The Duchess of Cambridge has proved once again that she is just like everyone else.


On April 2, 2018, Kate Middleton has been pictured doing some shopping in Waitrose supermarket in Norfolk. According to a royal expert, her latest outing is considered strange, as reported by Inquistr.

The 36-year-old royal, who is due this month, April 2018, visited a branch of her favorite supermarket in Norfolk. Though she is currently on maternity leave, Kate was seen browsing the aisles of the store on Easter Monday.

The Duchess wore a dusty-rose colored coat, black skinny jeans, and heeled boots. She was with a protection officer, who was on standby nearby.

Kate was photographed by a fellow shopper while checking some product. The expectant mother even appeared to have purchased a plant, with a “25 percent off” price tag.


According to the onlooker, Kate was using the Quick Check system, which allows the customers to scan and pack their own purchases as they go through the store, presenting a running total on a device.

Outside the store, the same shopper spotted Kate loading the bags into her Range Rover. The shopper even claimed that the pregnant royal spoke to them, saying “hello.”

Meanwhile, Kelly Lynch, a royal expert, considered Kate's outing as "strange" because it is unusual for the royals to be spotted doing their tasks in public.


Several British outlets are also not allowed to take or publish candid images of the royal members in their private lives because of an agreement with the palace, Kelly explained.

Recently, All Cute All The Time reported that Kate is afflicted with hyperemesis gravidarum. This rare condition is a type of nausea and vomiting that occurs only during pregnancy.

This is worse than the morning sickness and passive nausea commonly experienced by most pregnant women.

Kate has suffered from this during each of her three pregnancies. She experienced severe nausea, fainting, extreme dizziness, and persistent vomiting.


If not addressed, the symptoms can have serious implications. Persistent vomiting can lead to severe dehydration for the mother and the child.

Kate's condition had concerned Prince William so much, especially during her third pregnancy. He had Kate stop her royal outings one month before her due date. Doctors had advised Kate to spend the next weeks getting as much rest as she can.
