Katie thinks Wills' wife needs to put on a few pounds

Kate Middleton has been criticised by American journalist Katie Couric for being ‘so thin’.

Katie would love to have Prince William‘s stunning wife as a guest on her new TV chat show, to ask her about life as a member of the Royal Family – and her weight.

‘I think it would be really interesting to interview Kate Middleton because I think she has comported herself so well since she has been thrust in the limelight,’ Katie tells SheKnows.com.

‘Although, I think she needs to eat more because she’s so thin.’

With that kind of comment, Katie is very unlikely to tempt Kate onto her sofa, but she did chat to Wills and Prince Harry in May about the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the Queen.

‘As I learned from growing up, you don’t mess with your grandmother,’ Wills, 30, confided.

But Harry was keen to emphasise the softer side of his granny.

‘Behind closed doors, she’s our grandmother,’ he told Katie. ‘It’s as simple as that.’
