What's up with Kate Middleton these days?


Quote  |  Reply

I remember there were some serious concerns about her eating habits right around the marriage, and I followed it for a while because I was very excited about the wedding. I generally don't read about celebrity issues however, and fell off the bandwagon.

How is she doing? She still looks very thin to me, but perhaps in a less unhealthy way. Anyone know if she's still being labeled as having anorexic tendencies? She looks happy from what I saw of the Olympics.

Wait, is Kate MIddleton and fiona apple the same person?  OR is Kate Middleton one of the spice girls?  I forget.  Or is she married to David Beckham??

What does she "do"?  Does she have a career or a clothing line or some type of fast food chain?  Anything?  Or is she one of those tabloid chicks that is just famous for being famous...like those nasty Kardashians.  Gross.

Well for one thing, she is not Kate Middleton any more. 

When she married Prince William she changed her first name to Catherine (which is her real name BTW but is now the name she is known by).

She is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. When Prince Charles eventually becomes King, then William will become Prince of Wales (the title given to the heir to the throne) and Catherine will also become Princess of Wales.

As to her weight.. she looks very thin in photos of her visit to the States. It seems likely that there is some percived pressure on her to "wear clothes well" especially as she has not adopted any causes or had any official speaking engagements yet. Basically her role as an official representative of the Royal family has barely begun. 

However, I believe that pressure may be all media induced, as I am certain the Royal family is hyper aware of recent history and the catastrophic events leading to Diana's death, many of which began with too much family and media pressure on her to be the perfect royal representative.

All this means that I think the Royal family are trying to ease her into her royal role very slowly and I read that the Queen will begin to give them official duties beginning in September.

It seems the media didn't get that message though and are already hounding the newly married couple with silly stuff like belly watching (looking for signs of pregnancy).

Maybe her decision not to regain the weight she lost for her wedding (something many brides do) is simply a smart move by her to quell the speculation on when / if they will start a family.

There's no rush after all.. it will be many, many, many years before they become King and Queen.

I heard that she's on the Dukan diet so she does watch what she eats and one day a week will only eat protein, my mum went on the same diet about the same sort of time and she's lost a lot of weight too, I think it's just her diet :)

I think she's hot.

I think that she is super super pretty. I think that she is kind of on the too - skinny side. But after the whole issue with the late Princess Lady Diana having bulimia, I read in a magazine that The Royal Family is trying to make sure that Kate does not go down the same route. The pressure of being The Duchess Of Cambridge has probably gotten to her, But they are trying to make sure she does not over do it. I read that in a past issue of: "Hello!."!.

Her smiling face was often seen at different Olympic venues; I think she was symbolic of just how well the London Olympics were presented.

Probably ultra high maintenance though.  I mean, Charles cheated on the mecha hot Princess Diana with a chick that looked like a wookie so imagine how bad the sex had to be with that high maintenance chick.  Princess Kate is probably the same way.  It's hard to get wild in the sack when you're walking around 24/7 with a stick up your ***.

depends on whose stick we're talking about

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
