Before she tied the knot with her Prince, Kate Middleton was reportedly losing so much weight, both her sister and future husband were very worried about her.
Pippa Middleton spent a lot of time talking to her sister once the Duchess of Cambridge became engaged to Prince William. And not because she wanted to gossip or talk about dresses and tiaras. Nope. Pippa was afraid Kate was losing too much weight.
It’s not exactly a secret that Kate Middleton gets her post-baby body back seemingly right after she steps out of the maternity ward. Remember when she posed on the hospital steps hours after giving birth to Prince George? And then again to Charlotte and Louis? She looked stunning! And when she was preparing to walk down the aisle in 2011, things were no different.
Express reports that right before her wedding to William, Kate was losing so much weight, Pippa felt the need to check-in on her sister. At the time, royal correspondent Emily Hall wrote in the Daily Star that, “Pippa was so worried about her sister’s ever-shrinking size frame, she called up to five times daily to check Kate was tucking in.” Hall said that Kate was becoming “stricter with her diet…to look super-slip walking up the aisle.”
A source recently told Express that Kate is an exercise junkie, saying, “Pippa and Kate take their toned physiques extremely seriously. And mother Carole, in her 60s, is in extremely good shape.”
The royal source also said that the sisters would workout together at the gym inside Kensington Palace doing “cardio warm-ups, hip raises, diagonal and reverse lunges, stomach crunches, squats, calf raises, bridges and push-ups.”
According to Hall, William was also worried about his fiancé, with one friend reportedly telling her that “He knows the responsibility Kate has taken on is immense.”
Eight years later and Kate doesn’t look like she’s gained an ounce. How could she when she’s running after three little kids all day? Not to mention, dodging rumors of royal feuds and a cheating husband must burn a substantial amount of calories.
