How Does Kate Middleton Stay in Shape?
The royal family is constantly under scrutiny, but there are a few royals who manage to always stay on the public and press’s good side. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is one such royal.
Duchess Kate has been beloved by the people since well before her marriage to Prince William in 2011. The public loves learning more about the Duchess of Cambridge, including her secrets to always looking poised and fabulous.
Keep reading to learn how Middleton always manages to stay in great shape, including what she eats in a day and how she prefers to work out.
What is Kate Middleton’s diet?
While living in the royal family can certainly be stressful from time to time, that doesn’t mean that Middleton is always reaching for sweets to help her cope. In fact, Duchess Kate is known to stick to a very strict diet and mainly eats low-carb. She likes to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and generally steers clear of very starchy foods, much like Queen Elizabeth II.
If the duchess is trying to slim down, as she did after the births of each of her three children, she reportedly chooses a raw diet. A raw diet includes standards like vegetables, but also plenty of fresh and filling snacks like almonds, tabbouleh, and goji berries.
The Duchess of Cambridge certainly has access to the freshest produce, as a member of the royal family. Still, Duchess Kate doesn’t deny herself of treats around the holiday season and indulges along with the rest of the family when it is time to sit down to the big royal family holiday feast. She probably knows that cutting out all treats would make for a boring routine.
What is Kate Middleton’s favorite exercise?
When Duchess Kate and Prince William first met at university, they bonded over their shared love of outdoor sports. Even though they have three young children now, and a great deal more responsibilities, they still make time to get out and get active.
Middleton stays trim by choosing to do a lot of her exercise outside and has been spotted running and jogging, sometimes pushing a baby stroller in the process. Other outdoor activities that Middleton enjoys include rowing, swimming, and skiing.
The royal family has access to an incredible indoor gym as well, and when she doesn’t have time to commit to an entire workout, Duchess Kate will often head there to swim, do weight training, or take a spin on the elliptical machine. Of course, she also has three small children to consider, and it’s no small feat to keep up with them.
In fact, when recently asked how she manages to stay so fit, Middleton stated that she’s always “running after” her children. She and Prince William like getting their kids outside as well, and have frequently been spotted playing with their kids in parks and recreational areas.
Kate Middleton has great genetics
Recently, Express reported that Middleton has picked up a new hobby: tennis lessons at an exclusive London club. Reportedly, Duchess Kate has gotten quite good at playing, and her regular lessons have contributed to her fit and slender figure.
Still, there’s another factor that contributes to Middleton’s astonishing figure. She definitely comes from good genetics, and a quick glance at her mother, Carole Middleton, and her sister, Pippa Middleton, reveal that health and good looks certainly run in the family. Middleton is no slouch at taking care of herself, but genetics often do play a role in how quickly women can “bounce back” after children and maintain a healthy weight.
