As a mother of three and one of the most recognised (and judging by her diary, busiest) women in the world, it must be pretty tough for Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, to find the time and place to work out – but she surely does.
It's widely known that the Princess is naturally very athletic and a big fan of spending time in the great outdoors – something she's discussed during interviews previously – and given her senior royal status, you might expect that she eats pretty darn well too (and you would be correct).
Of course, while there should never be a 'one size fits all' approach when it comes to health, seeing as we're all individual humans, it can still be interesting to learn more about how other people (royalty included) eat and exercise. It's also important to stress that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, colours and creeds – this article isn't to say 'WE MUST ALL LOOK LIKE KATE MIDDLETON', but rather a little nosey into a public figure's lifestyle that you can cherry pick bits from, should it take your fancy...
So, with that in mind, and while in search of inspiration, we set out to uncover as much as we could about how Kate Middleton moves her body and the diet she opts for:
What is Kate Middleton's exercise regime?
1.She fits exercise in around her busy schedule
Recently, Kate admitted to having a competitive streak in her – something it appears she's passed on to her three children; George, Charlotte and Louis, too. If you didn't already know, Kate is a patron of the Rugby Football League (as of February 2022) and when chatting to the England Rugby team, she let everyone in on the fun way she's keeping fit with her kids in tow – and it's probably not what you'd imagine.
The Princess revealed that she likes to join in with her royal offspring when jumping on their trampoline, sometimes before the school run. Yes, Kate! 'It’s running around after the children... Whenever I can squeeze in exercise, I do. Even jumping on the trampoline with my children before school.'
BRB, just buying a trampoline...
2. She is a regular at the gym
Apologies in advance to anyone hoping to catch a glimpse of the princess in their local PureGym, as it's reported that while Kate is a fan of a gym sesh, she prefers to head to the swanky Harbour Club in Chelsea (where her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, was also a member). Keen to join yourself? It's said to cost £1555 to register and then £325 every month thereafter. Phew! There's also a gym handily located in Kensington Palace, should Kate not wish to stray too far from home.
An anonymous source once told Daily Mail, 'Kate takes her toned physiques exceptionally seriously. The Princess is reportedly also a fan of CrossFit and yoga, makes time to go for a run most days, enjoys cycling, and does most of her workouts without a personal trainer.'
3. She plays tennis
Not only is the princess a regular at Wimbledon (and a patron of the Lawn Tennis Association), but she also seems to be a dab hand with a tennis racket herself, even recently teaming up for a game alongside champion Emma Raducanu. Good job she has her own court at Anmer Hall then, which it's reported she frequents daily with her children when they're staying in their Norfolk residence.
A royal insider said, 'Once their school work from Thomas’s Battersea has been dealt with satisfactorily, both George and Charlotte enjoy tennis lessons on their green court. Kate plays almost daily with the children and they like their practice sessions with her.'
4. She walks
The Waleses often discuss the importance of spending time in nature as a family, which means William and Kate are big fans of taking long walks together, along with their three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
5. She runs
From an early age (it's reported that Kate was a fan of cross country at school) and just like her sister, Pippa Middleton, Kate is a known running fan, something that no doubt helps her to stay fit and healthy, whilst getting a nice cardio hit in.
6. She skis
Even on holiday Kate is keen to stay active – she and Prince William have been on multiple skiing trips together, with the princess thought to be a very competent skier. In fact, the Waleses made their public debut as a couple on a ski trip in Klosters, Switzerland, all the way back in April 2004.

7. She drinks smoothies
According to previous reports, Kate likes to start her day with a vitamin hit by indulging in a whizzed-up smoothie. 'She drinks smoothies morning and afternoon, containing spirulina, kale, matcha (a finely ground green tea powder), spinach, romaine, cilantro and blueberries,' a source once told the Daily Mail.
8. She enjoys home cooking
Plenty of reports praise Kate for being somewhat of a pro in the kitchen, saying that some of her go-to recipes include soups, curries and roast chicken (meaning the Waleses likely avoid ready meals that can often contain a lot of salt or saturated fat). 'In the evenings she indulges her hobby of cooking William's favourite supper, roast chicken,' says a report from Vanity Fair. The Princess is also known to be a keen baker, having let slip that her youngest, Prince Louis, is a big fan of Mary Berry, having seen her face around the home on Kate's very own recipe books.
Whilst appearing on Mary's A Berry Royal Christmas, Kate also admitted, 'I love making [birthday] cakes. It's become a bit of a tradition that I stay up 'til midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much. But I love it.'
9. She eats sushi
Known to be one of the healthier options to grab while on the go or eating out, sushi is a big hit with both Kate and Prince William. When the royal couple took a visit to Japan House London, to meet chef Shimizu Akira, William remarked upon sampling some salmon sashimi, 'Very impressive. Thank you very much. My wife and I love sushi. We might have to come down here for lunch when no one else is in.'
