Kate Middleton left many green with envy when she showed off her slender post-pregnancy figure last month just nine weeks after giving birth to Prince George, so it’s no surprise then that she has topped a poll for the body women most admire.
The Duchess of Cambridge beat off some pretty stiff competition, including Jennifer Aniston’s lean and honed physique, which came second, and Beyonce bootilicious body, which came a close third in a poll conducted by Ideal Weight.
According to spokeswoman Kirsty Powell, Kate’s top position has been helped by her sensible attitude to her weight loss following George’s birth.
She said: “With her sensible attitude to weight loss post-pregnancy, we’re not surprised that Kate Middleton tops the list of celebrity figures we admire. We’re even more pleased to hear that mums are no longer being so heavily influenced by celebrities.”
Kate amazed everyone when she stepped out five weeks after giving birth in July, revealing just the tiniest hint of a bump. At the time sources revealed that the Duchess had lost the weight through breastfeeding and yogo.
“Kate’s still breastfeeding and the small weight she gained while pregnant has just melted off,” a source told Us Weekly, adding: “She’s not dieting. After giving birth, she did continue with her yoga.”

1. Kate Middleton (21%)

3. Beyoncé (11%)
4. Kelly Brooke (10%)
5. Nigella Lawson (6%)
