royal eating disorders
« on: May 17, 2007, 10:51:50 AM »
We all know about Princess Diana's bulimia. And I did read back in 8th grade in the National Enquirer, and People Magazine about Princess Victoria of Sweden having anorexia and that was first exposure to her and I actually found her attractive. And we also know about Fergie's binge eating/weight gain. Is it common for these women to have eating disorders or is it just a few of them?

Diana did mainly binge and purge(Bulimia) but there was a few times where she wasn't eating(Anorexia), she would just push her food around her plate. She passed out once on a tour once,(some said it was the heat) but most said it was from not eating. Diana's sister was Anorexic, when she was younger, I think it was during the period she was dating Charles, years before he dated Diana.

From Wikepedia:
After giving birth, Diana dropped 30 pounds from her 5-foot 10-inch frame, according to a People correspondent, "leaving it lean and elegant - a splendid rack for the designer rags she assembled with impressive taste. Almost overnight a pretty girl was transformed into a statuesque belle." Around that time, reports alleging that Diana suffered from anorexia nervosa first began to surface.

Oh so apparently Charles has a habit of complaining about the weight of his SO's. So I really do hope Prince William and Prince Harry don't follow suit.

Kate did start dropping a lot of weight when she started dating William, not sure why?

Yeah I heard and noticed. I like to think it wasn't something William said but more of she was thrust into the spotlight and thought she saw a fat/unflattering picture of herself. I'm sure she's seen those extra skinny models in the fashion show and maybe some of the girls Wills dated before or other girls around her at Jigsaw.

We know Kate's common but she was in the media quite a bit due to her relationship with William. Thus the media attention could have caused her to have an eating disorder.

The biggest issue is that the media requires that each and every Royal look like a model of style, poise, and perfection. On the other hand, they are blamed if children develop eating disorders because they promote an unrealistic standard of beauty.

No wonder she was such a mess. Diana was expected to not so much be Royal, but a celebrity figure so PEOPLE magazine would have a legitimate reason to cover her in their magazines. Disgusting really.

Thanks. If people would study history more, they would realize that while a lot of Royalty wasn't conventionally attractive, their personalities and self sacrificec more than made up for it. I mean, the Queen Mother wasn't stick thin and she did so darn much, even though she could have easily retired to a luxurious private life.

Are there Royals in other countries beside Great Britain who have eating disorders?

Its hardly surprising in today's world that some women in the public eye should, if there's a genetic predispostion, or mental health problems in a family, be likely to develop an eating disorder. There is enonromous pressure in the media for women to be unnaturally thin, I've seen actresses who were critiicsed for putting on weight when pregnant and having to get back to a "pre pregnancy weight as soon as possible.
Its quite ridiculous.  Diania's sister had an eating disorder, there is a lot of depression in her family, hardly surprising that when under strain, she became bulimic.
Victoria seems to have developd hers when she startd to become a working royal, and I think there was an unhappy love affair. probably she was criticised in the papers for not being thin enough and started to diet...
