Is Prince William Really Worried About Kate Middleton’s ‘Plunging Weight’ Amid Harry and Meghan Drama?

There is no doubt that Prince William and Kate Middleton are under a lot of stress. Between Prince Andrew’s sex scandal and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down as senior royals, there is a lot on the couple’s plate at the moment. But is William really worried about Kate’s “plunging weight” as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare for another year of royal appointments?

Prince William worried about Kate Middleton’s weight loss

With Harry and Meghan ditching the royal spotlight, there is no denying that William and Kate are feeling the pressure. The two will no doubt shoulder more responsibility in the coming years, which will add even more events to their already packed schedules.

Because of this added stress, a source claims that Kate has been shedding a lot of weight over the past few weeks — and William reportedly wants to put an end to it.

According to Radar Online, the unnamed source claims that Prince William desperately told Kate to put on some weight. The insider says that Kate has been starving herself and William wants her to get healthier so they can have another child.

“She’s working herself into the ground and skipping meals an awful lot,” the source claimed. “As much as he tries not to nag her, William is gently pointing out it’s time to do something about this bad habit she’s gotten into, particularly as they’re trying for another baby in 2020.”

The source added that Kate Middleton’s weight has been an issue for years, though nobody has addressed it until now. They also noted that Prince William wants Kate to gain at least seven pounds in the near future.

Is the Duchess of Cambridge really scary skinny?

Despite what the unnamed source says, there is no evidence to back up the claims that Kate is actually struggling with weight issues. In fact, Kate has always been on the thin side and has looked completely normal in recent engagements.

As royal watchers are aware, Kate shed her baby weight in record time after all three of her pregnancies. She has also shown remarkable consistency in her weight over the years, which is due to a good diet and regular exercise.

Kate Middleton has been very open about what she eats and how much she works out over the years. Although she has always been skinny, she has never faced this much scrutiny over her weight.

We do not know why Kate is being attacked over her weight, but it probably has something to do with all the drama the royals have faced in recent months. Unfortunately, the rumors will likely continue until things settle down.

Prince William and Kate Middleton greet fans

While William and Kate deal with all the drama, they recently enjoyed their first public engagement since Harry and Meghan’s bombshell exit.

The Cambridges attended an event in Bradford at the Centenary Square and were warmly greeted by hundreds of fans. They also mingled with employers and students at the town’s city hall in what turned out to be a very positive event.

The public appearance was the couple’s first since Harry and Meghan announced that they are stepping down from their royal duties.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seemed in good spirits during the appearance but remained mum on the upheaval within the royal family.

Prince William and Prince Harry slam bully rumors

Amid all the drama, rumors surfaced that the real reason Harry and Meghan left the royal family was because of William’s bullying ways.

To help combat those reports, William and Harry released a joint statement condemning the idea that bullying had anything to do with Harry and Meghan’s exit.

“Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge,” the brothers stated.

The pair noted that they are both huge advocates of mental health and were deeply offended by the rumors.

At the start of the year, Harry and Meghan announced plans to step down as senior members of the royal family. The pair also revealed that they want to become financially independent from the crown and are setting up a second home base in Canada.

William has reportedly been in talks with Harry, Prince Charles, and Queen Elizabeth, about his brother’s exit. Her Majesty recently released a statement in support of Harry and Meghan’s decision, which includes spending part of the year in Canada.

Prince William has not commented on the reports surrounding Kate’s alleged weight loss. Considering the credibility of the rumors, it is unlikely that he would ever even acknowledge them.
