Star: Meghan Markle has lost 23 pounds ahead of the royal wedding?


Britain's Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive to attend a reception hosted by Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia, right, and his wife Lucy Turnbull, second right, at Australia House in London celebrating the forthcoming Invictus Games Sydney 2

I remember the lead up to Prince William and then-Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding. When we did get photos of Kate, it seemed like there was always a noticeable change in her weight. Looking back on those photos now, it’s striking how much weight Kate lost in the year before her wedding – it actually started before the engagement, and then just went full-throttle throughout the engagement. It’s pretty common for women – and some men – to go on pre-wedding detoxes and diets, and it’s common for both brides and grooms to lose a dramatic amount of weight so they’ll “look their best” for the wedding photos. So, obviously, I guess we’re talking about Meghan Markle’s weight right now. From Star Magazine:

“Meghan has always been thin and shedding a few pounds would have been no big deal, but she’s lost a shocking amount of weight just in the last two weeks. Even though she’s had to have her dress taken in several times, Meghan seems obsessed with losing even more before the big day,” an insider tells Star.

Sources surmise that Meghan has dropped about 23 pounds from her 5-foot-7 frame, “that’s to improve her appearance on TV, obviously, but it’s a little too thin – and definitely not healthy.”

Sources say Meghan has pared off pounds by adhering to a drastic diet that includes cleansing juices prepared by a private chef and “crunching on ice chips to ward off her appetite,” spills the pal. “Meghan hasn’t eaten a real meal in months. Plus, she’s been working with a personal trainer and running like crazy. I hear that Harry has been begging her to have a cheat day and ease up, by Meghan says that can wait until the honeymoon.”

Kate Middleton reportedly shrank several sizes leading up to her 2011 wedding by following the high-protein, low-fat, low-carb Dukan diet. “Meghan has access to the same nutritionists and trainers that Kate did,” hisses the source. “It wouldn’t be surprising if she’s following in Kate’s footsteps.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Has Meghan lost a dramatic 23 pounds since the engagement was announced? No. She was already a small woman, and a 23-pound weight loss would make her look like Karen Carpenter. But Meghan HAS lost weight. So has Prince Harry – he’s been looking more and more svelte every time he steps out in public. But I just don’t believe that Meghan and Harry are crash-dieting or doing anything “unhealthy.” I think they’re just working out a lot and watching what they eat in general.

    I don’t believe this story she was always tiny and if she lost that much she’d be in children’s clothes. She actually looks the same as from when I watched Suits years ago maybe a couple of pounds but 23??!!

    • LAK says:

      Given her small frame, 23 isn’t out of the realms of possibility.

      Not saying this report is true or not exaggerated, but small framed people can lose a hella weight before they start to look gaunt. It’s one of the advantages of being small framed.

      • hezzer19 says:

        Sorry, I don’t want to seem argumentative but it’s quite the opposite. Meghan is a lot taller than me but she’s got tiny bones. I’m only 5 foot 2″ and have bird bones. If I lose 5 pounds it’s blatantly obvious. People ask me if I’m sick.

        For an average sized woman (height and weight) 10 pounds is about 1 dress size. From watching Suits and seeing her now she’s maybe lost 10 pounds.

        And considering all the crap going on in her life that may be just stress.

      • Amelie says:

        Eeeeh I disagree. I lost around 10-15 pounds between the years of 2010-2012. I’m 5’6″ so not super tall and not super short, average. I have a slender frame to begin with and the weight loss was VERY noticeable. I lost weight due to depression, not because I was trying to diet. I wasn’t eating because the depression suppressed my hunger/motivation to eat. People noticed and commented and were rightly worried. When I look back at pictures of myself from that time, I was so tiny, it’s hard to believe I was that thin. Someone shorter than me, I think the weight loss would be very noticeable. If Meghan lost 23 pounds, she’d be anorexic looking.

      • Clare says:

        Lol what? 23 pounds would be like 15-20% if her entire body weight (assuming she is between 120-140 pounds)

        That’s crazy and definitely definitely WOULD show.

      • LAK says:

        Ladies (I assume), I presume that you’ve measured your wrists to determine whether you are big or small framed because your height and visibly being ‘bird boned’ is not a determinant of frame.

        The size of your wrists can be compared to an international standard chart that tells you which you are and based on that, you know which you are.

