Zoe – who previously spoke about wrestling with both anorexia and bulimia – opened the difficult subject for the cover story of the July issue of British Vogue as she said: & # 39; I think it comes from a lot of things.

On New Year's Eve, she decided that there was finally enough.
& # 39; I just felt it was different. I don't know if a f ** royal spirit came over me and said: & # 39; & # 39; You have to stop. & # 39; & # 39;
