The Duchess of Cambridge is known to get out and do her own grocery shopping from time to time and it seems she’s happy to do the same when it comes to Halloween costumes.

According to The Mirror, Duchess Catherine shocked local shoppers at a Sainsbury close the family’s country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk, when she was spotted with her two eldest children Prince George, 6, and Princess Charlotte, 4, buying costumes for Halloween – they’re currently on half-term break.

Speaking of the sighting to the publication, mum-of-four Kathy Whittaker says she it was another shopper in the store who pointed Kate out to her, who was browsing the clothing section at the time.

“She was with Charlotte and George looking at Halloween outfits but her bodyguard was kind of watching people with phones and telling them no pictures,” although Kate happily chatted to some of the children in the store, asking them what they were going to be for Halloween.

And while we’d love to know exactly what the George and Charlotte have opted to dress up as for Halloween, Kathy says she isn’t quite sure what they two chose.

Kathy told The Mirror that Kate, who was wearing black trousers and a black polo neck, seemed “down to earth” and looked “beautiful as always”, adding: “It was lovely to see her doing normal stuff that you and I do.”

This certainly isn’t the first time the 37-year-old has been spotted shopping with the ordinary folk.

Last year just before Christmas, the royal mum-of-three was seen at The Range in Norfolk with George and Charlotte looking for last-minute buys and in April last year, just days before the arrival of Prince Louis, Kate was spotted at Waitrose looking for some good grocery deals, according to witnesses.

The onlooker claims Kate bought either a sprig coriander or parsley, apparently with a “25% off” sticker on it, brought along her own recyclable bags and purchased her goods at the self-service check-out system, before packing them into her Land Rover as a royal protection officer stood close by.

Duchess Catherine returned to the UK earlier this week, following a five-day tour of Pakistan with Prince William.

The tour marked the couple’s first visit to the Asian country and remarkably marked Duchess Catherine’s first-ever television news interview since she married into the royal family, eight years ago.

Speaking to CNN correspondent Max Foster during a visit to an SOS Children’s Village in Lahore, Pakistan, Kate, with William by her side spoke of the cause that was very close to her heart.

“William and I really wanted to come and see an SOS Children’s Village like this,” Kate explained.

“There are so many vulnerable women here but they’re really used their positivity and the support that the village here provides them to support and protect the next generation, the children in their care and give them the best possible start to their future lives.”
