Kate Middleton shops, sparking honeymoon speculation
The High Street princess is back.
Forget talk of haute couture wedding gowns and designer bridesmaid dresses, Kate Middleton threw the British public a low-cost fashion lifeline Tuesday by purchasing four dresses for 225 pounds sterling ($350) at a commoner's shop.
Luckily, the PR team at Warehouse were on hand to quickly issue a press release on her purchases, hoping to cash in on the league of young royal watchers eager to emulate Kate's style.
The bride-to-be was also spotted shopping on King's Road by the Daily Mail on Wednesday (right photo). Except for a lone bodyguard, Kate, looking slim and happy, easily melted into the shopping crowd.
So, what did Kate buy in her 20-minute jaunt around Warehouse?
A tropical bird print dress, a bright floral frill dress, a feather print one shoulder dress and lace trim square blouse. All of her purchases were size 8s and ranged from 45-65 pounds sterling ($70-$100).
Vanessa, the store manager at the Warehouse King's Road location Kate dropped-in on, gushed: "It was really great to meet her, she was really down to to earth and lovely."
Surprisingly, Vanessa also added: "She loved what she bought."
Of course the fact that Kate bought such summery dresses has sparked speculation that her honeymoon is going to be somewhere hot, with Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean all being named as wager worthy options.
Britain is also experiencing a spring heat wave, so if the dresses are any indication you could also put your money on Bromley.
