Prince George and husband Prince William at the weekend.
Just six weeks after giving birth to Princess Charlotte, the Duchess of Cambridge showed no hint of a baby bump in her laid-back outfit, consisting of fitted striped tee and skinny jeans.
But Kate Middleton’s post-baby weight-loss journey hasn’t been plain-sailing, as it’s been reported that she’s hired an elite personal trainer in a bid to shift the pounds, according to People.
Catherine, 33, is reportedly paying ‘a lot of money’ for the London-based personal trainer, who’s popular with A-listers and fellow royals.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who gave birth to Princess Charlotte on May 2, speaks to her trainer on the phone every day and they meet up for weekly workouts – although it’s not known whether she has to endure burpees and bear crawls like the rest of us.
Her diet consists mainly of organic fruit and veg, as well as lean meat, although the food is reportedly ‘very elegant'

In fact, the Kate Middleton effect is well and truly still in full swing as a top worn by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge this weekend now has a THREE-MONTH waiting list.
The £48 Breton striped tee now comes with a polite notice on the Me + Em website that states ‘this product has an estimated dispatch date of 18th September.’
And if you’re thinking ‘ooh, I’ll just get it in a different colour!’, you might want to re-think because the earliest you’ll get it in any sort of hue is the end of July.
The 33-year-old royal, who was spotted in the top while playing with son Prince George at the polo this weekend, has worn the same design previously – at the polo, no less.
She styled the outfit in pretty much exactly the same way as she did before (skinny jeans, boat shoes, sunnies), except this time she was sporting maternity denim.
Well she HAS just given birth, can you blame her?
The Duchess opted for a pair of £38 Topshop

But now it’s all about her toddler son, Prince George, as fans are eager to steal a piece of the toddler’s style.
We take a look back at the most popular pieces that the future King has worn over the past two years…
Aden + Anais Cloth, One Day Old
HRH Prince George was a trend-setter from his first ever public appearance. The £12 Sweet Bird Print swaddle cloth, which is included within a pack of four, sold out after the Prince was first pictured wrapped in it after leaving the Lindo Wing with his parents.
My1stYears Personalised Jumper, Seven Months Old
The £25 personalised baby blue jumper that George was pictured in for a special Mother’s Day portrait sold out immediately online, with the brand admitting they saw an ‘instant and unexpected increase in demand’ for the product after the picture was released.

And while Kensington Palace is yet to release an official photo of the royal baby girl, her daddy Prince William has been out and about since the May 2 birth – including playing a game or two of charity polo.
The Duke of Cambridge, 32, took part in the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot this weekend alongside 30-year-old brother Prince Harry, with the Duke receiving the most adorable gift for daughter Charlotte after the match.
Wills looked a little hesitant as he accepted the present from Andre Konsbruck, Director of Audi UK, but he looked absolutely DELIGHTED once he’d opened it.
Because inside the gift box was a pair of pink Hunter wellies for his baby girl – and the fact he was pictured checking out the size on the bottom suggests he’s pretty keen for her to put them on.
It’s actually a very thoughtful present indeed as the Cambridge clan, including Catherine,

Brave Emily Morris, 14, has spent nearly half her life hiding her thinning hair after she was diagnosed with alopecia in 2007.
But now, thanks to her 16-year-old sister Lauren - who shaved off her long brown locks to raise money in memory of their mum - she's found the courage to step out in public without her bandana.
"Seeing Lauren without any hair made me realise that I had nothing to be ashamed of and gave me enough strength to take it off,” said Emily, from Halesowen, Birmingham.
"I promised her that if she shaved her hair off I would go to school without my bandana.
"I was nervous at first but with Lauren's support I felt I could do it.
"I always dreamt of what it would be like to go to school without my bandana, now I've done it and I feel so confident.
"Before, I'd always think tomorrow's the day I'm not going to wear my bandana to school

Ever since she threw that drink over Hugo in ‘Made In Chelsea’, we knew she was a girl after her own heart – and she’s done pretty well for herself since leaving the E4 reality show in 2013.
Aside from her successful eponymous fashion collection and eyelashes range, she’s become quite the fitness foodie – appearing on Celebrity Masterchef and landing her first Women’s Health cover in the past 12 months.
We sat down with the gorgeous 24-year-old to discover her exercise routine and diet secrets, and found that her passion for leading a healthy lifestyle is more than just skin deep.
Plus, it’s given her some ‘perks’!
“My attitude to fitness, ‘strong not skinny’, came from when I started doing more weights-based training,” Millie tells Yahoo at the launch of the new J20 Spritz campaign.
“I decided to work on strength-training and realised that for the body that I want in my head, or that I think looks amazing, it doesn’t involve lots

A new survey of 300 GPs in the UK has found that a fifth of all doctor’s appointments are down to tiredness and fatigue, a syndrome which is known as TATT (Tired All The Time).
But it’s easier to combat than you might think. As well as getting a decent night’s kip, have you taken a minute to look at your hydration levels?
Of these consultations where patients say they’re absolutely knackered all of the blimmin’ time, docs say one in ten of these patients are suffering from dehydration.
And the figure is even higher for Londoners, where a fifth of patients who are Tired All The Time simply aren’t drinking enough H2O.
“I see many people in my surgery who are feeling tired all the time. There are, of course, several reasons that could be causing this, but a surprisingly common cause is that they are dehydrated,” said Dr Roger Henderson, GP

The singer did not take well to online trolls who dissed her weight earlier this year, writing a lengthy post on Twitter shaming the critics who said she looked bigger than usual. (She didn't - it was total rubbish).
And now the singer has opened up about why she responded so personally to the online body-shaming attack, revealing she will not be brought down by cyber bullies.
“I don’t take well to bullying. I am not a person that will be bullied. I am not a person that will stand by and watch other people being bullied,” she told Entertainment Tonight at the BMI Pop Awards this week.

“I’m also raising a girl, I am a girl, I have feelings. People think I take no sh*t and I’m tough, tougher than nails. I’m a human being,” she said.
