Kate Middleton Weight Loss Cover Causes Serious Backlash!

kate middleton ok magazine cover post baby weight loss

Some people will just never get it!

We live in a society where people put lots of pressure on how women look, which is why it was so empowering that just one day after giving birth, Kate Middleton stepped out of St. Mary’s Hospital with a proud post-baby bump.

She didn’t try to hide it under a flouncy dress, but embraced it!

Well, on this same day, OK! Magazine published a cover boasting an exclusive interview with her trainer who said, “She’s super-fit — her stomach will shrink right back.”

Granted, they weren’t talking about how desperate she is to get back in shape, like Kim Kardashian was, but it’s still tasteless to bring it up so soon after a human person grew inside her body!

Katy Hill, a former Blue Peter presenter, was outraged and posted a pic of her own body two months after giving birth, encouraging new moms not to feel bad about the cover.


The editor of Parentdish, Tamsin Kelly, also spoke out about the cover, saying:

“For this magazine cover to be in UK shops on the same day Kate left hospital with her newborn baby is contemptible. For many TV and film stars being thin is part of their job, how they continue to get roles and make money – and therefore the rush to get back ‘in shape’ in an absurdly short amount of time is presented as a positive. It’s not. It’s unrealistic for the vast majority of new mothers, who simply don’t need this sort of media pressure – the Duchess of Cambridge included.”

The most important part about being a new mom is adjusting to a different lifestyle and making sure that baby is happy and healthy, no matter if you gave birth to Prince George of Cambridge or Jane Doe.

We’re all about being healthy and focusing on fitness, but this cover seems inappropriate.

Do U agree???

Is this cover out of line?

    That is normal to still have a bit of a bump after just delivering a baby. That will go away after time.

    It is really sad that it took the Dutchess' pregnancy for this website to finally acknowledge that post pregnancy weight gain is normal. Usually this website rags on every new mom who isn't losing weight or trying to lose weight IMMEDIATELY after giving birth.

    Re: Natalie – I agree. The media gives a ton of approval to women who do whatever it takes to get back in shape quickly - even if it means spending A LOT less time with their babies. Sad.

    I'm sorry, Perez…I don't come to this site to attack it or anything but…you do realize you're part of the problem you just complained about right?? I mean, I don't know how many articles I've seen on here praising people for getting back in shape really fast after giving birth or pointing out when they don't. I'm not blaming you, its sadly how the world works and one blogger standing up against it wouldn't change much but I just find it ridiculous to see you jumping on this when you yourself would post the same kind of article.

    Um, seriously? You do this same thing ALL THE TIME! You really do live in your own little world and think you are so innocent.

    The Duchess, in my opinion, gained a healthy amount of weight during her pregnancy and having a little bump after giving birth is perfectly normal, and her baby was born at a normal/healthy weight, which is what is important! Her body did and is doing what it is supposed to be doing! And more than likely, she'll lose the pregnancy belly within the next few weeks, trainer or not, so all these ignorant rags need to leave her weight alone!

    it was 24 hours after she gave birth! give the girl a break!

    Kate will lose her post baby belly in no time, and even if she doesn't, she is still a classy, beautiful woman and she will be a wonderful mom, and that's what matters, so yeah, this magazine was waaaaaay out of line, shame on them!!

    SMH….that person was never her trainer, and will never be. Ppl w direct access to the royal family NEVER speak to the press if the want to keep their job. My late grandfather made a comment abt my pouch the day after I got home from the hospital. Before I had a chance to respond, my Mom pulled me to the side and told me to be cool bc his generation expected you to be in a girdle and shrinking your belly in the hospital, so my jeans and tshirt look was look was to much for him. :p If more ppl stood up to say that rushing to lose weight RIGHTAFTER the baby was born was BAD (bc it is), maybe more new moms wouldn't be so stressed.

    Must you mention Kim Kardarsian..Dunno why you like critizing her.

    So, what Kate did, stepping out in the public eye 2 days after giving birth is awesome. Like the article said, she didn't try to hide her post baby belly, she embraced it. After giving birth most women's stomachs don't just pop right back into place, whether there's fat there or not. Obviously, Kate Middleton has an amazing body and her stomach is probably just her uterus, I believe, which hasn't shrunk back to size quite yet and nor should anyone have expected it too. Soon enough, she'll be back to her normal self and watch, then people will be saying she's dieting to hard or something else. Everyone always has something negative to say, even when it's a perfectly healthy young lady whose body is just reacting normally to giving birth!

    OMG those jerks. It is not like she is plastic that is fabricated for Hollywood. She just had a baby.

  14. Kristina says – reply to this


    xcuse me, what is all the fuss about? Is it that your all americans - i don't know…. seriously get a grip, have a baby and try it for yourself!

    Kate is likely laughing if she see these stupid head lines - however, I worry that she does not turn as Diana did to bulimia - mommy tummy is normal.

    Most women are fatasses and just use pregnancy as an excuse to eat even more, resulting in gaining much, much more weight than needed. You shouldn't be packing on 30+ pounds during a pregnancy..

  17. Alyson says – reply to this


    Her uterus is still huge. She had a bib baby. Good lord, give the woman some time.

  18. Alyson says – reply to this


    Re: NookiesWA – You're an idiot. I am sure she had very few extra pounds. Her uterus is still huge. It takes weeks and weeks for it to go back to normal. What is wrong with you?

  19. Dianne2250 says – reply to this


    Kate is such a sweet person. Why should any magazine comment on her post baby bump? Why try to hurt someone who seems to do nothing but be happy? Really, have we stooped so low as women that we attack each other. So what if she has that bump for the rest of her life. The Press destroyed Diana and Fergie, can you please leave Kate and William alone?

    it's yucky to criticise a girl for her weight or look two days once birthing, it takes six weeks for your body to revert to traditional and on doctors recommendation, new mums should not exercise before that! I would like these magazines used larger traditional girls to prevent this skinny obsession that sadly youngsters as young as eight square measure seeing and desirous to emulate.
