Kate Middleton has always been pictured as a healthy, energetic, and encouraging individual. Amongst other things, the Princess of Wales took over Prince Harry’s English rugby patronage, and has previously visited many schools and other institutions where she herself has engaged in sports activities.

But life as a princess can be understandably stressful, especially when one is married to a future king. It’s also hard for Kate, as a mother of three, to find the time to partake in extra-curricular activities, exercise included.

Recently, though, Kate shared a trick for getting her workout in – and answered the question as to why she gets on a trampoline early in the morning each day.
Kate Middleton and the rest of the Royal Family are in the process of moving on following the release of Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, two weeks ago.The book was highly-anticipated by royal fans, and though much of the world was given a taste of things to come through Harry and Meghan’s candid documentary series on Netflix, Spare was something entirely else.

Kate criticized in Harry’s book ‘Spare’

Harry laid out his entire royal life within its pages, including the tragic day his mother passed away, and revealed all manner of things concerning what it was like growing up within palaces and castles.

Several members of the Royal Family found themselves the subject of criticism from Harry, and Kate, perhaps surprisingly, was not spared. The Prince revealed how Kate and Meghan had a heated argument over text before he and the Duchess’s wedding in 2018, after young Princess Charlotte started crying over her dress during the flower girl dresses fitting.

Moreover, Harry also painted a picture of Kate being unwelcoming and uptight regarding Meghan’s introduction into the family. Meghan herself touched upon that in the aforementioned Netflix series, which aired in December.

It seems that Meghan had a tough time after becoming a part of the Royal Family. Upon meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton for the first time, the former actress realized she was heading into unknown territory.

Though Meghan and Kate reportedly got along pretty well initially, their relationship today is not what it once was.

Now, we’re all aware that the British royals have a particular way of behaving in public, and that they have traditions and protocols they’re expected to follow.

It makes sense to assume that Meghan was probably aware of this as well, though she admitted to being surprised after meeting Kate for the first time.

Kate Middleton was “baffled” about Harry’s revelation

Meghan, Harry, William, and Kate are said to have met for a couples’ dinner. Yet though it was supposed to be an intimate gathering, Kate showed less outward affection than Meghan would’ve liked.

In the documentary series, Meghan took a swing at Kate for being reserved and not as welcoming as the former actress expected her to be.

“When Will and Kate came over, and I met her for the first time, they came over for dinner, I remember I was in ripped jeans, and I was barefoot,” Meghan said in the Netflix series.

“I was a hugger. I’ve always been a hugger, I didn’t realize that that is really jarring for a lot of Brits.”

She continued: “I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside carried through on the inside. There is a forward-facing way of being, and then you close the door and go ‘You can relax now’, but that formality carries over on both sides. And that was surprising to me.”

The Royal Family has decided not to comment on the content in the Netflix documentary or Harry’s memoir – William and Kate have already dodged questions from journalists regarding Spare. Still, it’s been reported that Kate was “baffled” about what Harry had written, and the personal attacks he leveled at her.

At the same time, however, the Princess of Wales is not said to be too angry about it as she is “totally immersed” in her work and reportedly too busy “to take much notice.”

Kate Middleton’s passion for healthy living

Since joining the Royal Family, Kate Middleton has been involved in many special projects close to her heart. After she and William became the Prince and Princess of Wales, they took on even more duties. Kate, for example, has taken over a number patronages, including becoming the patron of English rugby after Prince Harry’s departure from the royal fold.

Instead of fretting about Harry and his book, Kate has, by all accounts, continued to work hard. She’s now getting ready to launch a brand new campaign to help children and future generations.

Kate has always viewed children and their well-being as a cause close to her heart. For years, she has promoted the importance of speaking about mental health. The Princess of Wales has worked tirelessly to highlight social issues such as homelessness among children, and child care in hospitals all over Britain.

“Of course, there have been other distractions but the princess has had far more important things on her mind. It’s an important and exciting time,” a royal source told Mirror.

“The campaign she has been working on really is the result of several months behind the scenes (and) will launch a new three to five year programme.”

The source added: “(Kate) spends a lot of time reading, meeting and speaking with professionals across the entire field – but this isn’t just one project, it’s an opportunity to make generational change for all our children.”

Advocator for a healthy lifestyle

“There are a number of creative parts in the process for parents and non-parents to be involved across the country with lots more to come and the hope is as many people as possible, from those in the medical and academic world as well as parents and non-parents, join the journey.”

As a result, Kate’s been praised for her work involving children. Not only does she look at serious social challenges and problems, but Kate has consistently advocated for healthy living, including regular exercise and healthy eating.

Naturally, being the Princess of Wales as well as a mother of three is demanding. Kate has plenty on her hands between work and raising her children together with William, which means she doesn’t have too much spare time on her hands.

It’s widely known that Kate is a big fan of working out and spending time outdoors, which she previously has spoken on. Needless to say, the manner of her workout routines, and what she does to stay fit and healthy, have become a subject of much public interest.

Kate Middleton is a hands-on mother and very dedicated to raising her children in the right way. That extends to her views on exercise, which were formulated way back when she was young.
