British Vogue is giving its centenary issue the royal treatment.

The iconic fashion magazine revealed Saturday that Kate Middleton graces its June 2016 cover in honor of its 100 years of publication.

"BREAKING NEWS: The Duchess of Cambridge is Vogue’s centenary issue cover star," the magazine tweeted with an image of Middleton on the cover donning a white button-up, fitted brown coat and forest green hat. The Duchess was involved in selecting items for the shoot, including pieces from Burberry and Petit Bateau, the magazine reported.

Celebrating the faces and fashions of a century, the cover star, photographed by Josh Olins in the Norfolk countryside for her first-ever magazine shoot, will grace 10 pages of the special issue.

"For me personally it has been a wonderful experience to have had the opportunity to work with her on this, and I am immensely proud of what we have produced," said Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman. "This special issue of the magazine is very close to my heart as it had to reflect on 100 years of British Vogue, and so I am hugely grateful that we have been able to continue with our tradition of outstanding royal portraiture with these pictures." 

Two images from the Duchess' photo shoot will be installed in the Vogue 100 exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery that will run until May 22.
