Is Kate Middleton's Diet Healthy?

Kate Middleton seems like a super human. Whether it's her impeccable style, ability to navigate the royal family with grace, or her on-point mom moves, the Duchess of Cambridge makes her mark on the world with everyone. In other words, the so-called "Kate Middleton Effect" is real. Her clothes sell out quicker than photos of her appear online, and her ability to quickly bounce back to peak physical shape after not one, but three babies is life goals.

Middleton's physique is something you can't help but notice, and we're here to shine a brighter light on it. Sure, Prince William's wife has always had a good figure, but now, three children later, fans of the duchess have taken even more notice of her killer body. The question we have is whether or not Middleton's diet is safe. Before we can answer that let's see what her diet and workout regimen consists of, because whatever she's doing, it's working.

What's on the menu for Kate Middleton's healthy diet?

According to the Daily Mail, Kate Middleton is definitely a healthy eater, beginning with her morning routine. The tabloid reported that the duchess is known for making a morning smoothie and following it up with a "rich in antioxidants" salad for lunch. The same publication revealed in a separate report that "at least one day a week," Middleton usually opts for "nothing but raw food," like watermelon salads and ceviche, which allegedly helps her "achieve radiant skin" and maintain her figure.

When the duchess was having morning sickness during one of her pregnancies, she reportedly turned to food hypnotherapy to help her gain the weight she needed to put on for a healthy pregnancy. Despite feeling constantly sick, and likely not even wanting to eat at all, Middleton stuck to a "wholesome diet" which included "avocados, berries, oatmeal," and more, according to her friend, Jessica Hay, who spoke with New Idea Magazine (via Delish). 

Not only does Middleton eat healthy for herself, but she also loves to share her foodie gifts with friends and loved ones, according to a 2012 Vanity Fair report. A source speaking with the magazine claimed that Middleton does most of her own grocery shopping, makes "pots of fruit jam" as Christmas gifts, and enjoys eating "William's favorite," roast chicken, for dinner. Oh, and the duo reportedly enjoys a night out at their local pub every now and then with William drinking a pint and Kate drinking a glass of white wine. 

Does Kate Middleton actually cook her own meals?

Over the years, it's become clear that Kate Middleton has kept a lot of her non-royal traits, one of the biggest being her need for normalcy in her home. She does this by reportedly cooking most of her family's meals, despite her access to the top chefs who work for the royal family. 

"Kate does quite a lot of the cooking at the moment," British chef Carolyn Robb (who worked at Kensington Palace for decades) told Racked in 2015. "You have to remember that she's not royal. She comes from a normal background and a normal home where she's always cooked for herself. And what I've always heard is that William enjoys spending time with her family because they just eat together at the kitchen table like a normal family. I'm sure that that's what they still do."

In 2016, the duchess confirmed the daily cooking rumors about herself while attending a charity gala with her husband. "William has to put up with my cooking most of the time," Kate Middleton reportedly told a group of premiere chefs at a charity event, per Express. Prince William quickly added, "It's the reason I'm so skinny!" Well, there you have it, Middleton is a regular mom, who cooks and even gets heckled by those who have to eat it!

When it comes to her workout routine, Kate Middleton is just as regimented. "Kate is an exercise junkie. [Her sister] Pippa [Middleton] and Kate take their toned physiques extremely seriously. And mother Carole [Middleton], in her 60s, is in extremely good shape," a source told the Daily Mail. The outlet additionally reported that Kate's intense workouts, described as "almost army fitness level," involve running (with her kids in tow), doing CrossFit and planks, and mixing in yoga and pilates to keep things fresh. What's most impressive? She reportedly does it all without a trainer. 

She does however workout with her sister Pippa Middleton a lot. "They worked hard in the gym at Kensington Palace, starting with cardio warm-ups, hip raises, diagonal and reverse lunges, stomach crunches, squats, calf raises, bridges and push-ups," an source dished to the Mail.

The duchess has always been athletic, which is why when she does go on world tours as a part of the royal family, she is quick to jump in on all the sporty fun. She has a soft spot for skiing no matter what the location, was a rower in school (and still does it in the gym), and grew up playing tennis among other sports. Nowadays she is keeping herself busy by running around with her three little ones, and eating clean as much as possible. 

All in all, the duchess seemingly does everything she can to keep her body healthy and happy, and there are no apparent red flags about her current nutritional preferences.
