Prince William is worried about Kate Middleton’s dramatic weight loss


Another week, another interesting story about Kate Middleton and Prince William. Last week’s story had William cheating on Kate, and something about Kate wanting to “call off the wedding” (as if). This week’s chapter: Kate is so distraught over all of the royal drama, that she’s losing weight, and now Will is worried!

Kate Middleton is distraught over William’s cheating and her upcoming wedding – and she’s wasting away! The stressed out 5-foot-10 brunette has lost an alarming 15 pounds, pals say and she’s recently dropped two who dress sizes to a size two.

Now some royal insiders fear Kate could be on the verge of developing an eating disorder, just like William’s beloved mother Princess Diana!

“Kate sheds pounds when she’s under stress – it’s happened before. She normally weights about 130 pounds, which is fine for her height, but dropping 15 pounds is too much,” royal watcher Rick Sky told the Enquirer.

When Will and Kate split up three years ago, Kate lost so much weight that observers were shocked by her painfully thin appearance and bony, almost concave chest, according to Sky. “Now it’s happening all aover again,” he said. “There’s a question mark over whether Kate will marry Will, and it’s taking a toll on her health.”

Will is worried about Kate’s weight loss, and family members fear Kate is facing the same pressures that lead to Diana’s battle with bulimia.

“Kate’s obsessed with her weight and it bothered when people comment on it,” the insider divulged.

To add to her misery, scheming Buckingham Palace insiders have also forced Kate into signing a confidentiality agreement that prevents her from ever talking about her romance with William. The move was orchestrated to protect William should the relationship not go the distance, according to a report.

The first rule about The Royal Family: You do not talk about the royal family. Second rule: You do not talk about the royal family. The rest of the article is blah, blah, Kate is worried about Will being a cheater like his father, and how William is a commitment-phobe, and how everyone just wants her to get to a healthy weight. As far as the weight issue goes: Kate has lost weight in the years that she’s been dating Will – but considering that they got together when they were, like, 20 years old, I just thought that Kate lost her teenage weight, you know? Her baby face. She just thinned out as she aged. Sure, I think she probably loses weight when she gets stressed out – I remember seeing photos of her after they split in 2007, and she looked dramatically “streamlined” if you will. But she seems like a naturally thin, athletic girl, so whatever. I don’t think she looks too thin in her most recent photos.

    She has a wonderful figure, but her face does not seem to match her chronological age.

  2. BReedy says:

    pure speculation.

  3. LondonLady says:

    I am the same age as her and I would not dream of wearing half those clothes. She needs to dress more her age

  4. Samantha says:

    I know the new iPhone has reception problems, but wearing a satellite on your head just makes you look silly. Get a different phone.

  5. jm says:

    “To ass to her misery” – I feel an inappropriate joke coming on…

  6. bite me says:

    Samantha, thkx for the chuckle 😀

  7. ,,,, says:

    I predict that next week’s royal family story will be:

    “Conversely, Kate is Worried About Prince William Losing His Hair!”

  8. Kaiser says:

    JM – sorry, I fixed it. Should be “add”.

  9. Cazzyb-uk says:

    @ Leticia, she’s a smoker i think.

  10. hanh says:

    She probably dresses that way because its “Royal Appropriate”. She was a fashion buyer or something like that I thought. She’s always seemed pretty stylish in a conservative way. I love her purple coat.

    I do feel for her with all this stringing along but she has her eye on the prize and that is the crown. I don’t think she’s too thin but she’s probably stressing.

  11. bellaluna says:

    I know it’s painfully tacky, but I’d like to know how much she’s spent on clothes while she’s been with Wills. Outfits (and, oh dear, hats) like that cannot be inexpensive.

  12. Kaiser says:

    bellaluna – I’d like to know too, just because I think her style is… not good. She needs to be a princess, stat, just because then she’ll have people helping her dress.

  13. bellaluna says:

    Kaiser – Amen to that! 😉

  14. Canucklehead says:

    How old is she exactly?

    she looks about 39

  15. Deens says:

    I live in London and the fashion girls around here are all painfully thin. Walk down any high street and you’re surrounded by a sea of clavicles. Sad, starving, fake-blonde, orange women everywhere. Would be surprised if Kate Middleton didn’t follow suit. At least she doesn’t fake tan or highlight her hair to within an inch of its life…

  16. meme says:

    Were I Kate, I wouldn’t have signed anything but would have split a long time ago. After seeing what the royals did to poor Diana who the hell would want to marry into that family. I would however, be Hot Harry’s mistress.

  17. feather blue says:

    Perhaps it’s all the jibes about being *weighty* katie? Personally, I’m bored sick of the whole “she’s too thin/fat” debacle that never seems to let up. I now don’t know what’s normal anymore… Kate looks fine to me.

