Kate Middleton fitness: How Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ mum stays in shape
Kate Middleton is big into her fitness, after playing sports throughout her childhood and teen years.
Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their third royal baby, Prince Louis, on April 23.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge now have three youngsters on their hands, with Prince George, four, at school and Princess Charlotte having turned three on May 2.
But Kate still manages to keep on track with her fitness and has been pictured on numerous occasions getting involved in various sports games at charity events and royal engagements.
So just how does Kate stay so trim?
Kate and Prince William are said to be fans of making healthy, home-cooked meals as a family.
Kensington Palace chef told Racked in 2016 the couple didn’t require a chef in their house, as the Duchess is used to cooking for herself having grown up in a normal household.
This means Catherine is able to control what she eats, opting for healthy dishes packed with vegetables and nutritious ingredients.
Kate is said to be “an exercise junkie”, according to a Daily Mail insider.
The mum of three played sports throughout her childhood and teenage years, and she and sister Pippa Middleton are said to be hugely into their fitness.
As well as being an avid skiier, Kate was a cross-country runner and hockey player at school, but had a particular passion for tennis.
The mum of three is also lucky in that she has excellent genetics, thanks to her mum Carole, 63, who has a very trim figure.
Her go-to exercise is the plank, while her proper workout regime is apparently CrossFit, which includes ruthless resistance training varying from functional movements performed at high intensity to weightlifting and running.
While Kate has never spoken out about whether she breastfeeds, she is known to have worn dresses designed to help new mums breastfeed.
The Queen and Princess Diana both breastfed, so it is likely the 36 year old has followed suit.
Vanessa Christie, Lactation Consultant and Expert Speaker at The Baby Show has previously explained to OK! Online breastfeeding helps contract the uterus more quickly down to its pre-pregnancy size.
The process of breastfeeding also helps to burn 200-500 calories per day.