        You can’t simply decide that because you are short and appear to have ‘bird bones’ it means you have small frame.

        The science and anecdotal marker of a small framed person is the ability to lose tonnes of weight *below their ideal body weight* before it shows to extent that they look gaunt. Losing the weight doesn’t mean it won’t show, it simply means they don’t look gaunt or sickly.

        It’s also a marker of a big framed person to look immediately gaunt when they lose only a little weight *below their ideal body weight*. In this case they look extremely unwell instead of just alittle thinner.

        So if you are short and you didn’t lose much yet looked sickly as a result of the weight loss, and assuming that you have no medical issues, then I would suggest to measure your wrists to determine if you really are small framed.

        All of that said, I will correct my original statement about 23lbs being possible for someone of her height, but I stand by my statement that small framed people can lose weight without looking gaunt.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        I agree with Hezzer19! I’ve got bird bones and am Meghan’s height — 5’6″ — and every pound I lose shows on my body as well as on my face (which would REALLY look scary if I lost 23 pounds). No effing way Meghan has lost that much weight. NO way. She would look like she was mortally ill! And if she lost 23 pounds of body weight, she would probably BE ill as a result.

        And as to wrist measurement, I wear a gold baby bracelet, so I would feel safe in saying my wrists are small…but for anyone, small wrists are apparent to the eye, anyway.

        Honestly, some of these tab stories are pure silliness!

      • Godwina says:

        LAK, I can’t read your comment. I’m small-framed and only 5’2. I’m never overweight, but when I travel (= nonstop walking for hours every day) or get super stressed and can’t eat, losing a mere 8-10 pounds makes me look gaunt as fuck. Conversely, because I’m only 5’2, 5 additional pounds is a lot more obvious on me than on a 5’8 woman. So, really the opposite IME.

        And yes, my wrists are ridic small–I can’t wear even the smallest bracelet as they slip right off. If I take my thumb and forefinger and make an O around the opposite wrist, my wrist fills but half of that circle.

  2. Originaltessa says:

    Yeah, no. 5-10lbs, maybe. 23 lbs on her frame and she’d look sickly, which she doesn’t.

  3. Cher says:

    No, not 23 pounds.
    Let’s just get to May 19th, please!

  4. minx says:

    Who is the “pal” who is telling Star that Meghan snacks on ice chips? And “23 pounds” is such a hilariously specific number. I do think she has lost some weight.

  5. jess1632 says:

    23 pounds?? She’d be looking way too frail in recent pics to be true. She doesn’t need to lose weight whatsoever to begin w she’s thin already and looks great to boot

  6. KB says:

    When did she shoot the Suits episode with her in the wedding dress? She seems a lot smaller than that now, but it may be because she has such thin limbs and you couldn’t see her legs. Her body is a lot like Angelina Jolie’s, she looks normal when her limbs are covered or hidden and super thin when they’re not.

    • Elisa says:

      ITA that her body looks a lot like AJs.
      Whatever her weight loss, she is gorgeous. They are showing some of her old films on TV in my country and IMO she looks better now than she did back then.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Meghan is a true rectangular shape: thin limbs and thick through the middle (as well as short-waisted). If she lost 23 lbs. her limbs would look skeletal. I don’t buy this one bit. She lost 5-10 lbs. from nerves and working out, moving and settling into her new life/job? Sure. But no way she’s lost “23″ (and not 22 or 24!!) lbs! lol

    • PrincessK says:

      The poor girl has been losing weight ever since the engagement was announced. The intense focus and pressure on her must be unbearable. I bet that everyone will comment on how thin she looks in the wedding dress. I am also looking forward to after the wedding when she can relax and put some weight on her bones, poor thing.

    • nic919 says:

      They finished shooting that part of the season in November 2017. I think she has probably lost some weight, but 23 lbs seems extreme.

  7. Zapp Brannigan says:

    I am stupidly excited for this wedding, I have a final exam tomorrow for a qualification I am taking through work and next Saturday will be my first free weekend since last September, I have snacks and a fasinator all ready to go!

  8. Starryfish says:

    She’d literally have blown away if she lost more than 10lbs. 😂

  9. Bridget says:

    Obviously 23 pounds isn’t a thing here.

