Royal Pressures Take a Physical Toll on Poor Kate Middleton (PHOTO)

Kate Middleton

For the longest time, Kate Middleton looked like she was holding steady at a post-baby weight she was comfortable with, but it seems her body is changing once again. The Duchess has lost a significant amount of weight lately, signaling that she might be so stressed from her daily royal routine, it’s literally eating her away. That, or Prince George’s mama is on one very dangerous diet.

Unfortunately for Kate though, this is NOT her best look.

On Tuesday, the Duchess was with Prince William and Prince Harry while visiting the Tower of London’s ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ poppy installation to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I. She wore a cerulean LK Bennett dress that accentuated her VERY small waistline.

Since giving birth to Prince George in July 2013, the Duchess has managed to keep some of that post-baby weight on her frame, making her look like the yummiest mummy to come out of Kensington Palace. In fact, we haven't seen Kate look this rail thin since 2012, when even Katie Couric made waves when she commented about how horribly thin Kate looked.

So could this mean that Kate is feeling SO pressured to get knocked up that she’s not eating? Something must be going on behind those royal doors. Or perhaps someone might be criticizing her figure as well. Heck, it happened to both Princesses Diana and Fergie back in the '90s when both ladies were slammed for having a little more than an inch to pinch. Sadly, the royal family has a long history of eating disorders and we fear that cycle just won’t end.

Whatever Kate’s dietary habits are, there’s no denying that something must be getting to her. Whether it’s the stress of getting pregnant again or someone telling her to cut back on those macaroons, Kate’s sudden weight loss signals that she may be unhappy or anxious about something, and only time will tell what it is.

Do you think Kate has lost too much weight in the past few weeks?

"daily royal routine takes a toll on kate" this is the joke of the century!! Kate has NEVER worked in her entire life, she makes 2 or 3 appearances a month cutting ribbons and waving! Shes pathetic, compare her to european royal women , they are older , with more kids and are hardworking, there are more important issues in the world than a lazy pampered, sheltered, greedy woman with her pathetic eating disorders!!!

Will everyone please back off from this poor lady, she is fine leave her alone, or otherwise everyone is going down the Diana route hounding her day after day.

Jane, you apparently don't know anything about Kate's life before she married Prince William. She did, in fact, work for a clothing company called Jigsaw and she was going into a cake making business with her brother, James, in 2010 before she got married. Sure, she never worked an assembly line or what-have-you, but she DID work. And she DOES work. #udontknowherlyfe

I would rather hear lovely information regarding Kate. She is very beautiful and it's not our business what her weight is. As long as she is healthy, it's no concern of others. She could be losing extra to get ready to be pregnant again and have alittle space to gain a few pounds. But please post nice things and stop the false rumors.

@lena ..............yep she worked at her mothers company jigsaw, it was a pretend job that her mum gave her so that she could be available to willliam whenever he needed her ... The employees in that cmpany said she was always taking off to go vacationing with william, ya.. So much for hard work, she is patron of only 5 charities, she makes appearances quite rarely, she is famous for being LAZY!!

waity... waitykate


WHAT "DAILY ROYAL ROUTINE" ??????????   The stupid article makes it sound as if Waity Katie does anything much. What a joke. She's always been anorexic, after starting out chunky she went on the same anorexic diet her mother uses. She wants to be a stick.

Boy I wish I could look like her, why don't they just leave her alone to live a happy life with her little family.

Debbie Learn

I think Duchess Kate looks great ! It's sad people do not leave her alone. Guess these people are jealous of her.
