OK! Magazine apologises for Kate ‘weight loss’ cover

OK! Magazine apologises for Kate ‘weight loss’ coverOK! Magazine apologises for Kate ‘weight loss’ cover

OK! Magazine has publicly apologised for a controversial cover depicting the Duchess of Cambridge which implied that the princess needed to lose weight, just days after giving birth.

Headlined ‘Kate’s post-baby weight loss regime’ the piece elicited an instant negative reaction on Twitter as readers queued up to denounce the cover.

This has led to call for a boycott of the title, led by TV presenter Katy Hill, as angry mums vow to leave OK! Languishing on the shelves from here on in.

In the wake of this a spokeswoman for Northern & Shell, the magazine’s publisher, said: “Kate is one of the great beauties of our age and OK! readers love her.

"Like the rest of the world, we were very moved by her radiance as she and William introduced the Prince of Cambridge to the world.We would not dream of being critical of her appearance.

"If that was misunderstood because of our cover it was not intended."

Not OK! Obnoxious story (regardless of who it's written about...I'm no royalist). How crass and cynical to zoom in on her face to try to make it appear 'fat'. Idiots. I'll continue not to buy OK! for this and many other reasons.

I don't actually see any element of apology in that statement at all.

Thats not an apology and im afraid too little too late. I for one, as a mum of two is fed up reading about how this celebrity has lost their baby weight so quickly. Its not real life! I took time to enjoy my babies instead of focusing on a tredmill and counting calories! OK magazine has gone to the dogs!