    But that ice chips thing just sounds so depressing. I’d rather be 5 pounds heavier and eat.

  10. Merritt says:

    I don’t think she has lost that much weight but she has lost some and she was already small. There is so much pressure on royal women and it has been observed several times.

  11. tw says:

    Is she 5’7″ ? She seems more petite. But even at 5’7″, I would say she weighed about 110-115. Losing 23 lbs would put her under 90 lbs. This story is ridiculous.

  12. Ginger says:

    Idk about 23lbs, but she’s noticeably smaller. I mentioned it in another thread last week.

  13. Eloise says:

    I know. Friend of mine at one of their recent events “She was so thin. Almost frail. And her cheeks looked hollow and sunken.”

    Poor Megs. Hope Hazza is worth it :-)

  14. Beth says:

    It would be really noticeable if she lost 23 pounds. She might have lost a little weight, but I really doubt it was 23 pounds

  15. Ari says:

    23? Please. She clearly lost some though.

  16. Keepitreal says:

    She looked and dressed a lot better, before her engagement.

  17. Becks1 says:

    I just realized there are two Becks that comment here, lol.

    Anyway – definitely not the 23 pounds. Kate lost a ton (remember that event where she wore the blue suit? She was super thin then) but Kate wasn’t coming from Hollywood and acting. Kate was already thin and then did lose weight pre-engagement through the wedding like Kaiser mentioned, but Meghan comes from a world where she was in front of a camera for months on end, and where skinniness is prized. I am sure she has lost some weight, but probably only 5-10 pounds.

  18. homeslice says:

    She’s very thin…I bet some of it is the stress! I can’t imagine.

  19. Ladykeller says:

    First of all there is no way she is 5 ft 7. I am 5 6 and I guarantee I am taller than her. And second I don’t think she has 23 lbs on her body to lose. I’ve got (or rather used to have before 2 kids) her body type. I’d say more like 10 lbs.

  20. Valerie says:

    Seems like an exaggeration.

  21. LT says:

    Brides don’t just lose because of diets – the stress can do a lot too. I couldn’t keep weight on during my engagement (or my divorce). It wasn’t intentional – it was stress.

  22. Anna says:

    For a tiny woman like her to lose 23 lbs is impossible. She’d have to lose a whole limb.

  23. mkyarwood says:

    From where? Most people lose weight before the wedding! It’s not always about body image, sometimes it’s STRESS.

  24. Sage says:

    She looked so much more confident, healthier and happier before she got involved with PHG. Sad🤐

  25. L84Tea says:

    Weight loss happens to every princess in training. Even Princess Grace of Monaco dropped weight before her wedding just from the stress and pressure.

  26. Deeanna says:

    Don’t know if these are correct, but here’s what is listed:

    Meghan: 5 ft. 6 in.
    Harry: 6 ft. 1 in.
    Kate: 5 ft. 10 in.
    William: 6 ft. 3 in.

    • Veronica T says:

      If you look at the Christmas walk pictures, Meghan is tiny compared to the rest of them. She comes up to Kate’s nose! I think MM is 5’4” and Kate is maybe 5’9” or so. She seems pretty tall. William does seem a lot taller than Harry.

    • LAK says:

      Kate wears 4inch heels most of the time, and occasionally 3inches. That is rarely taken into consideration.

      When she stands next to someone like Charles who is 5ft 10in she is usually shoulder to shoulder with him in her 4inch heels.

      Meghan is also pictured most of the time in 4in heels when she’s with the royals, so any visual measurement needs to take that into consideration.

  27. violet says:

    This again? Diana lost tons of weight, Sarah Fersuson lost tons of weight, every bride I have ever known has lost weight before the wedding (including yours truly) – Kate was already slender, I remember her engagement photocall in the blue dress (the one thing I admire about her looks is her height, small waist, and legs), she didn’t seem that different to me by the wedding. Diana did, though, and the usually pudgy Sarah Ferguson did. They ALL do it. I hope Meghan hasn’t lost that much, she’s already small, you don’t want to look “meager” and sometimes it doesn’t do the face any favors.

  28. Egla says:

    23??? Nop. She would look sick. Maybe she has lost max 5 kg but still don’t think that much either. A friend of mine gained weight for her wedding because she got a dress that had to be either modified for her and loose it’s form or she had to grow a size and some boobs. She choose the later and her husband was HAPPY.

