She’s the epitome of class and all things royal, so it’s not surprising that the world is completely fascinated with what Kate Middleton eats. Whether it be the paparazzi spotting a pizza guy near the hospital wheres she’s given birth, or a friend of a friend sharing that Kate Middleton once ate a lot of raw fish, the people are interested.
But if people are expecting that Kate follows a fancy or complicated diet, they will be disappointed. The mum-of-three is actually remarkably sensible.
Firstly, Kate Middleton makes most of her own food for her family, despite having a palace chef.
Speaking to People in 2016, Middleton said Prince William “has to put up with [her] cooking most of the time.”
To which the Prince replied, “It’s the reason I’m so skinny!”.
Despite being incredibly healthy most of the time, Kate Middleton has shared that she enjoys cooking with her kids.
According to Hello! Kate Middleton loves making pizzas from scratch with Princess Charlotte and Prince George.
Hello! reports that when Kate was recently making food for a Commonwealth Big Lunch at St Luke’s Community Centre, she said: “I’ve done that with George and Charlotte—making pizza dough.”
“They love it because they can get their hands messy.”
The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William also have a liking for takeaway food, with their favourites being pizza and curry.
Kate Middleton enjoyed takeaway pizza after her 11 labour with Prince George in 2013, when onlookers spotted a royal security person taking two pizza boxes into the hospital. And goodness that’s a long time, we hope she had them both to herself.
According to The Daily Mail, Prince William and Kate Middleton also enjoy takeaway curry from Malabar restaurant in Notting Hill in London, but instead of having an Uber Eats driver arrive at the palace gates, a member of staff goes to collect it.
Kate has, on occasion, also stuck to more specific diets, such as the Dukan diet.
The Sun reported that Kate Middleton followed the Dukan diet, which is high in protein and low in carbs, prior to her wedding and after giving birth to George and Charlotte.
Moral of the story? Avoid fad diets and aim for balance, without forgetting to get your hands dirty once in a while.
