Kate Middleton has always been pictured as a healthy, energetic, and encouraging individual. Amongst other things, the Princess of Wales took over Prince Harry’s English rugby patronage and has previously visited many schools and other institutions where she herself has engaged in sports activities.

But life as a princess can be understandably stressful, especially when one is married to a future king. It’s also hard for Kate, as a mother of three, to find the time to partake in extra-curricular activities, exercise included.

Recently, though, Kate shared a trick for getting her workout in – and answered the question as to why she gets on a trampoline early in the morning each day.

Kate Middleton and the rest of the Royal Family are in the process of moving on following the release of Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, two weeks ago. The book was highly anticipated by royal fans, and though much of the world was given a taste of things to come through Harry and Meghan’s candid documentary series on Netflix, Spare was something entirely else.

Harry laid out his entire royal life within its pages, including the tragic day his mother passed away, and revealed all manner of things concerning what it was like growing up within palaces and castles.

Several members of the Royal Family found themselves the subject of criticism from Harry, and Kate, perhaps surprisingly, was not spared. The Prince revealed how Kate and Meghan had a heated argument over text before he and the Duchess’s wedding in 2018 after young Princess Charlotte started crying over her dress during the flower girl dresses fitting.

Moreover, Harry also painted a picture of Kate being unwelcoming and uptight regarding Meghan’s introduction into the family. Meghan herself touched upon that in the aforementioned Netflix series, which aired in December.

It seems that Meghan had a tough time after becoming a part of the Royal Family. Upon meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton for the first time, the former actress realized she was heading into unknown territory.

Though Meghan and Kate reportedly got along pretty well initially, their relationship today is not what it once was.

Now, we’re all aware that the British royals have a particular way of behaving in public, and that they have traditions and protocols they’re expected to follow.

It makes sense to assume that Meghan was probably aware of this as well, though she admitted to being surprised after meeting Kate for the first time.

Kate Middleton was “baffled” about Harry’s revelation
Meghan, Harry, William, and Kate are said to have met for a couples’ dinner. Yet though it was supposed to be an intimate gathering, Kate showed less outward affection than Meghan would’ve liked.

In the documentary series, Meghan took a swing at Kate for being reserved and not as welcoming as the former actress expected her to be.

“When Will and Kate came over, and I met her for the first time, they came over for dinner, I remember I was in ripped jeans, and I was barefoot,” Meghan said in the Netflix series.

“I was a hugger. I’ve always been a hugger, I didn’t realize that that is really jarring for a lot of Brits.”

She continued: “I guess I started to understand very quickly that the formality on the outside carried through on the inside. There is a forward-facing way of being, and then you close the door and go ‘You can relax now’, but that formality carries over on both sides. And that was surprising to me.”

The Royal Family has decided not to comment on the content in the Netflix documentary or Harry’s memoir – William and Kate have already dodged questions from journalists regarding Spare. Still, it’s been reported that Kate was “baffled” about what Harry had written, and the personal attacks he leveled at her.

At the same time, however, the Princess of Wales is not said to be too angry about it as she is “totally immersed” in her work and reportedly too busy “to take much notice.”

Since joining the Royal Family, Kate Middleton has been involved in many special projects close to her heart. After she and William became the Prince and Princess of Wales, they took on even more duties. Kate, for example, has taken over a number of patronages, including becoming the patron of English rugby after Prince Harry’s departure from the royal fold.

Instead of fretting about Harry and his book, Kate has, by all accounts, continued to work hard. She’s now getting ready to launch a brand new campaign to help children and future generations.
