The Duchess of Cambridge worked hard for her slim post-pregnancy figure, and now she's taking on an unusual diet to boost her complexion.

When the royal family visited New Zealand in April this year, upon sight of Kate, fans remarked how "she's even thinner in real life".

The Daily Mail reports the size six mother has adopted the "raw food diet" in attempt to improve her glowing complexion, and help maintain her weight.

In particular, she is said to enjoy the popular Latin American dish ceviche -- raw fish marinated in the juice of lemons or limes and spices.

Other dishes from the diet include watermelon salads, gazpacho (raw vegetable soup), goji berries, tabbouleh (a vegetarian dish), and almond milk.

Hollywood Life reported the 32-year-old is "happy with her body" but wants to improve her skin tone.

Believers of the trend say it promotes glowing skin and stronger nails, because raw food is a better source of vitamins and nutrients.

Most popular foods on the diet include uncooked fruit and vegetables, grains, beans, fish, and fermented foods such as miso, kimchee, and sauerkraut.

Actress Scarlett Johansson reportedly followed a raw vegan diet when preparing for The Avengers, and Demi Moore's youthful appearance is also credited to a raw food diet.
