Kate, Duchess of Cambridge lives an active and healthy style, one which didn’t change much when she joined the Royal Family. According to British chef Carolyn Robb who worked at Kensington Palace for more than 20 years, the Duchess loves to whip up meals for Prince William and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Ms Robb told Racked in 2015: “Kate does quite a lot of the cooking at the moment.

“You have to remember that she’s not royal. She comes from a normal background and a normal home where she has always cooked for herself.

“And what I’ve always heard is that William enjoys spending time with her family because they just eat together at the kitchen table like a normal family. I’m sure that’s what they still do.”

As for treats, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed she is partial to a glass of white wine in the evenings to wind down, according to Vanity Fair.

Still, a little glass of wine in the evenings does not take away from the Duchess’s healthy lifestyle.

To get up and about in the mornings, the Duchess is said to begin her day with a nice, healthy smoothie.

The Duchess reportedly enjoys smoothies made with spirulina, kale, matcha, spinach, romaine, coriander and blueberries.

Matcha is a concentrated green tea powder, while spirulina is a type of blue-green algae renowned for its superfood qualities.

For lunch, it has been reported the Duchess follows an organic diet “rich in antioxidants”, consisting of salads and “bowls of seasonal fruits”.

Some of her past favourites include watermelon salads, gazpacho – a chilled soup – goji berries, tabbouleh, and ceviche.

A source told the Daily Mail in 2014: “Kate already has the perfect figure, but her motivation now is to achieve radiant skin.”

When it comes to dinner time, the Duchess loves to whip up her go-to dish – roast chicken.

Royal correspondent Kate Nicholl wrote: “In the evenings she indulges her hobby of cooking William’s favourite supper, roast chicken. That’s their idea of the perfect night in.”

Aside from roast chicken, the Duchess has another favourite meal in her recipe book.

Attending a Canadian wine and food festival four years ago, she revealed she loves to cook curries. Asked at the festival if she liked cooking, the Duchess replied: “Yes, especially curries.”

Sampling Indian cuisine from Chef Vikram Vij, Prince William said: “This is amazing. It’s the right level of spice for me.

“I’m very glad you did not surprise us with a vindaloo. I can’t manage that – it’s too much for me.”

It comes as no surprise that the Duchess makes her own chutney – a spicy or savoury condiment which is the perfect accompaniment to Indian food.

The recipe came in handy when she spent her first Christmas with the Queen and the Royal Family.

The Duchess remembered the ordeal in the ITV documentary titled Our Queen At Ninety. She said: “I was thinking ‘Gosh what should I give her?’ I thought, ‘I’ll make her something’.

“Which could have gone horribly wrong. But I decided to make my granny’s recipe of chutney.”

The gift undoubtedly was appreciated by the monarch as the Duchess spotted the homemade chutney on the table the following day.
