The 34-year-old sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has admitted she "can't start the day" without having something delicious for breakfast, but fans won't catch her chowing down on pancakes topped with bacon and maple syrup - which is a favourite morning meal in countries including America and Canada - as she doesn't find the combination appealing.

When asked to name one thing she would never eat for breakfast, Pippa said: "Pancakes with bacon and maple syrup - that certainly doesn't do it for me."

Pippa prefers to indulge healthier morning treats such as fruit and yoghurt or rye bread with eggs, and won't start her day without making sure she has eaten properly.

She said: "I always have breakfast. I can't start the day properly without it. My usual breakfast is either plain yogurt with chopped fruit and toasted seeds, oats and nuts or toasted rye bread with eggs or avocado."

Pippa - who married James Matthews last year - also told the i newspaper that her all-time favourite breakfast experience was "up a mountain in the Trois Vallées ski region of France, with beautiful views, snow all around and crisp, fresh air to heighten the senses."

The socialite supports the Magic Breakfast charity, which provides free, healthy breakfast cereals and bagels for children in disadvantaged areas of the UK who arrive at school too hungry to learn.

Alex Cunningham, general manager of Magic Breakfast, said: "It is fantastic to have Pippa's support. She took part in a cross-country skiing race with her brother five years ago for us. It was really excellent - she quietly chose to support Magic Breakfast and raised a lot of money for the charity.

"She always has breakfast and can't start the day properly without it, so like Magic Breakfast, she clearly values the importance of breakfast."
