Prince Edward - the new Duke of Edinburgh - looks ill.

Check out these photos from their visit to Edinburgh. His shirt collar is loose and he looks very very thin.

Well obviously his mother never cooked him a good meal in his life!

He looks positively Karen Carpenter like.

He was a handsome young man in his youth, but he literally looks like the life has been drained out him.

Maybe the poor guy is dying. That could be why Charles decided to make him Duke of Edinburgh.... "Ah well, he'll only be Duke of Edinburgh for a year at the most and I'm fine with that."

His father was tall and very thin.

by Anonymousreply 13March 13, 2023 6:06 PM

A couple of us noticed it this weekend on DoE thread. Maybe he's on some ridiculous keto diet?

by Anonymousreply 14March 13, 2023 6:16 PM

He might still be in mourning over the loss of his mother. Or maybe he's truly quite ill and keeping that to himself. It's either one of the two.

I tell you all what, though, his looks hit the wall quick! He was really handsome in his youth.

He's lost a lot of weight recently. That suit is pretty much hanging off of him.

by Anonymousreply 16March 13, 2023 6:27 PM

He's loaded up with inbred genes and half a century of a British diet and climate.

Trust me, they all look like that.

HRH Princess a was soooo pretty in the late 80's. She was the "best stagehand" on Broadway She and Michael Ball were sooo pretty together. England's favorite young Talented English Rose. Very talented throat!!

In the pic @R18, Kate looks like she's gained just a squidge of weight.

Looks good on her.

She had half a biscuit before leaving the house.

It must that green olive she had for lunch yesterday, r23.

I truly hope he’s okay in terms of his health.

We don’t know him but many of us from personal experience know what a sick person looks like: “wasting away” and “gaunt” come to mind when looking at recent photos…like a tortoise minus the shell.

by Anonymousreply 26March 19, 2023 12:43 AM

Edward looks like he's lost a good 10 pounds if not more. Maybe 20 pounds. That kind of weight loss is either grief as others have suggested or illness. I am going with grief and stress. BRF doesn't seem to get sick until later on. He's too young for illness.

by Anonymousreply 27March 19, 2023 12:45 AM

What gets me is Edward looks grey, r26. Like, as in no colour. Gaunt and no colour. Kind of frightening. Sophie is still - normal looking - and she was pretty grief stricken in September.

by Anonymousreply 28March 19, 2023 12:51 AM

My, he's just (facial) wasting away. I wonder why . . .

He looks like someone who just went through chemo or radiation honestly.

by Anonymousreply 31March 19, 2023 1:12 AM

He does look older than his age. But sometimes shit happens.

by Anonymousreply 32March 19, 2023 1:14 AM

It looks to me like he’s battling some form of cancer. I’m sure he misses his mother, but she lived to extreme old age and her death probably didn’t destroy him to the extent he looks like he’s dying himself.

by Anonymousreply 33March 19, 2023 1:25 AM

Hope you're wrong r33 but he does not look good. Photo of him swimming in his shirt and collar.

He’s a spitting image (!) of George VI in photos from early 1952. The resemblance is jarring, especially in the picture at R4.

Didn’t DL fave and inveterate fashion icon Lady Colin Campbell claim QEII died of a form of cancer?

by Anonymousreply 36March 19, 2023 2:13 AM

If you compare Edward to how Charles and Andrew look, there must be something wrong with Edward.

He's pale and gaunt, while Charles and Andrew still have a pinkish complexion and plump, healthy bodies.

Under that suit, Edward must be skin and bones.

Something is definitely wrong with him, health wise.

Chadwick Boseman was the same way before he died of cancer.

How much grieving can you do for a 96-year-old’s death?

by Anonymousreply 44June 30, 2023 7:47 PM

He looks very thin, but I'm used to seeing that family looking wrinkly and aged, like that.

Andrew and the Queen had some extra weight on them, so that mitigates the wrinkly look.

by Anonymousreply 45June 30, 2023 10:10 PM

He looked ill at the Queens funeral. Too thin and pale. He has become even thinner. Sincere good wishes for his health. He seems like a very nice, humble man. Rare for a Royal.

by Anonymousreply 46June 30, 2023 10:29 PM

His jacket is too large, which accentuates the weight loss.

by Anonymousreply 47June 30, 2023 11:23 PM

I agree, R46.
