Queen Elizabeth and Anya Taylor-Joy are ready for their closeups.

The monarch, 95, appears on the cover of British Vogue for the first time in history for the magazine's April issue, which hits newsstands March 29. The issue will celebrate the Queen's reign and her Platinum Jubilee this year, as well as the outlet's "unique relationship with the monarch."

Alongside the Queen, Taylor-Joy, 25, who is described as an "actor of the moment," has a separate cover for British Vogue's latest issue.

For the Queen's cover, a black and white portrait taken during her early years on the throne was used, where she was photographed wearing the George IV State Diadem while gazing into the camera.

Taylor-Joy's cover, meanwhile, pays tribute to that iconic snapshot, showing The Queen's Gambit star wearing a replica of the crown atop her head and a silver dress.

Meghan Markle, meanwhile, made history in 2019 when she became the first guest editor of the September issue in the magazine's storied history. There, the Duchess of Sussex, 40, helped curate the "Forces for Change" issue.

The issue featured 15 trailblazing women on the cover, among them a group of actors and models, politicians and authors, as well as advocates for diversity, mental health, climate change and voting rights.

Markle also interviewed former First Lady Michelle Obama for the special edition, alongside "inspirational articles written by Brené Brown, Jameela Jamil and many others," according to a statement shared on the now-defunct Sussex Royal Instagram page.
