When it comes to breakfast time in the Duchess of Cambridge's household, we had imagined a grand affair - possibly a vast spread of tropical fruits, delicious pastries and posh fry-ups under fancy silver cloches.

In reality, the royals take breakfast much as we do, and we were fascinated to discover what the Duchess of Cambridge eats in the morning.

WATCH: Duchess Kate's daily diet revealed

According to the MailOnline, the mother-of-three likes to drink a nutrient-rich smoothie to start her day.

The Duchess is said to blend a combination of kale, spirulina (a type of algae), matcha (green tea leaves), spinach, romaine, cilantro (coriander leaves) and blueberries together for her healthy morning drink.

Kate is also believed to enjoy a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast – it's known that porridge oats give slow-release energy throughout the morning, which would serve the royal well as she combines regal duties with parenting tasks.

If you're wondering what Prince William and Kate's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, eat in the mornings, then we have that information too!

When Kate visited LEYF (London Early Years Foundation) Stockwell Gardens Nursery and Pre-school in London in January 2020, she served breakfast to children and spoke of her own brood's meal preferences.

School manager Michelle Samuels told today.com: "She mentioned to there of the children that her own children enjoy apples and cereal in the morning, which sparked a conversation with the children about their own preference of fruits." Great to hear that the young Princes and Princess eat just like our own kids!
