The down to earth Duchess may have all the Royal jewels at her disposal, but she debated over a pair of $13 earrings — and left them behind with the cashier! Kate also used the fitting rooms & waited on line!
Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, might be trying to keep a low profile — but it looks like she can’t give up a trip to one of her favorite shopping stops! Kate popped into the Topshop on Kensington High Street, right around the corner from where she lives with William, on Monday, Sept. 26, 20 minutes before the store was about to close — and she was waiting in line! It looks like the down to earth Duchess really is just like us. Not only did she wait in line to pay for her purchases, (she did so with a silver Visa card), but she also sifted through her things to find her rewards card — can you believe she’s still such a frugal shopper?
According to one lucky blogger who found herself waiting in line right behind Kate, the Duchess scooped up a polka-dot pencil skirt, velvet-trim jacket, and a pair of earrings. Kate really puts thought into her purchases — while she had two pairs of earrings in her hand, she made up her mind and left one pair behind with the cashier! With all the gorgeous royal jewels at her disposal, Kate debated over a pair of $13 earrings!
The cashier who waited on Kate told the blogger that the Duchess took her time in the store, browsing, and even trying on clothes in the fitting room! I don’t know about you, but I love how despite her title and her status Kate’s just a normal girl — and she still manages to find time for a quick shopping trip!
