Kate Middleton got a discount while shopping at an antique store while she was pregnant with Prince George. On Oct. 9, MSN reported that Duchess Kate -- who can arguably afford anything that her heart desires -- asked for a discount when she found an item that she liked. Once again this act shows that Kate is normal and that even though she is now considered royalty, she's still a regular girl -- who can appreciate a good sale!
"She was looking at various things and asked for a discount," said Caroline Combe, who owns the Old Stables shop in Norfolk with her husband, Roger (via MSN).
The Kate Middleton discount might be a running joke at Old Stables now but it's sort of cute that Kate even asked for a price break. It's no doubt that the Duchess likes to shop -- and it's nice to see that she is trying to save her husband, Prince William, a couple of bucks when she can.
Given the fact that Kate does a lot of her own shopping no one is really surprised that she was in an antique shop. She and William are making their house a home and that means she has to buy a few things to really make the place feel cozy. Wouldn't you love to know what she purchased?
Kate Middleton doesn't get a discount everywhere she goes -- but she is clearly a bargain hunter -- and there's nothing wrong with that. Duchess or not.
