Kate Middleton's Weight Prompts Absurdist SpeculationMargaret Hartmann3/10/11 2:04pmFiled to: Weighty IssuesKate middleton weightKate middleton too skinnyKate MiddletonRoyalsCelebrityAppicTop252EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkYesterday the Associated Press published an article about Kate Middleton and Prince William's surprise visit to Northern Ireland. There's no mention of why they were there, or what they did, because the entire focus of article is whether or not Kate Middleton is too skinny. For several months the tabloids have been publishing items about Kate Middleton slimming down before her wedding, like the Radar Online story about her grueling "Wedding Dress Workout." This type of bullshit exposé on celebrity eating and exercise habits is de rigueur for the tabloids. We don't expect a story with as much journalistic merit as "best and worst beach bodies" from the Associated Press.
