It seems that everyone is preparing for Halloween, as well as the royal family. Kate Middleton was seen shopping at Sainsbury, choosing Halloween costumes for Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The royal was seen by other shoppers around 11 am and 12 am this morning using the self-service counter.
Kate, the always fashionable, was wearing a casual black ensemble, and as she was looking around in Sainsbury, she stopped and asked some kids what they were going to dress up as for Halloween.
A customer who was in the store at the same time, Kathy Whittaker, mother of four, was shocked when she saw a royal just casually checking out the Halloween outfits all the while a six-foot bodyguard was always close by.
Kathy explained: “Another shopper said that Kate was in the shop near the clothing and pointed where she was to me. I just couldn’t believe it.
“She was with Charlotte and George looking at Halloween outfits but her bodyguard was kind of watching people with phones and telling them no pictures.
“I managed to get the photo as she was at the self-service check out.
“I didn’t see what she actually bought. The lady that told me she was there had children with her and she said Kate was asking her children what they were going to be for Halloween.
“I think she bought some Halloween bits for her kids but I don’t know what.”
At Sainsbury, the cost for a children’s witch outfit is around 9 pounds with a boy’s skeleton outfit being the same price. Kathy, a local from Norwich, described Kate as “down to earth” and that she looked “beautiful as always”. The Duchess was accompanied by her two oldest children, Prince George, 6, and Princess Charlotte, 4, with the youngest one Prince Louis missing. And yet we are most interested in what Prince Louis will dress up as for Halloween.
She added: “It was so lovely to see her doing normal stuff that you and I do.
“It was so lovely to see her, she is always beautiful. You don’t expect to see that when you go shopping. I couldn’t concentrate on my shopping.
“Kate was wearing black trousers and a black polo neck. Charlotte was wearing a little checkered skirt but I couldn’t see anything else. She was saying: ‘Come on kids’ she just understandably wanted to keep them safe.
“You just don’t expect it to happen, you think Kate would shop in Waitrose or Harrods.
“She just seemed so down to earth and beautiful as always.”
Kate and William both often go out shopping in Norfolk, taking the kids with them, further solidifying their tries at a normal life. The last time Kate was seen with the kids was last December as they looked for some last-minute buys.
This downtime comes after the Duchess returned from her five-day tour of Pakistan with Prince William.
