Home Gym – Kate Middleton’s diet and workout secrets – from surprisingly traditional dinners to simple exercise sessions
Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, has always been a big advocate for looking after both your physical and mental health.
As we know, the pressure on women to always be looking their best is all too real. Similarly there’s no such thing as a perfect, one-size-fits-all diet, as everyone is unique.
But despite a busy family and work life, Kate, 39, seems to still find the time to stay fit and healthy – something we can all find inspiration in. So how does she do it?
Kate ensures she fuels her body with the right vitamins and nutrients it needs to keep her on top form for her busy schedule of royal engagements.
Her intake involves a wholesome blend of fruits and vegetables with high levels of antioxidants.
Kate reportedly avoids dairy and “drinks smoothies morning and afternoon, containing spirulina, kale, matcha (a finely ground green tea powder), spinach, lettuce, cilantro and blueberries”. She’s also said to enjoy berries blended with almond milk as an afternoon snack, according to the Daily Mail.
Kate also reportedly favours raw dishes like watermelon salads, gazpacho, goji berries, tabbouleh and ceviche for their skincare-benefits.
The Duchess also grows her own vegetables. Speaking in BBC’s A Berry Royal Christmas in 2019, Kate told Mary Berry she cooks with home grown produce.
Kate said: “We grow our own vegetables. We’ve got carrots, beans, beetroots.
“Louis absolutely loves beetroot. Charlotte obviously likes her Charlotte potatoes.”
On top of her healthy breakfasts and dinners, reports say Kate turns to some family-favourites for dinner. Her go-to recipes include roast chicken, curry and soups.
“In the evenings she indulges her hobby of cooking William’s favourite supper, roast chicken,” Vanity Fair wrote in 2012.
Prince William and Kate Middleton reportedly bonded over their mutual love of sports when they met at St Andrews University back in 2001. Middleton was an excellent student athlete, and was involved in rowing, swimming, and tennis.
Kate Middleton and Prince William were first photographed as a couple during a ski trip to Switzerland in 2004, and it kicked off a series of trips and sporting activities that the two would enjoy together.

This love of sports has clearly stayed with Kate years later. Like her sister Pippa, Kate is known to be a strong runner.
While Kate’s workout routine is obviously rigorous, the Duchess of Cambridge is also said to enjoy yoga—which helps her calm down and de-stress, as well as building up strength and core muscles. When she’s after something a bit more strenuous, she opts for Pilates.
Former personal trainer Louise Parker also revealed that Kate loves strength training – she recommends doing squats, lunges, push-ups, sit-ups to tone and improve muscle and bone strength.”
Kate has often shared that one of her favourite things to do is spend time outside with her family. As the summer is on the horizon (even if the weather doesn’t quite feel like it yet), Kate Middleton is a big advocate of getting outside and having some fresh air – something we can all get behind.
