Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 37, juggles royal duty with raising three children and still finds time to stay in shape. When the dedicated royal isn’t caring for Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one or attending public engagements she is said to dedicate time to working out.

While her naturally tall and skinny figure is partly thanks to genetics, Kate enjoys exercise and has been spotted taking tennis lessons at West London’s exclusive Hurlingham Club.

Membership at the Fulham club costs £1,280 a year and is only accessible via a recommendation from an existing member.

The Hurlingham Club has 15 tennis courts for members to use and Kate is said to visit often.

A regular at the club told the Mail on Sunday: “She’s really very good.”

The Duchess was spotted at the Hurlingham a lot during the summer according to insiders.

The club has a huge outdoor play area for children and Prince George and Princess Charlotte are said to be big fans.

However, tennis is not the only thing Kate does to stay fit, she is also said to be a yoga fan and enjoys running.

According to one royal insider the Duchess incorporates three different types of plank position into her regular exercise regime.

When Princess Charlotte was still a toddler a source told the Daily Mail: “Kate finds the time to run as often as possible when in Norfolk, ‘sometimes with Charlotte in her buggy and their dog Lupo at her side’.”

As well as exercising regularly, Kate is reported to stick to a strict diet and avoids unhealthy foods in favour of lean proteins and lots of fruit and vegetables.

The Duchess is said to avoid dairy and “drinks smoothies morning and afternoon, containing spirulina, kale, matcha (a finely ground green tea powder), spinach, lettuce, cilantro and blueberries”.
