Just because Kate Middleton is among the most recognizable face in the world right now, doesn’t mean that she just stays at home all the time. Today the Duchess of Cambridge, who was with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, mingled with crowds in cut-price outlet The Range and shocked everyone.

Kate was snapped waiting to pay for her items at the till. She bought trolley-loads of pictures, children’s books and artist materials then queued at the tills. One mum said: “I did a double-take when I saw her. You don’t expect to see royals shopping at The Range.” It is believed Kate was buying for fellow royals.

Before Kate Middleton was the Duchess of Cambridge she was a normal girl who lived in a London apartment with her younger sister, Pippa, and shopped at Waitrose supermarket like everybody else. It looks like some things never change, as Kate’s been seen doing grocery shopping many times after she married Prince William and tries to keep her everyday life as normal as possible.

Hello! magazine reports that the royals often avoid the media by getting in and out of the palace in a helicopter and go to nearby Hyde Park, so no one really notices the family leaving Kensington Palace.