    Recently I lost 3 kg or 4 maybe it depends on the scale I use and you could tell the difference. My friends noticed that immediately. Even my clothes stay different in some places. If I had to loose more let’s say 10 kg they would send me to the hospital no questions asked. I can’t really afford to loose so much. And I look thin because It seems I have dense bones and the “meat” is dense also, don’t know how to translate it, as I have a little muscle in me and they weight more than fat.

    In pounds I must be 130 now I think.

  29. ASHBY says:

    She walked by us with Harry at the Invictus games in Toronto, in flats, she is quite a bit shorter than him.

    Very radiant woman for sure, lovely skin tone and great hair.

    I’m 5 ft 8 in and very slim, I think MM is about 5 ft 4 in or at the most 5 ft 5 in.

    Harry, I’m guessing is around 6 ft tall.

    I don’t think MM lost 23 pounds, maybe 10-12 pounds.

    She looks thinner than on Suits, I watched that show from the very beginning and she seems definitely thinner to me today.

    Kate lost a lot of weight leading up to the engagement and the wedding, she stayed mostly stick thin over the years.

    I’ve also seen Kate and William on their visit to Canada, she was very skinny in person.

  30. Leyton says:

    I think she’s lost weight but 23 pounds? I don’t see that. I would imagine maybe 10, possibly a few more but 20? No.

  31. JustJen says:

    While I did work out more and watch my diet before my wedding, I lost the most weight due to stress and nerves. And my wedding was just a regular wedding and reception with 200 of our nearest and dearest.

  32. Shannon says:

    There’s no way she’s lost 23 lbs. She’s a small woman, she didn’t have 23 pounds to lose! I can believe she may have lost a few pounds, but I doubt she’s seriously sitting around eating ice chips.

  33. violet says:

    What I hope is that she goes easy on the blush, I feel as if I’ve seen too many photos where it looks overdone and too shiny (photo at the top a case in point). I’m sure the dress will be beautiful, I hope it’s sleek and she doesn’t go in for 20 yards of Meghan-swallowing cloth plus glitter (full disclosure: I have a problem with beading unless it’s done very, very sparingly – I am probably the only person in the world who didn’t like Diana’s “Elvis” dress for that reason), and I hope she goes for sophisticated and doesn’t go too virginal orange blossoms and veil-y. And, I hope she lets professional makeup people do her face.

  34. sedj says:

    Why do women in this royal family need to be this thin?!

    • violet says:

      @sedj – it’s not just this royal family: Letizia and Mary were already normal body size, if petite gals but turned into wisps after marrying Crown Princes. Maxima of Holland seems to be an exception: big girl happy with self, but Victoria of Sweden had serious bouts of eating disorders as a younger person; I think she had real body image issues especially in comparison with the (classically speaking) much prettier blonde blue-eyed younger sister who was once named the most beautiful princess in Europe. The media can be so cruel.

      So it’s not just this family by any means – the onslaught of daily media attention and endless magazine covers . . . probably exaggerates everything. And Letizia had a nose job after she married Felipe. Her nose didn’t bother her as a not too famous newscaster, but as Crown Princess of Spain with the paps everyplace she took a step and seeing her face all over every magazine cover obviously made her feel that she had to look nicer in photos.

      Meghan was not on every magazine cover at the supermarket until she turned up as Prince Harry’s S.O. Now she is. Remains to be seen what happens to her head in the glare of this much attention.

  35. Nel says:

    DM and Sun have done it again. They seem to have issue with Meghan.

    • C. Remm says:

      Meghan is the weapon, they are going at Harry. They have been excluded from the wedding, so it is their revenge.

      • violet says:

        @c. Remm – ITA – but I don’t think it’s about the wedding, that’s recent, they’ve been going after him through her to pay him back for threatening them with that letter, which I read somewhere later on was actually drafted by her lawyers at her insistence because as early as fall 2016 she was convinced the British press was out to get her. Harry agreed to sign off on it and put it out under his name. If this is the case, maybe her lawyers didn’t get the way the British press and tabs work and how much power they have and how vindictive they can be, and they should not have jumped the gun so early. So this started early, and more than one poster has pointed out here that the tabs’ strategy is to print gushing articles about her that can’t qualify as libel or scandal but don’t throw particularly pleasant light on her past or character.

