Food is a Family Affair: Kate, William AND George Visit Waitrose in Anglesey

Monday, August 26, 2013



Before you get too excited... William and George stayed in the car. But, the new little royal family did stop off at Waitrose to pick up groceries.  As usual, Kate's hair looks ridiculously luscious. Glossy and full; I wish I had that woman's hair. It is just too gorgeous. I know we all want Kate's hair... 



Kate was channeling her inner parisienne with a loose fitting striped shirt, her skinnies, and the Sebago shoes she debuted on the North American tour. Despite her figure flattering move to wear the more forgiving loose cut of this shirt, she looks pretty incredible given how recently she has given birth.  Obviously, she has not shed all her baby weight yet, which no one would reasonably expect, but she looks like she is well on her way! If you didn't know who she was, you would have no idea! I imagine she will be looking pretty stunning by the September Tusk Trust Gala to which she is going! (I love that she is wearing stripes! I have a tendency to overdose on stripes myself and I now feel partially justified.)

I think it is cute that the whole family came along on this trip.  I wonder if they were coming back from something? Kate usually does the shopping on her own. She has been spotted shopping in Anglesey many times.

Reminding us how amazing her hair is:


A satisfied customer. Kate appeared to be almost clearing air as she (skipped?) made her way to her car:


She really likes to wear the purple Ralph Lauren for her store runs:


Etc, etc. She always looks effortless, relaxed, and beautiful. Hopefully, inspiring women around the globe to put just a little thought into wardrobe before striking out for any public errand, even grocery shopping. Deliver us from the pajama pants, but I digress.

Well, one question is answered, the trio has not left for Scotland...yet. I am holding out hope for the middle-end of the week. We shall see.  In the meantime, fingers are still crossed that Kate will join William on a final appearance in Anglesey before they move away!

    1. People "on the scene" reported that William waited with George in the car! No pictures of the two have emerged, which is probably just as well. One reason they stayed in the car was probably to avoid being photographed. And of course, the significant added furor...

  2. I hope she keeps some of the weight she gained on her. She looks so pretty and vibrantly healthy with just that extra 5 to 10 lbs.

    1. Well, I hope she gets back to the weight at which she is comfortable and happy. She looks beautiful now, but she also looked stunning at her slimmer pre-baby body. A lot agree that they like her with more rather than less weight...

  4. I think that she is a beautiful person and she looks great with that stripe shirt and the black pants. I hope you leaves on the weight that she has on her right now because she looks great and healthy.

    1. She looks great now, but I suspect she will lose a more weight before she stops. And I think she will still be lovely then, too.

  5. She's looking pretty impressive after giving birth although I guess if all women had the time and support Kate does to exercise and eat well, then more people could look like her. She still looks amazing though, I wonder how she got her body back - yoga, Pilates?

    1. Well, Pippa is a very dedicated fan of Pilates, and there were reports that the two of them would do Pilates together during Kate's pregnancy. This would make sense because it is a very thorough and effective, but safe, workout, perfect for a pregnant mom. Since you can't hit the gym right after having a baby, I imagine Kate is being pretty disciplined about what she is eating. That's definitely a HUGE factor in weight loss and she could slim down significantly just watching her meals. Lastly, I am pretty sure she is breastfeeding, and that helps you lose weight as well. Once she is cleared for the gym, I am sure she will start toning up quickly as well...

  7. Hello Jane! Can we be really sure that these pic were taken in the last couple of days? Someone on twitter mentioned that she was seen wearing the same dress which she had in the official photos. And then these pic were published. What do you think? Her hair is amazing.A.

    1. Hi there, well you always want to be careful, but we really have only had a few photos circulated of Kate that turned out to be older than we thought, and when that happens there are usually only one or two from unidentified sources. PopSugar has a complete set of these and looking at the pictures makes it all seem to fit. She is absolutely more full-figured than the pre-baby Kate, so that narrows time-frame, she is wearing a loose shirt to accommodate that, she is wearing the sunglasses she has been wearing recently, we haven't seen this shirt on some other occasion where we might suspect the photos came from, etc, etc. I don't see any reason to think these are not up-to-date. It does pay to be careful, though! Thanks for reading and for commenting!

    1. Hi Martina! Yes, and THANK YOU! I should have mentioned you in the post... I was in a rush. :( They were, to the best of my knowledge, in the car, yes. Wouldn't it have been something if all three had gone in? It would have been too crazy, but something to laugh about.

    2. Oh never mind! :-D I think that maybe the just stopped to buy nappies! I think you can see them in the bags... If William was there I'm sure he wanted to protect george!

  10. Yes, she looks stunning in this casual you and me go shopping outfit. My guess it is a recent photo as she seems to have more chest measurement.

    She does indeed look so so fabulous, but I also think her face looks a little stressed and tired. I remember having my first child (thirty years ago) as if it were yesterday, and I was a complete mess. Having someone take photos can only add to the strain; some have even identified nursing pads in one of her bags. I know, I know, I'm looking, and I know that it comes with the territory, but I really do feel sympathy. I'm glad she has a great support system. That's so important for any new mom.

    1. Good one Elizabeth! I did a Google image search and that blue box looks like Lansinoh nursing pads to me.

  12. Hi again! Can anyone tell what's in her shopping bags, namely the one hanging down with a pale blue box inside? Looks like it could be baby-related and therefore confirm the recent ness of the pics...

  13. meaning absolutely no disrespect to any of the lovely ladies reading this blog but I personally find it ubber creepy that people are trying to find out what items are in her shopping bag - especially something as intimate as nursing pads. I realize they may be slightly visible from the bag but still. Maybe I am a prude or something but I just don't like that. It's nice to see her out and about etc but I have ZERO desire to know what she buys. I felt the same way when previous pics were posted of her inside the grocery store. It just crosses a line for me.

      I agree. Part of the point I was trying to make was that she looked stressed and that the photos and the fact folks are identifying her items seemed intrusive. Yes, it's like the time she was putting stuff on the conveyer belt, and I saw that on the national news! Emotionally, she's got to be more fragile right now because of hormones and fatigue. As I also said, I know that here I am looking at the photos; I really enjoy this blog. This time I just felt this surge of sympathy when I looked at her face.

    2. I'm so sorry, I really didn't mean any disrespect to her or anyone else with my comment. I'm so embarrassed and wasn't even thinking along those lines. I thought I was being a little detective, but I can see how my post could be taken the wrong way. Please accept my apologies. I'm really not a creepy person, I was just excited to see her again and wanting to confirm that the pictures are current and that she does in fact look THAT great after having George. I'm really,sincerely sorry that my comment rubbed anyone the wrong way.
