The future Queen is said to be a 'huge fan' of an exercise phenomenon many swear by.

Going on a run, playing a spot of tennis, learning how to play rugby - Kate Middleton has a soft spot for sports-focused royal engagements. Exercise is high up on Kate's list of favourite past times and she is regularly photographed both watching and playing various different sports. 

Alongside juggling a busy schedule as a working royal and raising three royal children, Kate Middleton is known to make time for herself by exercising regularly to not only keep herself in shape, but to blow off some steam. When she gets the chance, the exercise trend CrossFit is said to be a firm favourite of the Duchess' for the confidence boost it offers.

CrossFit is a high-intensity exercise style that combines elements from Princess Charlotte's favourite sport, gymnastics, kettlebell and weightlifting. The exercise in intense and certainly not for everyone, but Kate is reportedly keen on it.

A spokesperson from BarBend, an exercise magazine, told, “CrossFit is one of the most effective workouts for building muscle, burning fat, and toning your body, so it’s no surprise to see that Kate Middleton is a huge fan.

“The workouts can be challenging, combining weightlifting, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning, however, the focus is on hitting your next fitness or strength goal, rather than the number on the scales, which helps people forget about their weight and become more confident."
