By Adelaide,

The Queen has appeared on the cover of Vogue for the first time for an issue celebrating her Platinum Jubilee.

Queen Elizabeth II appears alongside Hollywood royalty Anya Taylor-Joy”, who has a separate cover, for British Vogue’s April issue, with the outlet paying tribute to the monarch by looking back at its relationship with the 95-year-old over her 70-year reign.

For the Queen’s cover, the magazine used a photo of the royal taken during her early years on the throne which was taken in 1957.

A spokesperson for the magazine explained the issue will “pay “special tribute to Her Majesty the Queen, ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, by looking back on its own unique relationship with the Monarch during her seventy years on the throne.”

The queen first appeared on a magazine cover when she was a baby in July 1927, sharing the front of Tatler with her mother.

She has gone on to feature on the cover of a wide range of publications including Time, Vanity Fair and Punch.

The April issue of British Vogue is available on newsstands and via digital download from Tuesday, March 29.
