“The very reason that people get upset when Middleton comes under any scrutiny – her royalty – is the same reason her impossibly tiny waist does kind of matter. She’s a princess. She married a prince in a fairy tale ceremony that was really only missing the chipper cartoon birds and little forest animals. Little girls look up to princesses, and they adore Kate Middleton. They want to be her. She’s their vision of perfection, not Christina Hendricks, which is too bad.
But that’s not really Kate Middleton’s fault or even her concern. Quips like Katie Couric’s may be on our minds, and they may even be true. In the end though, Kate Middleton’s diet is really none of our business. Maybe she’s stressed. Maybe she’s pregnant. Maybe we should spend less time scrutinizing female bodies so we can accept our own.”
