Kate Is Casual For Shopping Trip to Zara Home

Friday, October 25, 2013


Life appears to return to normal, as Kate was spotted shopping in Chelsea today, accompanied by a protection officer, of course. t is nice to see her more after her pregnancy hiatus. It seems with the move into KP accomplished, and the christening out of the way, she is back in her more patterned stride. Perhaps she is tweaking the décor at her new KP apartment, since she was carrying a number of bags from Zara Home.


Kate was all casual in a loose button down shirt, light sweater, skinnies, and grey plimsolls. It is a little late in October for no coat, and it seems like the Duchess was feeling the chill more than once.


It looks like she is wearing her wedding band as well as her engagement ring, but it seems she has turned the sapphire in so that it doesn't cause attention. I haven't seen this necklace before, although I may just be noticing today. It appears to be a cluster of items including a miniature baby and a heart? Am I seeing things? Perhaps, this is her push present? Someone suggested the ring on her right hand yesterday might have been, but if that is a baby figurine then my vote would go with the necklace. 

Popsugar has loads more great snaps. Check them out here

  1. Wow Jane, you are too fast with these stories and pictures!!! I love seeing casual photos of Kate, going about her normal business. I see what you are saying about the necklace. Could be that the ring was a present from Will and the necklace a present from Pippa or a close friend. There is no rule that a woman can only recieve one "push present". :)

    I really like her shoes, I need to find a pair for myself. They are casual but the color (instead of white) prevents them from looking like tennis shoes or gym shoes. I wish I could wear those skinny jeans but am a little too hippy to really pull off this style.

    Also, I like how she pairs an $800 pair of earrings with her jeans and casual blouse. No rule that says you can't wear your nice jewelry with your jeans.

    1. Kate was too fast! :) It was a royal whirlwind few days, which I think we all were happy to be caught up in! So glad you enjoyed the post. It is so great that she is out again. I agree, a girl can never get too much jewelry. I think it will be pretty impossible to figure out unless someone confirms the situation.

      I love that even when casual she looks very put together--as I believe we all should. I am very much against the hoodie and sweats look. She is not only respectful of others in her dress, but it is so fun to put together cute looks! We all owe it to ourselves to go the extra distance.

    2. Haha, well, we have certainly seen Kate in a scrunchie before. NOW, a Cressida sized scrunch, not unless Kate is in costume! :)

  4. Obviously these photos have not been photoshopped. It is healthy for the public to see celebrities as they really
    appear, imperfections and all. People forget that beautiful people get a lot of help from expensive beauty treatments for their bodies, face and hair. Many have surgical procedures they deny ever getting. If I could ski as Kate does, eat healthy gourmet meals, go to the salon every week, live in a palace and be tended to; I would also look fantastic all the time. Lol!!

    1. No, I don't think these photos were photoshopped, either. The christening photos certainly were, as was to be expected. Part of the photography fee is what they call "edits" which is another way of saying photoshop. The photographer might play with the lighting, erase a few wrinkles or blemishes, etc, until the picture is as he/she likes it. It is an extension of their art. But, o, these pap shots are certainly not photoshopped, I agree. Kate is a naturally beautiful woman.

  5. Hello, Jane ! I have 2 questions : 1/ What is a push present ?
    2/ Why do the covers of trashy magazines in France pretend Kate suffers from post-baby depression ? !! x

    1. Hey!!! Ok, a push present is the "thank-you" gift that has become popular for husbands to give their wives after delivering. Tiffany really pushes those rings you are supposed to give your wife, but in general I think the idea is a special piece of jewelry to commemorate the birth, in addition to a "thanks for suffering" aspect. :) Anytime someone wants to give me jewelry, it will be accepted.

      Oh la la, les français. :) It isn't just France! UK, Italy, America, all the low ends supermarkets rags seem to have crazy and sensational stories. Kate is fighting with Camilla, The Queen is dying and wants William on the throne, William and Kate have an explosive fight and are filing for divorce. I have seen so many crazy headlines! I have no idea how or why they make so much up, but it must sell newspapers to the crazies. Plenty of those out there.

      I hope you haven't been hit by the storm! I saw Boulogne-sur-mer had some pretty nasty weather!

    2. Hello, dear Jane ! Thanks for that lovely reply and just to reassure you, Paris had some fairly strong winds and a few showers but nothing to be scared of. I rather think it cleared the air of all the dirt and pollution and that's always welcome !xx

  6. Yay! Casual shots of her are always the best and I wish they would pop up more often because, post-marriage, we only get them once in a blue moon. Fair enough I guess, as lessons have been learned from Diana's life and she deserves her privacy, but still...it's always so exciting to see her out and about, just roaming the streets (albeit with her royal protection officer, who is hilariously described as her 'friend' by PopSugar, lol). Looove her sneakers in these shots!!

  7. Hi Jane. I've seen today on the Daily Mail online page, a new ( I supposed official) photo of the cute new family from George's christening. Do you know if it's official?
    I love this blog!!!
