“Look how sporty she is! Amazing,” one Instagram user wrote.
Another added: “I still wish The Duchess writes a book specially, how to be slim.”
A third said: “Love everything about this engagement and the outfit is just perfect. Good to see the Duchess’s sporty side again!”
The Duchess of Cambridge has shown her love of sport many times over the years and is happy to join in sports on official events.
Speaking to Mail Online, a source gave a look into the exercise plan she has followed in the past.
They told the publication: “Kate is an exercise junkie. Pippa and Kate take their toned physiques extremely seriously.
“She and Pippa enjoy strenuous make-up-free aqua aerobics sessions and larky water polo with William and Harry,” an insider told the publication.”
As well as staying active, Kate is thought to focus on eating healthy home cooked meals.
Speaking in BBC’s A Berry Royal Christmas in 2019, Kate told Mary Berry she cooks with home grown produce.

She explained she will grow her own vegetables with her three children.
Kate said: “We grow our own vegetables. We’ve got carrots, beans, beetroots.
“Louis absolutely loves beetroot. Charlotte obviously likes her Charlotte potatoes.”
In the past, it has been suggested Kate maintains her toned frame with the Dukan Diet.
Those who follow the strict plan will fill up on foods low in carbs and high in protein.
First created in France, the plan has different stages and dieters eat unlimited protein for the first week.
Other foods are gradually added in over the course of the plan and the last phase allows slimmers to be more flexible.
How did Kate Middleton become a royal?
Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.
She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.
Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.
Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.
After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.
For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.
In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.
The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.
Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.
On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.
