Duchess Catherine went shopping for sale bargains on the King’s Road yesterday (17.01.12).
The 30-year-old royal headed straight for Anonymous by Ross+Bute and tried on a number of items in the changing room, eventually settling on a purple jewel top, priced at £84.50, down from £169.
Catherine – who spends most of her time living in North Wales where her husband Prince William is working as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot – has often been seen on the King’s Road indulging in retail therapy, and uses the nearby Richard Ward salon to get her famous hair cut.
Last year the duchess enjoyed a spending spree at Topshop on Kensington High Street, where she purchased a blue jacket and polka-dot skirt, and onlookers at the store were said to be impressed by her “normal” attitude.
A source said: “She was low-key and casual – she seemed so normal. She was really chilled out despite some customers in the queue behind her saying, ‘Oh my God it’s her’ and pointing – she didn’t seem fazed by it all and she was really sweet.
“I haven’t seen her before so I don’t think she’s a regular.”
