Kate Middleton shops for groceriesMay 6th, 2011 - 7:53 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 6 (IANS) Kate Middleton looked like any other young middle-class woman out shopping when she was spotted at a supermarket recently. Clutching a shopping list, she studied packs of chocolate biscuits, washing powder, pasta, and fruit and vegetables, a media report said Friday.
The future Queen, who has lost her wedding-day curls and straightened her hair, hovered over a counter of fresh pizzas on a shopping trip to Waitrose, the Daily Express reported. She emerged from the store with a full trolley before loading five bags into the back of her Audi.
Prince William’s bride has vowed to do without flunkies and live the simple life of an officer’s wife to help give their marriage a good grounding, according to the daily.
It was the first time she had been seen out in public since she and William left in a helicopter for a quiet weekend on the day after their wedding.
In a waterfall cardigan, white cotton jumper and her favourite black Hudson skinny jeans, she even put her trolley back after loading up her car, the Express said.
She chatted with other shoppers and made steady progress around the store.
While his wife stocked up on supplies for their rented farmhouse, Prince William, 28, had been involved in two mountain rescues overnight after going back to work as an RAF search-and-rescue pilot.