  18. multikultiMe says:

    … and Kate, in turn, is worried about William’s dramatic hair loss

  19. tssssss says:

    i dont see any weight loss. she looks normal.

  20. a says:

    just like diana.

    those royals can drive anyone crazy.

  21. moo says:

    His hair is too thin.

  22. Obvious says:

    i know when i’m stressed i drop weight like crazy. i used to be a competitive horseback rider, and i was known to drop 5-10 pounds in 3 days because of the stress of it all. i left because it was such an unhealthy lifestyle. let’s lay of Kate-I can’t imagine having people comment on will they/won’t they everyday across the world can be helping her stress levels. poor thing.

  23. Angelina says:

    Everything about her is so dull and boring that I can’t really think of anything to say.

  24. Jaxx says:

    I doubt he marries her. When a couple get iogether there is a natural evolution that leads to marriage. If that impetus is missed then the couple goes into a holding pattern. If too much time passes then the natural irks and stresses take their toll, the sex becomes routine and each can begin to wonder if there might be someone better out there.

    This is why you see many couples spend years and years together, suddenly break up and one or the other meets someone new and is married in six months.

    I’m not putting money on them marrying.

  25. viper says:

    LOL! ass

    I wish you kept that there it was awesome.

  26. nanster says:

    Kate’s still pretty now, but I think she is NOT going to age well. She already gives the appearance of being older than she is. As for the “royal” dress with those ridiculous hats – I wish Kate would break the tradition and not wear them. This is 2010, after all.

  27. excuse me says:

    Poor Kate! The Windsors have a terrible track record in the “faithful” department, just look at Prince Charles and his father. Kate is doomed if she marries into that family. That being said, I think she looks great. As long as she eats healthy she’ll be okay.

  28. P.J. says:

    I think the Inquirer has misinterpreted things because of the culture gap.

    Kate has a small-boned torso (narrow rib cage, waist and hips), which is a typical English body type. Her sister and mother have similar physiques. Most American women have much bigger bone structures and could not be that thin even if they were starving.

    The hat she’s wearing is called a “fascinator.” It’s small and worn sideways on the head, and very stylish. Kate’s hats are appropriate for the occasion and are typical of what other upper-crust British women wear. British hats in general probably look very weird to most Americans.

  29. polkasox says:

    @PJ – I’m an American, I know we have a problem with obesity, but I think it’s a little much to assume all of us Americans are too “big boned” to be thin like an English woman. There are plenty of thin women with petite frames in America.

    I’m 5’11”, & can’t even imagine weighing 120-ish lbs. I look ridiculous weighing less than 135. & I have a slim, athletic frame. Poor thing has to look like she could be knocked over by a breeze.

  30. polkasox says:

    & PJ, I’m pretty sure Samantha was making a joke about the hat. Grow a sense of humor.

  31. Julie says:

    From what I understand, Kate is obsessive about working out. She doesn’t have anything else to do, after all, except wait for William to propose. Can understand her losing weight from all the tension. She seems to have a slim, athletic build anyway. No hips, no boobs, no lips. I second polkasox; not all American women are big boned.

    She apparently gets some of her dress up clothes from designer Issa and from what I have read, gets them for free. They are supposedly friends and the designer gets good publicity. Some cashing in on being William’s gf, perhaps. Kate’s brother and sister have recently shown up in the front row of her runway shows.

  32. Angelina says:

    @PJ – That is one ignorant post. Could you please tell me what a ‘typical english body type’ is? Body structure has nothing to do with it because most American women are just plain FAT. Also, Americans have ancestors who came from ENGLAND; therefore, if there was a typical english body type it would also be in America.

  33. Cammi says:

    God, they already look middle aged!

  34. Tia C says:

    @ Angelina: Yep. ITA.

  35. KatC says:

    5’10” 130lbs is already really thin, so I can see where any further weight loss would be troubling. That said, it probably does more damage than not to have her weight talked about in tabloids constantly.

    I think that I would hate to be famous.

  36. Jen says:

    OK….first of all, American women are not “just fat”.

    Second, I am 5’11” too and the only way I’d weigh 130#, let alone “drop 15″ to hit 115# is by removing organs.

    I wish the press would stop reporting women’s height and weight. When I was in high school, I read that some model was 5’11” and weighed 135 so I decided that was what I wanted to weigh. Many years of body issues followed.


  37. canadianchick says:

    @samantha thanks for the joke, as a blackberry user I’m enjoying the iphone jokes.

  38. Dee says:

    I am an American but have followed the goings and comings of the Royal family for over 60 years. The real problem of infidelity within the current family lies with Prince Phillip. Note his pre-marital advice to Prince Charles. He probably is telling his grandsons the same thing…. Marry and after a short while, return to your mistress(es). Prince Phillip was known to have been a cad about his new young bride, now Queen Elizabeth.

