The Rise of the Post-Modern Princess?

The Rise of the Postmodern Princess

I just got done reading this great article. It's about the Postmodern Princess, and gives examples about all of your favorite royal ladies of the time (Mette-Marit, Mathilde, Marie-Chantal), and would really be great in a couple of other threads **cough cough Letizia thread**. But it's something I noticed around half-way down or so.

It says that Queen Silvia told Victoria to "eat fewer burgers". Has anyone else heard this? It was a bit disturbing, especially knowing about Victoria's eating disorder. Could this comment have helped start her anorexia? Or did she even make the comment at all?

There are many factors that would lead one to develop anorexia besides a Mom telling her daughter to "eat fewer burgers." Believe me I know.

Correct if I am wrong, but wasn't it due to harsh criticisms in the press that was one of the main contributing reasons Victoria developed an eating disorder?

Here, post #28, is a longer article from People Magazine addressing the issue originally posted by Lena. The "burger" quote
"The weekly women's magazine Svensk Dam Tidning (which noted last year that the princess looked as if she had "eaten too many hamburgers")...

Queen Silvia didnt tell Crown Princess Victoria to "eat fewer burgers". Thats a lie.

If you read the articles, you will see that the yellow press brought "the burgers" up.

By the way, happy new year to everybody
