Kate Middleton Weight Loss Tabloid Cover: Too Soon?

by at . Comments

A tabloid is under scrutiny for a cover story about Kate Middleton's alleged post-baby weight loss regime ... released the same day she gave birth.

The UK version of OK! came out Monday with a photo of the new royal mom on the cover and the headline "Kate's Post-Baby Weight Loss Regime."

Promoting an interview with someone described as her trainer, the story claims Kate Middleton is "super fit ... her stomach will shrink straight back."

Many people felt that the story was a little too soon (to say the least) and puts pressure on new moms to instantly lose the baby weight they put on.

The cover quickly sparked a Twitter backlash, including from TV and radio presenter Katy Hill, who tweeted a photo of her own post-baby body.

"I think all mums should boycott @OK_Magazine for this cover ONE DAY after Kate Middleton has given birth. REALLY? #RoyalBaby," Hill tweeted.

"New Mums. If the @OK_Magazine #Kate cover has made you feel bad, here's me 2 months post baby. YOU MADE A HUMAN! x," she added.

Tamsin Kelly, editor of Parentdish, said: "For this magazine to be in UK shops on the very same day Kate left hospital with her baby is contemptible."

"Women who do get back in shape fast may have an entourage of trainers, nutrition experts and most importantly, someone to care for their baby."

The celebrity gossip publication responded in a statement, claiming it did not intend to offend anyone, but stopping short of issuing an apology.

"Kate is one of the great beauties of our age and readers love her," a spokeswoman for Northern & Shell, the parent company of OK! said.

"Like the rest of the world, we were very moved by her radiance as she and Prince William introduced the Prince of Cambridge to the world."

"We would not dream of being at all critical of her appearance."

"If that was misunderstood on our cover it was not intended."

Sure thing, OK! Your heartfelt intentions will never again be questioned.

On the bright side, nothing can take away from the grace and glow Kate while providing the world with the first Royal Baby photos Tuesday. We heart her.


kate wore an ugly cheap dress ugly wedges, she looked like a hospital cleaner, willy looked like a police escort, what a freaky show! DIANA and charles looked liike royals


Good thing she is motivated to lose weight. Best of luck to her. When I was trying to lose fat I had to control my carb intake. If you cleanse your body of carbs then it will start to burn its own stored fat. To do this I completed the '21-Day Sugar Detox' cleanse. I have lost my sugar cravings and am getting leaner everyday. If you’re interested read this review I found. http://smartsean.com/21-day-su...


She wore the cheapest looking dress. I thought at first she was still in a hospital gown, and those horrid and bizarre,high wedgie shoes that I'm amazed she didn't trip in. Then in the car on their way to her mother's {who seems to be running the marriage as well as pimping kate out to start with 10 years ago}, she was wearing no make up and didn't bother with her appearance in the least. Compare that to gorgeous Diana after William was born. William didn't even wear a jacket to introduce his son...these two are a disappointment as far as how they display themselves. Nothing much "royal" about them. They're making a mistake with that. Check out photos of Diana and Charles with baby William outside the same hospital. They did the public introduction better, with more class.

What a load of shite! she had a baby less than 24 hours prior to that appearence, royal or not who can be bothered sorting makeup/hair and a fancy outfit. I took my daughter home in my pajamas because i was too exhausted to care what I looked like. You should be ashamed of yourself,. I however thought she looked like a beautiful, glowing new mother.


This is garbage. The woman JUST had a baby. STFU!


Really? She barely gained any weight!! All I can tell that's any bigger is her stomach. What crap! Anytime any celebrity has a baby the first thing I see in tabloids is how they're just dying to lose the weight. Ugh.


Kate, please don't pay any attention to this. FAT AMERICANS ARE JUST JEALOUS!!

"OK! is a British weekly magazine specialising in celebrity news. Originally launched as a monthly, its first issue was published in April 1993. " What do fat Americans have to do with this? As I do feel this is tacky. You should know facts.
