Kate Middleton’s post-baby weight loss secrets included pole-dancing workouts, and her sister Pippa wants to compete on “Dancing With the Stars,” say royal bodyguards.
Kate took pole dancing lessons to lose weight after giving birth to Prince George in 2013, say royal bodyguards.
“She agreed to have lessons as a bit of a laugh,” a source told Star. “She was so nervous about being seen or recognized, she used to wear a scarf around her head as a disguise. But she loved it!”
Middleton, a longtime diet and workout fanatic, joked that all women should have a secret talent. “She tells everyone it was great exercise,” said the insider. “She told me a woman should always have secret talents up her sleeve!”
Another surprising revelation the royal bodyguards made is that Kate’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is desperate to compete on “Dancing With the Stars,” but the Kensington Palace shut her down.
“Pippa wants her sister’s fame, that’s for sure,” said a source. “She’s desperate to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ but the Palace asked her to back off. They felt it would sully the image of her sister.”
Pippa was not deterred by the palace’s disapproval. “She did not care!” said the insider. “She supposedly contacted Derek Hough somehow and he’s a big fan of the idea.”
Middleton, who gave birth to Charlotte in May, has regained her slim pre-baby body less than two months after delivery. Kate’s weight loss secrets (aside from pole dancing) are a low-carb diet and yoga workouts.
In 2014, Kate, a longtime fitness fanatic, lost 29 pounds less than two months after giving birth to son George, thanks to a low-carb diet and yoga, the Examiner reported.
Low-carb diets such as the Atkins, ketogenic and Paleo diets fuel rapid weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Kate Middleton’s rapid post-baby weight loss secrets also include a daily organic diet of fresh green juices.
“Pippa arranged to have fresh juices delivered to Kate every three days,” a source told Us. “It was a surprise treat. Kate used to blend her own juices and this is much easier. She just enjoys green juice in the morning. It’s Kate’s go-to for an extra boost.”
The super-skinny Middleton has been nicknamed “the Smoothie Queen” because she loves to use her Nutribullet blender at home to make her own healthy fruit and vegetable drinks.
Kate reportedly swears by daily juicing to keep her skin glowing. “She’s buying fresh local produce,” sources said. “All organic.”
Middleton, a star college athlete, stayed fit during pregnancy by walking and doing prenatal yoga to keep her muscles lean and limber.
Kate Middleton’s other beauty secrets include the following:
- To keep her skin wrinkle-free, Kate uses Trilogy Rosehip Oil on her face.
- To prevent stretch marks, she rubbed Bio-Oil on her belly both during and after her pregnancy.
- To keep her skin glowing and minimize pores, Middleton uses Karin Herzog Oxygen Face cream.
