Just because she's royalty doesn't mean she's lost her sense ... fashion or common.
Savvy shopper that she is, Duchess Kate Middleton took advantage of some end-of-season sales and hit London's Chelsea neighborhood this week in search of good deals.
Was her endeavor successful? What did she find?
An onlooker says the royal, who just turned 30 earlier this month, shopped at the store Anonymous by Ross+Bute, trying on some new pieces from the spring and summer collection, including a pink cardigan and boots.
Sshe decided on a marked-down Jewel Collar V-Neck Top, a grey, form-fitting merino lightweight sweater accented with a bejeweled necklace attached along the neckline.
It was on sale for 84.50 GBP, $129 USD (from 169 GBP, $259 USD).
While checking out with her only purchase, the Duchess paused and admired a clutch bag, but decided not to buy it. Her visit to the shop lasted about 20 minutes.
