(CNN) – British Vogue is celebrating its 100th anniversary in royal style.

As part of a partnership with the British National Portrait Gallery, the Duchess of Cambridge will appear on the centenary issue of the fashion magazine and have two of her portraits hung in the gallery.

All eight photographs will appear in the magazine’s June issue.

The portraits, shot by British photographer Josh Olins, show Kate Middleton in the Norfolk countryside in a casual, relaxed setting.

“His [Olins’] work is known for its quiet elegance, the character he captures from his sitters and a degree of relaxed understatement,” Vogue said. “The series of images capture The Duchess in casual informal wear and reflect her love of the countryside.”

The two portraits in the National Gallery will be on display until May 22, according to Vogue.
