The Duchess of Cambridge is a home cook! According to an insider, Kate Middleton, 36, does not have a chef in the royal home. “They have a small household and can fend for themselves,” a source has shared.

Kate, her husband, Prince William, and their three children — Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 8 months — often dine on Kate’s culinary creations. “It’s the reason I’m so skinny,” the Prince, 36, teased. The Duchess isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty! Kate has said that she loves whipping up spicy vegetable curry and has even made pizza dough with George and Charlotte.

Ordinarily, the Duchess maintains a healthy lean-protein, low-carb diet — often called the Dukan diet (named after originator Dr. Pierre Dukan) — and favors raw dishes like tabbouleh, ceviche, gazpacho, and watermelon salad. She’s also said to start her mornings with a kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, coriander, and blueberry smoothie that includes spirulina — a superfood packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals.

William is also health-conscious, a habit that was instilled in him as a child by his late mother, Princess Diana. He and his brother, Prince Harry, often dined on roasted chicken, lean venison meat, homemade fish sticks and lots of fresh veggies. Of course, the young princes also had some not-so-healthy habits. “Cancel lunch for the boys,” Princess Di once told her chef. “I’m taking them out. We’re going to McDonald’s.”
