Back in 2013 when she was expecting her first child Prince George, the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted getting a takeaway coffee from Starbucks, which US Weekly revealed was a skinny decaff latte. The royal supposedly even paid with a Starbucks loyalty card, suggesting she was a regular at the popular spot!

Although the Duchess may have opted for a decaf coffee during her pregnancy, we do know that her daily breakfast provides her with more than enough caffeine to keep her fuelled throughout the day.

We spoke to former royal nutritionist, Jennifer Hanway, who analysed Kate's breakfast smoothie.

"Everything from the kale to the leafy greens is a really great source of nutrients."

Matcha is not only known for its natural caffeine content, but also its antioxidant-rich powers that make it super beneficial for overall health. As reported by Healthline, matcha may fight inflammation in your body, help maintain healthy arteries, and promote cell repair. 

It can even reduce risk of heart disease, aid weightloss, boost relaxation and alertness and boosts brain function. One skinny matcha latte please...
