She was looking for bargains with George and Charlotte!

You don’t really expect that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, would pound the pavements to do her Christmas shopping, much less be scouting out bargains.

But the mum of three was spotted doing just that on Sunday, as she took a trip to The Range in Norfolk on Sunday!

Shocked onlookers claim she bought children’s books, pictures and artists’ materials.

One parent told The Sun: “I recognised little Prince George holding Kate’s hand and Charlotte with a red bow in her hair.

“The protection officers were keeping a discreet distance so they looked like any other family out grabbing last minute Christmas bargains.”

The mother said that she had asked the Duchess for a selfie but Kate politely declined.

Kate, William and their young children will all attend the Queen’s Christmas at Sandringham tomorrow.

At 11am on Christmas Day they then walk to St Mary Magdalene church for the Christmas morning service.

Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were all smiles as they arrived for The Queen’s Christmas lunch.

Her Majesty opened the doors to Buckingham Palace to welcome the royals for her annual Christmas feast.

Kate and William arrived in one car alongside their son Prince George, five, and their daughter Princess Charlotte, three, while Harry and pregnant Meghan arrived in a separate car.