  39. KLaw says:

    I am 5’11” and I was 135lbs when I was a runway model. I looked ready to die of starvation and I was STILL the pudgy one at my agency.

    Poor Jen, I sympathise with you!

  40. guilty pleasures says:

    I think she is referred to as ‘Waity Katie,’ not ‘Weighty Katie.”
    I think it would be fun to be a princess as my starter marriage! The travel, the experiences, the inside scoops…then, you divorce and find the real prince! You’ll have money, societal prestige, everything! Go for it Katie, and don’t forget to have a baby right away!

  41. TeeTee says:

    not sure about her weight but HE will be bald in 5 yrs or less…what a pity

  42. nofreelunch says:

    I think she’s a lovely girl who looks her age. We are used to seeing Hollywood girls in that age group who have already begun their efforts to turn back time. Kate’s face is just not worked on. I hope they get married: she’s earned her pension.

  43. abbizmal says:

    She looks fine, at least not too skinny in those pics. That hat does look like a satellite dish. Good call, Samantha.

    What wedding??? I totally missed them getting engaged. When did that happen? I’ve been off the planet a bit, I guess.

  44. mojoman says:

    She will gain/lose weight anytime she want, no big whoop. but William on the other hand, will only lose his it’s his loss.

  45. Shannon says:

    Losing weight when you’re stressed out or depressed is NOT an eating disorder.

  46. I think she looks fine too! When it comes to celebrities there are a lot worse for sure… and at least you are not seeing all skin and bones like some eh? I think she looks healthy and fit!

  47. Lindsay says:

    Copying Princess Diana even before engaged. Her hair needs a good trim/cut too.

  48. pato says:

    LOL at the satellite and hair loss, she looks thin as usual. but I think she always looked like that.

  49. Stephanie C. says:

    Please be nice….she is and will continue to be under tremendous pressure…..
    Wish them all the best in the world….
    Life’s too short to be miserable. If there are
    children involved, it will be 500 times more
    difficult for her if something happens.
    Don’t make guesses about what the future will hold for
    these two.

  50. Jen says:

    Honestly, if she really weighs just 115 pounds at 5’10, she’s thinner than some runway models and most definitely obscenely underweight. My best friend is 5’4 and 112 and severely underweight looking. Her spine protrudes, her face is old and skinny, her neck is caved in, her legs are twigs and her rib cage always shows no matter how shes standing. and thats 20 pounds HEAVIER than Kate. Kate must be a bag of bones! She is well on her way to health problems, no good! Most people can’t sustain a bmi under 17 unless they don’t eat at all.

  51. She looks good. I think that if she started in on a healthy diet she would start to become a little more filled out and much more interesting looking in the face.

  52. Valentine says:

    @Jen if your friend, at 112 lbs, is 20 lbs heaver than Kate then Kate would have to be only 92 lbs.

  53. Ack says:

    I believe the media is trying to create a problem. I mean, what a great story if he marries a woman plagued by the same disorder his mother had?

    That said, I’m 5’10. Kate isn’t under 130 in those pictures. Her calves and arms are by no means fat, but I wouldn’t gasp in horror at them being thin. She’s okay just the way she is, so get back to tormenting some other troubled public figure, media.

  54. Nisha says:

    She is about to get married in front of the ENTIRE world.. what did you all expect? Of COURSE she was apt to loose a bit of weight.. what bride to be do you know that gains any?

  55. Tom says:

    I saw a picture of her taken in 2004 when actually had an ass on her.

  56. Heather says:

    I think she just looks tired and I would be to. I think everyone needs to leave her alone let her be happy and enjoy the blis of knowing shes gonna marry the man of her dreams.

  57. chance says:

    There is no evidence tht William is or ever has, cheated.
    Grow up, r u the Enquirer? Or, the Star?

  58. Lyn says:

    Hello- the average female weight is decided by 2 factors- height and bone mass–
    with 5 ft as the deciding height an average boned female should weigh 5 lbs per inch over that.
    A large boned female (ie: wide shoulders hips ribs) should weigh 7 lbs per inch over that.
    A Small boned female (Kate- although tall) should weigh 3 lbs per inch over 5 ft.
    With her height she can carry more but her estimated average weight for health debates is OK at 130.
    Let her be- she’ll be fine.

  59. Lyn says:

    PS- Congats to them both- and hopefully they’ll never have to deal with the philandering aspect. I for 1 believe that when you take VOWS- all that should end- no matter your social status!

  60. PH says:

    Maybe her weight loss is morning sickness?

  61. Haylee says:

    You are all just jealous. She is fabulous and doesn’t need the added pressure of all the public critiquing her every move. Love to you Kate and Will. Well wishes in your new marriage!

  62. Kylie b says:
