What's a day in the life of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, anyway?

While she may indulge in thrice-weekly blowouts — and he is sometimes called away for 24-hour shifts as an operational captain in the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force — Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 30, live a relatively calm and private life at home in Anglesey, North Wales.

"Kate is a military wife, supporting her husband whenever possible," says a press officer. When they do get to spend time together, William "believes romance is important," another source says. "He's not cheesy, but he does like to make romantic gestures," like picking up a treat for his gal on the way home from shifts.

Here, Us Weekly breaks down the daily routines of Kate and William during a typical week.

Kate's Typical Day in London


Go for 7 a.m. run on grounds of Kensington Palace or Kensington Park with pup Lupo (accompanied by a protection officer). Have a healthy breakfast (porridge is a favorite); meet with Household Office; read latest reports from charities.


Take meetings with representatives from various charities. Attend any public engagements, such as the Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Squeeze in lunchtime hair appointment!


Have dinner at home with Will. "If William is not in London, she'll spend time with Pippa [Middleton], who comes for a visit when they're both free," says a source.
