Prince William and Princess Kate may have been asked to step on the scales after Christmas lunch as part of a bizarre royal family tradition.
Kate Middleton and Prince William may have been weighed by the King after their Christmas lunch.
As part of a bizarre tradition once carried out by the Queen, the new monarch had reportedly planned to ask the Prince and Princess of Wales to “weigh themselves”.
In 2018, royal expert Ingrid Seward told Grazia that the Queen would ask each of her guests to step on the scales, The Sun reports.
But it was merely done to ensure the guests are all having fun and being “well fed”.

As the royal Christmas Day festivities revolve around eating – with a turkey dinner and all the trimmings being served, all members of the family take part in the odd but fun tradition.
King Charles is said to be continuing the unusual tradition.
Queen Elizabeth II used to give her dogs special treatment on Christmas Day as well.
Before the Queen passed, she always made sure her beloved corgis received special treatment too.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady said Her Majesty’s dogs were given the freshest local produce.
