NEW YORK (AP) -- The latest Newsweek cover contains a ghostly sight: a computer-generated image of a stylish Princess Diana walking with Kate Middleton.
The article inside was written by Diana biographer and longtime provocateur Tina Brown. She's also Newsweek's editor-in-chief.
Diana was killed in a car accident in 1997 and would have turned 50 on Friday. In April, Middleton married Prince William, the oldest son of Diana and Prince Charles.
"What would she have been like?" Brown writes of Diana. "Still great-looking: that's a given." About the cover, a Los Angeles Times headline had a different question Tuesday: "Shocking, brilliant or just plain cheap?"