        And, maybe a British poster here can help out with something else I read about something called a “Leveson” inquiry which I have no clue about that got defeated in Parliament and if it had gone through would have stifled the press even more, and that the bill’s defeat got rid of that clause about making media outlets pay legal costs even if they won the case (that is, defended themselves successfully against charges of libel, scandal, instrusiveness).

        So what is Leveson and does the defeat of this bill mean that the veiled threats in Harry’s letter no longer apply? So H&M are more vulnerable now than they were?

        IMO, the tabs, who weren’t kind to Kate and Harry’s former GFs as it was, are not going to stop going after Meghan. These superficially enthusiastic articles that hint at Meghan being an opportunistic climber with a slightly sleazy past are just for now. Once the shiny glow of a wedding (and then probably very soon, a baby) start dimming, I’d bet anything they have other stuff stored up ready to unleash.

        That letter was very, very ill-advised on both Meghan’s and Harry’s parts.

      • C. Remm says:

        Oh, I agree, that is a “war” which has been going on for quite some time. I do not agree that the letter was the start because the press went after her before that letter. I think the letter was totally okay and the press should be told where the limit is. These tabloids are right wing and they are racist and everybody who says something against Trump – like Meghan did as it is claimed – gets her Fanclub full force.
        Today I learned that a jewish journalist who publicised the story of the half brother of Melania experienced death threats. She received phone calls where people played recorded Hitler speeches and the callers told her she should burn in the oven. Melania said, that this journalist deserved this since she provoked this reaction.

        The negativ press is based on what others say about Meghan. Are you responsible for what others say about you? Jesus, what sort of a twisted world do we live in?

    • Snowflake says:

      Yes on the DM right now, they have an article saying that Meghan’s Dad is a scammer. Because he staged those pictures! Everybody does that! Why is that an issue? They deliberately slant things to pander to their racist audience.

      • violet says:

        @Snowflake – “everyone” doesn’t, and “everyone” isn’t the father of the bride whose fiance just pleaded with the press to leave his future father in law in peace. The bottom line is, the bride’s father is also using her to make money just as articles appear in other mags talking about how “close” they are and how “supportive” she has always been of him. Public perception is everything – her trashy estranged half-sibs aren’t such a surprise: the guy who is about to walk her down the aisle making money off her is another thing altogether. This makes Harry look like a fool and the hastily produced articles about how close to her Dad and supportive she has always been of him look like the attempts to hide the truth that, to some extent, they probably were. How good could the relationship be if he was willing to sell her out so brutally and sleazily a week before the wedding?! Don’t you see – it makes them all look suspect and Harry like a gullible fool.

      • Jayna says:

        Are you kidding me? What he did is horrible and embarrassing for his daughter.

      • He is American after all. Good for him make that money. Why should everyone else benefit from his daughter and not him. The British taxpayers are not supporting him. If they want to they should say so.

  36. Nel says:

    Snowflake, Meghan’s dad was caught on CCTV videos staging all those pictures ( the measurements, the cafe, reading the book and even dropping flowers for MMs mum) which he later sold for over $100k. He should not have done it considering that KP had issued warnings to photogs to stop taking photos of him. The Kardashians and other celebs do it, but they are not from the British Royal family.

    • violet says:

      @Nel – I think I’ve revised my earlier opinions about Meghan having her father walk her down the aisle if there was the slightest shred of memories and good feeling between them. This betrayal by her own father is unforgivable – a week, a week before the wedding!! – and Meghan should stop trying here, separate herself entirely from the family, and that Mr. Markle should be persuaded to come down with a bad case of flu just before the wedding and be unable to make it, so her mother can walk her down the aisle, or better yet, William, as it would be a sign the royal family is standing by her. I’m sorry, this is just disgusting, a father doing that to his daughter so publicly.

