It is claimed the two little ones even paid for the things they were buying from their own pocket money.

The shopping trip comes just days after the duchess played peacemaker between Prince Charles, her husband Prince William and Prince Harry following the funeral of Prince Philip on Saturday.

She is said to have joined the trio at Frogmore Cottage, where Harry is staying during his UK stay to pay respects to his late grandfather, who died aged 99 on April 9.

After the funeral service held at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, Prince Charles and his two sons apparently took two hours to chat, with the duchess also present.




Two days later, 39-year-old Kate was spotted in her favourite shopping location of the King’s Road, where she was regularly seen when she was dating William.

She was accompanied by George and Charlotte, who onlookers said were beautifully behaved.

The pair will soon be going back to school following the Easter holidays but were seen with their mum buying some things ahead of their return.


Alexa, who works in the store the duchess visited, Tweeted: “I’ve always been a Kate Middleton fan… today she was in one of my stores on the Kings Road with George and Charlotte, what the team told me about how she was with them and how the kids were with each other makes me like her even more!”

And she went on: “I wasn’t there but she talked to my team, the kids had a budget that they stuck to and paid for their own things with their own money.

“Just normal well brought up children and a normal parent trying to do the right thing and that’s just lovely!”

Alexa refused to name the store, saying it wasn’t important.


Alexa replied to one follower who questioned her: “The name of the store is irrelevant really.”

The Cambridges divide their time between Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which lies 12 miles from King’s Lynn.

The duchess is known to try and keep her children’s lives as normal as possible and has often been seen enjoying normal family trips with them.

She has also been spotted shopping in King’s Lynn herself, going to Sainsbury’s shortly before lockdown last year.
