Kate Middleton’s weight and physical appearance have been a topic of discussion among royal fans, especially in recent years. Some of them think that the Duchess of Cambridge is too thin, while others believe that her weight is proportionate to her height.

On the online forum site Quora, royal fan John Lingley, who lives in Great Britain, said that he thinks Middleton looks dangerously underweight, and she could also be verging on anorexic. Her recent outings revealed that the future Queen is probably at her lowest weight since she had her three children.

“Others have said look at her face, she doesn’t look underweight, I disagree, however. If you look at her arms, her legs and particularly her hands she is painfully thin, without a doubt she needs to be at least a stone to a stone and a half heavier than she is now,” he said.

Paul Stevens, a university lecturer, said that no one knows for sure if Prince William’s wife is underweight. But if she, there could only be one reason why she doesn’t want to gain weight.

“It’ll probably be because she’s inwardly terrified of appearing overweight and the inevitable media “fat-shaming” which would ensue,” he said.

Dan Weinberg, who works at UK Civil Service, said that Middleton isn’t underweight; she’s just naturally thin. And there’s a difference. Another royal fan said that unless the public has access to the mom of three’s health records then that’s the only time that they could claim that the Duchess of Cambridge is too thin and underweight.

Meanwhile, royal fans have also been discussing Meghan Markle’s weight throughout the past couple of months. Some of them are questioning why Prince Harry’s wife has not bounced back to her pre-pregnancy weight considering her son is almost 6 months old.

But when the Duchess of Sussex attended the One Young World Summit earlier this week, it was evident that she has lost a considerable amount of weight since giving birth to her son in May.
