We really are being quite fortunate with photos of Kate today. After the 30 year old's splendid first speech earlier today she changed into casual attire and enjoyed some retail therapy.
Kate spent over half an hour in department store Peter Jones on the Kings road before leaving with two large bags. I thought it was interesting that she carried her own bags. Despite her royal status and worldwide popularity she is very down to earth. Kate's shopping bags appeared quite full, From what we see Kate purchased lampshades. Kate has previously been spotted buying homeware there.
A look at the store.
Kate appears to be wearing the Emilio Pucci double breasted jacket she wore whilst visiting GB's hockey team. It is available for £1,145.00 at Selfridge's.
Kate kept warm wearing her Aquascutum Club Check Scarf. The pretty scarf is available for £85.
Duchess Kate was last photographed wearing the scarf in August, shopping at her local Tesco. I adored this look and have been a huge of fan of wearing skinny jeans and London Sole ballet flats ever since.
Today's engagement marks the end of Kate's weekly appearances for a while. William will be returning from the Falklands any time now and Kate will resume life as a serviceman's wife in Anglesey. However I'm quite sure it won't be too long until we see her again, she was photographed walking Lupo last week and I expect those photos will surface sooner rather than later :)
A lovely photo of Kate playing hockey with Team GB graces the cover of Hello! this week. (I believe Kate is their cover girl on a weekly basis now :))
Should better photos surface of Kate's shopping trip I'll update the post. I'll be holding a poll on Kate's best solo engagement look in the next few days. Looking forward to seeing which outfit you choose!
