What Powers Does the Queen of England Actually Have?
So, Uh, the Royal Family Is Supposedly Weighed Before and After Christmas Dinner
As if spending the holidays with your royal in-laws isn't stressful enough, Meghan Markle and her mom, Doria Ragland, will reportedly have to take part in the CRINGIEST royal family tradition ever: Getting weighed before and after Christmas dinner.
This strange bit of royals trivia comes fromMajestyeditor Ingrid Seward and the new issue ofGrazia. They claim the tradition dates back to King Edward VII's reign. Apparently, King Edward VII was intensely concerned about people's health and whether or not they were eating enough on Christmas. That's sweet and all, but these days the royal family enjoys about three gigantic meals on Christmas day, so the scale seems highly unnecessary.
According to Seward andGrazia, the royals choose to continue this tradition using antique scales, but who knows whether the Queen herself shifts the scale weights back and forth. I guess no one has shouted, "Enough already!" after all these years, but it's 2019, so maybe Meghan and Doria will be those heroes.
Of course, this isn't a law put into place by Parliament, so if the rumor is actually true, the Christmas weighing tradition would be entirely voluntary and without risk of being sent to the stocks.
