  • Friday saw the Duchess of Cambridge return to her royal duties for the very first time since giving birth to baby George. But it wasn't her volleyball skills that have made headlines

    Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, made her return to royal duties on Friday, rocking up to play volleyball in her role as SportsAid patron at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

    But it wasn’t the fact she cut short her maternity leave or her absence from Prince George that has made headlines over the weekend – it’s her incredibly flat stomach just three months since giving birth.

    Dressed in navy blue skinny jeans , a Ralph Lauren Breton top and a navy blazer, with sky-high Russell & Bromley wedges, the Duchess of Cambridge met with young teens and took part in various workshops to help promote the charity. And as she reached up to the net to score, Kate showed off her blemish-free, stretch mark-free, super-flat stomach for all to see.

    Reports are now circulating about Kate‘s incredible post-baby body, and royal insiders are claiming that its all down to the help of one woman, postnatal fitness guru, Judy Di Fiore.

    Judy’s book, The Complete Guide To Postnatal Fitness suggests simples exercises to regain muscle strength in the abs. The fitness and Pilates instructor is also a dance lecturer at Middlesex University and director of Pushy Mothers – a company that provides outdoor fitness programmes for new mums. We can totally imagine her having a private Pilates lesson at the palace.

    Whatever the reason behind Kate‘s figure, we had no doubt she’d spring straight back into shape – after all, she’s always been seriously sporty and isn’t one to sit out a game. Remember when she played hockey in her knee-high boots just days before her pregnancy was announced? Plus, she’s got that all important christening dress to get into…
