The Duchess of York has spoken out over press criticism of her daughter Beatrice. Sarah Ferguson’s anger was provoked after a newspaper columnist published unflattering remarks about Princess Beatrice, after she was photographed wearing a bikini. Various other tabloids followed suit. Describing Beatrice as a “fit and healthy size 10”, Sarah blasted the press for the horrible remarks they had made about Bea and stated that they should take some responsibility for their behaviour. I have to agree with that. Just because Beatrice is a Princess and is in the public eye, it doesn’t give the press the right to criticize her. Unfortunately it’s one of the downsides to being in the public eye and a member of the Royal family, as Fergie knows only too well. Members of the Royal family deserve their privacy just like the rest of us and should be allowed to live their lives without the constant intrusion of long lenses.
Fergie, a spokesperson for Weight Watchers in the U.S. has proved a great success with the British viewing public after her show, “The Duchess in Hull”, was aired on ITV1. The show features the Duchess offering help and advice to an overweight family in Hull on how to improve their diet and lifestyle. ITV1 are said to be in talks with the Duchess about doing further tv projects.
