Sarah, Duchess of York
As the wife of a Royal Navy Officer, Sarah was home alone a lot, and husband Prince Andrew was away for most of her first pregnancy with Princess Beatrice. The duchess tried to cope by comfort eating, later writing in her memoir My Story, "The more upset I grew at Andrew's absence, the more I grew in general. I drowned my sorrows in mayonnaise, sausage rolls, and smoked mackerel paté sandwiches. I got bigger and bigger. My hands and ankles swelled. I felt like an elephant, ugly and grotesque." Sarah reported that her second pregnancy (with Princess Eugenie) was easier, until after an upsetting altercation with palace courtiers the baby moved into a breech position.
