1. Kate Middleton
Workout secret: Planking
The Duchess of Cambridge has always been sporty, and even now with two kids in tow and a busy Royal duty-filled schedule, Kate is just as fit as ever.
Pilates, skiing and even CrossFit, the real secret to Kate’s svelte physique, according to insiders, is the humble plank. She holds the position for at lease 45 seconds at a time to tighten and tone her muscles, and keep her in tip-top shape.
2. Prince William
Workout secret: Fast fitness
With a jam-packed schedule that takes him all over the globe, the prince has to take his fitness on the road. The solution? Wills practises the Royal Canadian Air Force 5BX plan before breakfast.
The plan only takes 11 minutes and is comprised of five moves that work the whole body.
As you improve your fitness, you ramp up the reps rather than extend the workout. Designed to get cadets fit quickly without equipment, it’s perfect for the ex-RAF pilot.
3. Prince Harry
Workout secret: Military-style training
He might have a reputation for being the party prince, but behind that laid-back persona, Harry is actually as fit as a fiddle!
Between endurance runs in full military kit, high-intensity circuit training and weights sessions in the gym, Harry maintains his army-level fitness by sticking to this rigorous military-style training regimen.
4. Pippa Middleton
Workout secret: the 10-week tone up
Since her sister’s wedding – when all eyes were on her amazing figure – it’s become clear that this Middleton makes fitness a priority.
While she’s a keen runner and has famously completed the Great Wall Marathon in China, Pippa also has her own fitness programme called the 10-week tone up, which she released in conjunction with Waitrose supermarket in the UK.
The plan focuses on strength and mobility, and increases in difficulty each week. “Working harder will increase your metabolic rate, not only during exercise, but for a few hours after too,” she says.
5. Meghan Markle
Workout secret: Vinyasa yoga
The Suits star and Prince Harry’s leading lady is almost as famous for her physique as she is for her love life, and it’s all down to yoga.
“My mum was a yoga instructor so that practice is in my blood,” she says. “I love an intense vinyasa class – and even better if it’s blasting hip-hop and done in a dark room with candlelight.”
