Keeping Up with the Cambridges- August 17

KUWTC rect

 

There are weeks when Kate has her Royal duties and must always be “The Duchess of Cambridge”, and then there are weeks when Kate is just Kate. To see those two lives back to back just shows us what a blessed and extraordinary life Catherine leads. While it is wonderful to see Kate out publicly on official events giving back to the community, my favorite moments are when she gets to enjoy a slice of the normal life…

This Week:

  • August 11- Bicester Bargaining! On Monday, news came out that Kate had been seen doing a bit of shopping at Bicester Village, which is a group of premium outlet shops in Oxfordshire. Home to discounted designer stores such as L.K Bennett, Reiss, Ted Baker and more, it is a playground for the Duchess-of-the-High Street with all of her favorite brands in one place. Kate was seen browsing in Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Temperley for herself, and in Lacoste for George. A sales associate observed Kate checking out some cute baby pajamas and noted that she was very friendly and down to earth. For more information on Bicester Village, check out our feature here!

  • August 14- Family pub time! Ok, ok, this happened a couple of weeks ago during the first week in August but it is too fun not to share. Our Twitter sleuths discovered that William, Kate, Pippa, and the Middleton parents enjoyed a cozy supper at The Pot Kiln pub in Frilsham one Saturday evening. Frilsham is a small village in Berkshire, which is a stone’s throw away from the Middleton’s Bucklebury home. A fellow diner reported that they were two tables away and indulged in the homemade scotch eggs! It’s lovely to hear that Will and Kate are still so close to the Middletons and take time for both sides of the family. Now if only I could find a way to be adopted…
