta Thunberg among others.
