If rumors are to be believed, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has sought help from her sister, Pippa Middleton, in her attempt to get back into shape following the birth of her second child, Princess Charlotte, after it was reported that Kate Middleton has hired her sister as her personal trainer.
Now magazine, via Celeb Dirty Laundry, have reported that Pippa has been taken on by Kate Middleton in the role. A source explained to the publication, “Kate wants to get fitter and have a few muscles. She’s very envious of her sister’s body.”
The insider added that Kate Middleton spent their holiday in Mustique, which is a small private island that’s part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, being envious of her younger sister’s frame. This is where the seed for Kate to hire Pippa in this role was first planted.
“When the Middletons were holidaying in Mustique in February,” the source continued, “Kate was in awe of her sister’s figure after she saw her in her bikini. She made a pledge to herself that she’d start working out as soon as possible after Princess Charlotte was born.”
And apparently, the time for this transformation is now. It’s been just under two months since Kate Middleton gave birth to Princess Charlotte. And even though she wowed onlookers with her tiny frame in the hours following the birth, and then a few weeks after when she appeared at a polo event that her husband, Prince William, was participating in, it sounds as though she wants to get even trimmer.
The website, via International Business Times, went on to note that Pippa Middleton has even planned out a strict diet and workout plan for her older sibling.
“Kate has a gym at her Norfolk home Anmer Hall, and there’s a swimming pool, too,” the insider explained. “Pippa’s mapped out a cross-country route for Kate around the grounds. She plans to increase her calorie count by 500 a day so Kate doesn’t burn off more than she gains on her fitness regime. Pippa’s also busy drawing up a high-energy diet that’ll increase Kate’s carbs and protein intake.”
Meanwhile, if these rumors are true, then Pippa Middleton has spent the last few weeks getting into shape for her new position with a variety of impressive athletic performances. People have reported that Middleton ran a marathon at 5,000 feet, just one week after she partook in a 54-mile bike ride.
