Retail Therapy for Royal-To-Be
Who’s to say that Kate Middleton has to give up her regular life? With just over a week to her big day, the royal-to-be was trying to enjoy a regular day out shopping, spotted in London’s King’s Road engaging in a bit of retail therapy. And good for her. It looked like she only had a couple of protection officers with her, with one of them in very casual clothing.
Still, there was no mistaking the class of the Queen-in-waiting who was dressed in a short-sleeved black wrap dress priced at £480 from Issa, perhaps not what a regular shopper would be clad in. As well, her feet were adorned with tan court kitten heels, but these were hardly new as she has been seen in them four years ago! Of course, her 19-carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring might have ultimately been what stood her out from the rest as the royal-to-be that she is.
Who knows what she was buying at Whistles? Perhaps something for her honeymoon wardrobe; but the store refrained to divulge such information. She was also spotted in Warehouse, a mid-market chain, engaging in a spot of High Street shopping.
So Miss Middleton may be about to be a royal, but she still likes her fun girly retail outings like the rest of us. And why shouldn’t she? She’s still a girl at heart, no matter what her regal status might be.
