This past Monday, Kate Middleton and her two eldest kiddos, George and Charlotte, were seen shopping at a London store — and apparently, the thrifty mother had her brood stick to a strict budget.
The group decided to head into Smiggle — a popular UK chain that sells stationery, school supplies, and other novelty items.
The manager of the store reported that a woman named Alexa tweeted out details about the family’s shopping escapade. And while she missed watching the experience, her fellow employees filled her in on the details.
“I’ve always been a Kate Middleton fan,” Alexa wrote.
“Today, she was in one of my stores on the King’s Road with George and Charlotte, and what the team told me about how she was with them and how the kids were with each other makes me like her even more!”
“The kids had a budget that they stuck to and they paid for their own things with their own money,” Alexa continued in her Twitter post.
“Just normal, well-brought-up children and a normal parent trying to do the right thing, and that’s just lovely!”
But this is not the first time Kate’s parenting has been publicly praised.
Just last year, Kate was found shopping at Sainsbury’s in King’s Lynn near the family’s Anmer Hall country home in Norfolk.
And on that same day, all three of her kiddos were with her, and many were enamored with how polite and well-behaved George, Charlotte, and Louis appeared.
“They were looking at the clothes when I saw them. Charlotte was looking at the dresses,” an eyewitness told Hello! at the time. “Kate looked lovely, and the children were beautiful. They were so well-behaved.”
