The Duchess is reportedly a big fan of weight training, so it's no surprise her muscles are impressive. Her passion for tennis will help with her toned arms too.

Tennis helps to tone muscles and build strength, so Duchess Kate's commitment to being on the courts likely contributes to her envy-inducing arms.

The royal's love of CrossFit will also help with her impressive arms; the high-intensity interval training includes push-ups, shoulder presses and overhead squats, all known to shape the arms.
