Kate Middleton's Recent Behavior Proves She's Still a Commoner at Heart

Kate Middleton

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?

lazy katie IS NOT practical or thrifty, may be she should return the millions she has wasted rrenovating kensington palace only to complain she feels trapped, she has now moved to Anmer hall, where she will renovate more millions wasted again and on security, she NEVER works, she makes 2 or 3 appearances a month cutting ribbons and waving then she goes into hiding, SHES A WASTE OF TAXPAYERS MONEY SHES USELESS!!

Discounted Gucci? She's a real penny pincher! How can you compare the Duchess buying outlet Lacoste pjs for a one year old to a "thrifty mom" shopping at TJ Maxx? Those are still some expensive pjs that the little prince will grow out of rather quickly!
