Has Kate Middleton Lost Too Much Weight?

"It's like some sort of dark fairytale. A beautiful young woman marries the heir to the throne and starts to get thinner and thinner. Until one day we look and she's not there at all." - The Belfast (UK) Daily Telegraph

It's no secret that Kate Middleton looks thinner than in years past. But the trend - real or perceived - has become a cause for alarm to many royal watchers.

Should we be worried that Kate is too thin?

Reports that she is being held up as a role model on pro-anorexia websites - there scarily are such things - has turned the spotlight on her weight more than ever.

Observers reckon that the young woman who was once a healthy size 10-12 is now a UK size 4 - or, as it's known in the US, Size 0 - though this is not confirmed.

There is no doubt that Duchess Catherine has not "always been" as slender as she is now, but is it cause for concern? Or just tabloids looking to stir up drama?

What do you think: Is Kate Middleton too thin?

I think it's normal with all that stress. I'm normally thin, but one month before i got married i became one size smaller WITHOUT DIET! I kept eating chocolate and coke and fritos because i was so stressed and nervous. Probably when Kate gets used to the attention she'll recover a healthier size

Why are we spending so much time on this? She has enough going on and so many changes to handle in her life than to worry about another country's perception of her weight.
