Pippa famously made headlines at Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding for her fantastic figure in her Maid of Honour Sarah Burton designer dress.
Thanks to a balanced diet and plenty of exercise, Pippa has a fantastic figure. Although her exact size is not known, Pippa’s frame is similar to her sister Kate’s, who is reported to be a size six.
Despite being a mother to three children, the 39-year-old socialite manages to eat healthily and stay fit. One way she stays slim is by eating breakfast every day.
Breakfast is described as the most important meal of the day for an important reason – it helps people stay fuller for longer and therefore they are less likely to snack throughout the day.

Pippa explained she “can’t start the day properly without breakfast”. Hers is often comprised of “lots of porridge or boiled eggs with soldiers”.
But other times, she opts for yoghurt, avocado on toast, and muesli. “My usual breakfast is either plain yoghurt with chopped fruit and toasted seeds, oats and nuts or toasted rye bread with eggs or avocado,” Pippa told The i.
She added she also enjoys “Bircher muesli with fresh berries on top”. The socialite explained: “You can even make a batch for the whole week”.
For Pippa, food is all about balance, which means she is not afraid to consume sugary treats from time to time. Writing in Waitrose magazine, she shared: “I grew up with the belief that good health is about moderation in all things.
“So I’ll be celebrating healthy living through exercise, a balanced diet and a little of the naughty stuff sprinkled in – I’m talking chocolate, crisps and an occasional glass of wine.”
The 39-year-old went on to say she has never properly dieted but makes sure to eat as healthily as she can.
She said: “I’ve never done Dukan, attempted Atkins or exercised religiously seven days a week, but I do believe in making healthy choices.
“Keeping refined carbs such as white bread and pasta to a minimum, and sticking to sensible portion sizes.”

Many experts, including nutrition expert Dr Michael Mosley, have advised swapping refined carbohydrates for whole grains as they help keep people feeling fuller for longer.
Wholegrains are full of fibre, which also helps with digestion. Exercise is just as important as dieting when it comes to weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight.
Pippa has shared how her children keep her active, and she also enjoys attending fitness classes.
Speaking to an interviewer from running shoe brand Hoka One One, she explained: “Being active with my two-and-a-half-year-old son in the park or playground, transporting him on the back of my bike, and buggy running when he was a baby have been ways in which I have been able to include outdoor exercise whilst being a hands-on mummy.”
She added that post-pregnancy with her older children she also worked out “for 45 minutes, three or four times a week, depending on my energy levels”.
In addition to her out-of-doors activity, she regularly attends classes for “Barrecore, strength and conditioning, Pilates or yoga.”
Pippa welcomed her third child, Rose, in June earlier this year. Although no photos have been shared of Pippa since giving birth, it is likely she looks excellent given her usual slim figure.
The Princess of Wales’ sister lives in Bucklebury, her childhood village, along with her husband James Matthews and their three children.
