Kate Middleton has been getting tremendous media attention from the time she started dating Prince William. But since their wedding on April 29, the media coverage of her has completely changed its angle.
Media follows what she wears, how she looks in a dress, and often she is being compared to other royal icons. Every single accessory that the duchess wears is in news. Is all of this pressurizing Kate (Catherine) to look like a perfect flawless Diva?
She has lost weight even before her wedding. But that is not uncommon for a bride. It is only after her honeymoon that she looks like she has lost weight considerably.
Wills wants Kate to put on a few pounds but she's refusing, revealed a royal insider. William thought they'd eat, drink and be merry on honeymoon but Kate was careful about what she ate. Her calorie counting is borderline OCD.
Kate's pictures have been covered extensively by the media since the royal wedding.
Coming from a middle-class family, the pressure on the Dutchess is also quite unimaginable to anyone outside the celebrity club. The insider continues, Her waist is now under 24 inches. Before she met President Barack Obama, her size 8 Reiss dress had to be taken in.
Designer Anya Hindmarch commented on the subject saying, I hope she doesn't become too much of a fashion icon because it would be so exhausting for her. I know her a bit and she's a naturally healthy girl. She does a lot of exercise and no wonder she lost weight around the wedding - it's quite an ordeal to go through.
Kate Middleton is known to exercise a lot, so it is possible that she spends every possible waking moment on a treadmill. She has dropped from a size 8 to a size 2 in six months. At her wedding, she was 5'10 and weighed 100 pounds. That's alarming enough, but her continued weight loss is downright scary, the report said.
The eating disorder seems to be running in the royal family, since Princess Diana had also confessed to both bulimia and anorexia.
Can't blame the Dutchess, as more and more girls these days are giving in to the society's demands for thinness. Children as young as 8-year-old are known to have Anorexia. It is hoped that the Dutchess does not take the illness to an unhealthy level.
