ALERT! Princess Diana & Kate Middleton Share Creepiest Magazine Cover Ever

Yep, this is really Newsweek's latest cover image: The late Princess Diana strolling along on a lovely afternoon, having what appears to be a lively conversation with her daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton.

Totally normal stuff, except that it's been 14 years since Diana passed away so Newsweek needed to resort to Photoshop in order to resurrect her.

And that's not all...

The fake Diana has an iPhone! Okay, seriously, what is going on here?!
This freaky fan fiction comes courtesy of Newsweek's editor-in-chief (and Diana biographer) Tina Brown, who really went all out to commemorate the Princess of Wales' fiftieth birthday.
There's even a mock-up of what Diana's Facebook page may have looked like that really makes you go "wait, what?!"

As you can see, Diana seems to have a thing for Colin Firth movies (really, who doesn't?), The Good Wife (so relatable!) and is even Facebook friends with Camilla Parker-Bowles (Prince Charles "likes" this, of course). The piece also speculates that Diana would totally be down for some chin Botox, but might have had a tough time sharing the spotlight with Kate.

Between the superficial description of what Diana would have been like at 50 years old and the insane Photoshop aging, it's a little too much ridiculousness to take in all at once.

There's bad taste and then there's this mess. Tell us what you think: is it just creepy or the creepiest?!

The latest issue of Newsweek takes a morbid approach to what would have been Princess Diana’s 50th birthday. The deceased royal, whose milestone birthday would have been this week, appears on the front cover of the magazine alongside daughter-in-law Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, also known as Kate Middleton. 

The cover picture shows newlywed Catherine glancing over her shoulder at Diana, whose image seems to have been photoshopped and distorted to account for the passing of time.

Daily Beast founder Tina Brown paid a tribute to the late princess by writing up a “Diana at 50” article, which describes what Lady Di would have been like had she not been killed in a Paris tunnel crash nearly fourteen years ago. (Tina Brown: Did I say it was a launch?)

Brown, who wrote the nonfiction book “The Diana Chronicles” in 2007, suspects the princess would have maintained her style, dabbled into cosmetic surgery, and had “at least two” new spouses had she lived longer.
