She may be perfect, but sometimes even Kate Middleton makes mistakes. Recently, the Duchess of Cambridge took Prince George and Princess Charlotte shopping for new shoes -- but instead of having everything she needed for the excursion with her kids, Kate Middleton made a classic mom mistake

  • Evidently, when Kate took George and Charlotte school shoe shopping, she forgot to pack socks for the kiddies.

  • According to The Sun, George and Charlotte were wearing sandals when they went to try on new shoes and the duchess didn't have spare socks handy.

    The little prince and princess wound up having to do what every kid does when their mom forgets a pair of socks: They had to borrow. 


  • George and Charlotte wearing common socks? It's almost unbelievable!

  • Obviously, this is a mistake almost every parent has made before. And who knows? Maybe the shopping trip was impromptu, in which case it would make sense for Kate not to have socks on her.

    To be honest, the idea of Kate taking the kids shoe shopping in and of itself is almost too normal to wrap our brains around. Throw in a parenting mistake and it's like we're living parallel lives to the duchess. 

  • We can only imagine that cool-as-an-English-cucumber Kate simply laughed off the error and went about her business of buying her kids new shoes.

    And truth be told, this is hardly a mom fail anyway. 

    Kate, we love you. And we love you even more when we hear stories like this. We like to imagine, if only for a moment, that you're a regular mom just like us.
