‘Royal’ Kate goes shopping at supermarket
London: Catherine, the new Duchess of Cambridge, has been spotted strolling down aisles of a supermarket on the island of Anglesey doing weekly shop like any other housewife.
In a loose-fitting green poncho and white V-neck sweatshirt worn with skinny jeans and ballet pumps, Kate pushed a trolley among dozens of shoppers at Waitrose on the island.
It is the first time the Duchess has been out and about in public since she and Prince William departed for a weekend break the next day after marrying at Westminster Abbey.
Onlookers said Kate looked very ordinary, and the only clues to her royal status were three police bodyguards, a back-up car and the jewellery on her wedding finger.
Kate is likely to have been preparing a special dinner for her new husband, who has returned from a busy 24-hour shift as a search and rescue pilot.
“It looked like she was stocking up on the basics, but she also bought a few special items, so perhaps she was preparing their first romantic meal as a married couple,” the Daily Mail quoted an onlooker as saying.
“She loaded all the shopping into her car on her own, then skipped as she ran the trolley back to the park. She looked very happy and was smiling at people.
“Most people didn’t even spot who it was, despite her being probably the most famous person in the world at the moment,” the onlooker added.
