Kate Middleton somehow manages to find the time and energy to stay in excellent shape even as a busy mum of three.
In keeping with royal protocol, the Duchess doesn't give interviews about her lifestyle. However, luckily, we have royal commentators happy to share her fitness secrets.
It's believed that both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are members of the exclusive Harbour Club gym in Chelsea, which the late Princess Diana also attended.
The elite fitness centre costs £1555 to join and then £325 every month in membership fees.
There's also a couples' membership option, which will set you back a £3100 joining fee (£1550 each) and £560 per month (£280 each).
The fee gives members full access to the gym, swimming pools and tennis courts.
The gym itself offers treadmills, cross trainers, spin bikes, pilates machines, TRX stations, Stairmaster machines, rowing machines and more.
Inside the gym, it's believed that the 39-year-old shuns fancy equipment and instead uses a simple bodyweight centred routine to maintain her svelte figure.
An insider told the Express: "Kate takes her toned physiques exceptionally seriously.
"The Duchess is reportedly also a fan of CrossFit and yoga, makes time to go for a run most days, enjoys cycling, and does most of her workouts without a personal trainer!"
CrossFit is a high-intensity workout that uses functional movements you would use in your daily life – like squatting, pulling, pushing etc.
The workout would be perfectly combined with yoga afterwards to stretch out the muscles.
The Harbour Club offers their Blaze HIIT class, which takes place in a dimly lit room, and combines cardio, strength and combat training while each participant is hooked up to a heart rate monitor.
When Kate is with a trainer, it's believed the royal has one go-to exercise to strengthen her core and makes sure she fits in all her routines.
The Duchess is reported to include ten reps of planks into her exercise sessions.
"It tightens her muscles," the source said, adding: "There are three elements, the basic plank, side plank and the prone skydive."
The prone skydive requires lying on your tummy before lifting your arms, chest, lower legs and feet off the floor for as long as you can.
"All of which are positions Kate can hold for 45 seconds or longer and repeat at least ten times each."
The Duchess is also known to take a run every morning and especially loves to do her exercise in the open air on the grounds of the various royal residences.
