Kate Middleton Adds Royal Style Not Seen Since Diana (photos)

1Kate Middleton continues to wow as the new Duchess of Cambridge. She hasn’t missed a step fashion-wise since she married Prince William and is a stark contrast to her step-mother-in-law, the frumpy Camilla.

The royal family hasn’t looked this stylish since William’s mother, Princess Diana roamed Buckingham Palace. She died tragically in a car accident in France in 1997.

In Kate’s latest public appearance, she showed off her trend-setting fashion style in a head-to-toe gray outfit at the Order of the Garter service festivities in Windsor, England yesterday (June 13.)

The size two, 5’10” Middleton watched as husband Prince William, 28, walked in the parade alongside his father, Prince Charles.

The previous day, William played in a charity polo match against brother Prince Harry in Ascot, England. William’s team won, 1-0.

While Kate, 29, has lost a noticeable amount of weight during the past few months, she has always been a fitness fanatic. Middleton, who played hockey, tennis and swam as a child, reportedly works out at least an hour every day and watches her diet strictly.

A friend told London’s Sunday Times that Kate stays thin by not eating very much. “She’s never had an eating problem; she’s just extremely disciplined,” said the source.

Kate’s sexy younger sister, Pippa Middleton, known formally as Philippa, is a fellow gym fanatic who follows a high-protein, low-carb diet and runs and does Pilates.

The athletic Pippa completed the running portion of the GE Blenheim Triathlon at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England on June 4, 2011.

Meanwhile, Pippa, 27, reportedly is single again after having split from boyfriend Alex Loudon, a former pro cricket player turned businessman.
