Helped no doubt by their precious nanny, Maria Teresa Borrallo, Kate Middleton has recently had to act as a schoolteacher for George and Charlotte, whose private school, Thomas’s Battersea, has had to close due to a health crisis.

STAR DIETING: KATE MIDDLETON’S SLIMMING SECRETS

At the age of 38 and after three pregnancies, the Duchess of Cambridge still has a slim, slender silhouette. What are the secrets of her success? We’ve been investigating for you…

Nicknamed “Size 6” by her fellow citizens (Size 34), Kate Middleton is frequently judged “too skinny” by her fans. Nevertheless, curiosity won out: it was necessary to discover her secret.

THE DUKAN REGIME

The royal wedding, you couldn’t miss it! Remember, it was April 29th 2011: in an incredible wedding dress signed Alexander McQueen, the beautiful Catherine Elisabeth Middleton officially became the Duchess of Cambridge by saying “Yes” to Prince William… What we remember from that day is her perfect silhouette, impeccably highlighted!

To achieve this, Kate had pulled out all the stops: for several weeks, she had been on the Dukan diet, to which she had also converted her sister, Pippa, and her mother, Carole. Highly controversial (it was recognized as “ineffective and dangerous” by the ANSES in 2010), this high-protein regime nevertheless allowed it to melt away in record time.

It consists of 4 phases: a “booster” phase (2 to 5 days of pure protein, i.e. just eggs, meat, fish, etc. at will) + a “slimming” phase (28 vegetables are allowed at will) + a “consolidation” phase (which lasts 10 days per kilo lost) + a “stabilization” phase (where you keep one “protein day” per week).

SPORTS EVERY MORNING

If Kate Middleton is not as sporty as her sister, the pretty Pippa (in May 2016, the latter participated in the Great Wall of China Marathon: 42 km, 5164 steps), she has nevertheless adopted a well-oiled fitness routine: 60 minutes of sport every morning, no more and no less!

No question of using high-tech equipment. To sculpt her silhouette, the Duchess of Cambridge relies on timeless equipment: a Gymball (= gymnastic ball, in V.F.) to keep a nice flat stomach and dumbbells to work the arm muscles (and avoid the “bat” effect). In addition, Kate has adopted squats (the top to have thin and firm thighs), boarding (of the abdominal crunch) and sit-ups (a Pilates exercise that resembles abdominal crunches).

Prior to the birth of Princess Charlotte (May 2, 2015), Kate had also opted for prenatal fitness with her personal trainer, Louise Parker. Since they tell you that it’s perseverance that pays…

A LOT OF JUICES

On the other side of the Channel, some newspapers nicknamed her the Smoothie Queen: the Duchess of Cambridge is addicted to juices, and she claims it! During the first months of Baby Georges and little Charlotte’s life, Pippa had her sister delivered healthy juices every three days: that’s all it took to convince Kate, who now prepares an “extra-boost” elixir every morning. Prince William is also said to have succumbed to the virus…

Of course, the products are organic and local: the Duchess only chooses fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants and fibre. According to British newspapers, her favourite recipe is orange-pineapple-banana: perfect for keeping your figure in shape, but also for keeping your complexion and hair shiny, fighting fatigue, boosting your immune system… In short, we applaud him.

CHILDREN’S

What if the secret to thinness was that simple? In April 2016, during a trip to India, Bulbul Dhar James (a local university professor) asked our favorite Duchess the question: “How did you manage to stay so thin after having two children? ». Kate’s answer surprised everyone: “I don’t do anything special: I just run around behind my children all day long! “An obvious slimming trick that all young mothers will understand…

POLE DANCING?

The news comes to us from STAR magazine, a British tabloid that has reportedly collected the confessions of the Royal Guards themselves: to keep her wasp waist, the beautiful Kate Middleton would do… pole dancing.

Info or intox? Either way, we welcome the idea: far from the stereotypes, pole dancing is a sport in its own right, which makes it possible to work all the muscles of the body (thighs and abs, in particular). During a session, you can burn up to 600 Kcal, performing increasingly physical figures around a metal bar. And, of course, there’s no question of dressing up as a pin-up or exercising on 12 cm heels!
