Here she is, Miss Duchess of Cambridge! Finally, after nearly a month of being cooped up after the birth of her royal baby, Prince George, Kate Middleton was able to get some fresh air, even if it was just an errand run. Kate was snapped recently doing a bit of grocery shopping in Anglesey, Wales, where she’s currently living in her and Prince William’s private home. We wonder how she’s coping with that extra little mouth to feed.
Last month, Kate gave birth to her and husband Prince William’s firstborn, and we haven’t seen much of them since. As expected, the couple stayed with Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, at her childhood home in Bucklebury, in the Berkshires, for the first few weeks, then the family moved to their home on the Island of Anglesey, about 5 hours to the North, for a little privacy.
Now we see her out and about for the first time at the Waitrose grocery store, looking super casual and totally relaxed in a (somewhat surprisingly normal) ensemble of black jeans, a striped shirt, and comfy flats. Her baby bump is gone, her hair is back in a high ponytail, and she looks so carefree.
We were more than a little surprised to actually see the royal seals of Her Majesty the Queen and the Prince of Wales on the grocery store’s website homepage, but we understand that any place the royals shop must want to capitalize on the fact that the family chooses their store for their grocery needs!
What is it about Kate that makes her now officially look like a mom? Maybe it’s the easy outfit that says “Black and white. Done and done.” Or maybe it’s her look of sheer concentration as if to say “I’m stocked up and ready to roll.”
She’s certainly a mom on a mission, and we’re so happy to see her out, doing her own shopping and not trying too hard to look perfect. She’s a new mom with bigger priorities, after all!
