Princess Charlene: Royal’s diet includes ‘important’ tip to stay slim and healthy
Princess Charlene, 44, is the wife of Prince Albert of Monaco and the mother of their two children, Jacques and Gabriella. The royal is a former Olympic swimmer and although she doesn’t train as much as she used to, she still remains active. How does she maintain her slender figure?
Princess Charlene retired from Olympic swimming when she joined the Monaco royal family in 2011.
But since then she’s stayed active and lean, although she once admitted she’s not a fan of the gym.
She stays fit and healthy in other ways, including focusing on her diet.
But she has previously admitted it can be difficult as “there’s not really consistency” in royal life.

“My days are never the same and you can’t really choose what you eat at events,” Charlene told Women’s Health.
However, when she can, Charlene makes sure to try to eat a healthy, balanced diet.
She continued, “I try to eat lots of fish and fresh fruits and vegetables.
“And I drink lots of water – it’s important to stay hydrated.”

Charlene isn’t afraid to eat whatever she wants sometimes though.
She said, “Don’t be too strict with yourself.
“A dessert once in a while isn’t so bad.”
Although she is no longer a professional athlete, Charlene reportedly continues to swim regularly and enjoys trying new activities, such as paddle boarding.
Born in Zimbabwe but raised in South Africa, Charlene represented her home country at the 2000 Olympics.
The previous year, at the 1999 All Africa Games in Johannesburg, she had won three gold medals and a silver medal.
Charlene only married Prince Albert in July 2011, but she had met him more than a decade before at the Mare Nostrum swimming competition in Monte Carlo.
In December 2014, Charlene gave birth to twins Gabriella and Jacques.