    • PrincessK says:

      I felt disappointed about this but only for a very short time . The truth is he WAS being hounded by photographers selling pictures to the likes of DM who were raking in in uncovering the ‘elusive reclusive’ man Would you like rags like DM making thousands of bucks from your image without you getting a dime? I wouldn’t. He has turned the tables and played the media at their own game Good luck to him, the last laugh is on DM and others who bought the ‘fake’ pictures Posh middle class Middleton’s are still making far more money trading on their royal connections The RF will be sympathetic because they also hate the way the media make money by taking pictures of them when they are having private time. So Mr Markle in my opinion is having the last laugh and led the media on a merry dance thinking he was ‘learning about Britain’, ‘trying to lose weight’ and ‘having his morning suit made in Mexico’…..Loool :) :) :) Good one Mr Markle! Do we know for sure that he took money or what he did with it. But we do know for sure he was playing a trick.

  37. Nel says:

    Violet I agree with you, even the pictures where Meghan’s dad was seen dropping flowers (peace offering) for Meghan’s mum and Meghan’s mum picking it up were all staged. It’s so sad. I’m surprised some people don’t see anything wrong in what he did. The fact that Kardashians and all sorts of rag-tag celebs do it doesn’t mean the father of a woman whose fiance has written a protest letter to photogs to desist from taking pictures of him should do it. If my father did that, I won’t take it lightly with him. Whether we believe it or not, what he has done will reflect badly on MM with her in-laws behind closed doors. We can argue that it won’t, but let’s not be deceived, what the Windors try to potray towards Meghan in public may not be the same behind closed doors. Already there was the report by Richard Palmer last week that Prince Philip calls MM the Duchess of Windsor (referencing Walis) which is very uncomplementary.

    • violet says:

      @Nel – totally THIS. ITA.

    • Jayna says:

      Spot on.

      All staged. I said it before. And I knew it when I saw the latest photos with them knowing his movement in LA and that whole flowers photo.

      He’s been making a buck off of his daughter at the most important time in her life, trying to be accepted into the British royal family. And there’s dad staging photos and profiting. I would never let him walk me down the aisle, and I will be very surprised now if he does. He has humiliated his daughter by being as scummy as his trash children with the profiting off of Meghan. No wonder Harry hasn’t met him yet. She probably didn’t trust her father.

      • Msthang says:

        What if he wanted the extra money to give his daughter a really wonderful wedding gift? It looks like he lives hand in mouth, kind of poor actually. I personally question whether she helps him out financially , and if her mother filed for bankruptcy twice, I wonder as well about her. The siblings stay ticked at her because she didn’t give them any money or support as they put it. I reckon it really isn’t anyone’s business but their own.

  38. cee says:

    Just seen Thomas Markle Sr’s staged photos. I would be livid and humiliated. With everything being tossed at her, the last thing she needed was THIS.
    I’d gladly walk myself down the aisle. Now I understand why Harry has not met him. You wouldn’t want a drifter to get access to someone like Harry and his family.

  39. Nel says:

    I’m stupefied that anyone would defend what MMs dad did. For any one to applaud him for ‘making quick bucks’ from staging pictures is unbelievable. His daughter is marrying into wealth, isn’t he foolish not to look at the long term benefits of being the father of Harry’s wife? Why don’t people understand that his actions will greatly embarrass the RF especially as KP issued stern warnings to paparazzi to stop taking photos of MMs dad. I bet Harry would have egg on his face by now knowing that the man for whom he warned photogs to steer clear off was actually staging photos to sell.

  41. Nel says:

    IT’S REPORTED THAT the photos surfaced after KP asked paparazzi to leave the dad alone. His reps even issued a letter to international media asking them to lay off him, saying all of the requests for interviews and photo shoots were intruding on his privacy. THAT MEANS THE PHOTOS FOR WHICH KP ISSUED THE STATEMENT WERE ACTUALLY STAGED BY MEGHAN’S DAD and some people are still defending him.

      Well we do not actually know the real TRUTH about all of this. What is clear that the international media did not leave Mr Markle alone after being told to, so maybe he took matters into his own hands, we really don’t know. It is probably not something I would have done but we are not walking in their shoes.

      Thomas Snr and Doria did not push for their daughter to marry a British prince and they have been subjected to horrendous pressures that we only know a fraction of. Maybe Mr Markle was trying to control what was being put out in the media about him, something the RF and other famous people do all the time. The RF and other ‘famous’ people stage photos al the time but when an ordinary bloke does it he is torn to shreds. Let’s wait and see how all this pans out.

    @Princess, he was SEEN IN CCTV leading in the paparazzi who took the staged photos. What truth is there to it?
