It looks like Kate Middleton could definitely teach the celebrity moms out there a thing or two when it comes to spending money on designer clothes for their growing babies.
The Duchess has once again proved that she is the anti-Kim Kardashian with her latest move that is bound to shock even the biggest names and most stylish people in the entertainment world.
Apparently, Middleton was recently spotted doing a little outlet shopping for her 1-year-old son, Prince George. According to the UK’s Daily Record, Middleton has shown again why she’s our favorite Discount Duchess:
The Duchess of Cambridge was seen checking out Lacoste for pajamas for Prince George as she looked around the shops at Bicester Village in Oxfordshire. Kate also took a look for discounts in Ralph Lauren, Temperley, and Gucci during her visit to the popular shopping destination.
God, I love this woman. Her son is the future King of England, yet she is so down-to-earth and like us when it comes to being practical and thrifty. It wouldn’t surprise me if she stopped by a Target store or did a little shopping at TJ Maxx during her next trip to the States. Could you imagine bumping into her in the kids’ department at Target? I would DIE.
But it’s a good thing that Kate is bargain shopping for her son. I mean, we all know how fast children grow out of their clothes when they’re young and still growing, and paying retail prices for designer clothes seems like such a waste of money. I know Kim probably loves dressing her daughter North West in the latest Roberto Cavalli dresses, but they’re probably worth nothing the moment she takes a diaper-less wiz in them (I’m sure it’s happened!).
Do you think Kate Middleton is setting a good example for other celebrities by shopping at outlet stores?
