It's quite a serious position so in some ways it doesn't seem right to give it to someone who hasn't actively worked for it. Maybe in England it would be "easier" to do but to be an ambassador in many parts of the world is a tough job, and I have so much respect for them. I'm curious to find out if the rumors are true or not, the public reaction would be interesting to see!
Don't people who spend their lives in public service who work up to these position actually work in countries where diplomacy is needed though? I mean, the people who get positions to "nice" countries are pretty much because of patronage system. I'm NOT saying that relations between the US/UK/France aren't important and necessary, but it would be a different story if they were going to select her to be the Ambassador to Kuwait. I'm not even sure if the ambassador to a place like the UK matters because of their "Special Relationship" and the Deputy Chief of Mission runs the embassy there anyway. The current ambassador to France and Monaco was the former CEO of the Jim Henson Company, If he can do it, I'm sure Anna can.
Also, I kind of want her to get a reason to leave Vogue. Even though it's been getting a bit better lately, I think it's time for a new perspective.
