Kate Middleton has been spotted shopping with Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the West End of London.

A Twitter user who works at an unspecified King's Road store has revealed that her colleagues reportedly witnessed the Duchess of Cambridge with her two eldest children – and claimed the Duchess gave them a budget to buy their own things.

The tweet, from a user called Alexa, read: “I’ve always been a Kate Middleton fan… today she was in one of my stores on the Kings Road with George and Charlotte, 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!”

When asked for more information, the shop worker followed up with more details, claiming: “I wasn’t there but she talked to my team, the kids had a budget that they stuck to and paid for their own things with their own money. Just normal well brought up children and a normal parent trying to do the right thing and that’s just lovely.”

Fans of the Duchess were quick to praise her down-to-earth attitude. One wrote: “She is a wonderful mum, who devotes her life to them, her husband, the Monarchy and her patronages. It nice to hear she equally beautiful on the inside and the children too.”

Another said: “Aw!!! You lucky thing how just like HRH Duchess Catherine that is too. No fuss, no drama, no pr photo shots, just her and her children doing normal! It’s lovely.”

A third added: “I love hearing this and had no doubt she was like this…I'm such a fan.”

Over the weekend, the Duchess was also praised for how she supported fellow members of the Royal family at Prince Philip's funeral. The mum-of-three, who pledged to 'work hard' after Wills proposed, left St George's Chapel and consoled Prince Charles as they departed.

The 39-year-old planted a tender kiss on Charles' cheek and proved what a supportive daughter-in-law she is.

Kate was pictured putting her arm around William's dad, 72, and checking how he was following the service.

The brunette beauty wore the Queen's pearl choker to the funeral, which was once borrowed by Princess Diana.

Kate also wore a four-strand pearl and diamond choker to the St George's Chapel service.

The choker was made for Queen Elizabeth with pearls gifted to her by Japan. Her Majesty has worn the stunning piece on a number of occasions over the years.

Notably, it was also worn by Princess Diana in 1982. Kate has also been previously seen wearing the choker, and did so in 2017 when she attended the Queen and Prince Philip's 70th wedding celebrations at Windsor Castle.

As well as providing support for Charles, Kate was also on hand to be there for her husband as he reunited with brother Harry.

All eyes were on the pair as they walked together after the service, and were joined by Kate.

"It's fantastic to see Harry walking between Kate and William," body language expert Derek Heron told OK! exclusively.

"That's a huge acceptance. They are still close. There is still a massive brotherly bond there."

"Kate stepping aside allowing them to walk together has lots of good signs," Derek continued.

The body language expert went on to claim that the siblings seemed to be relaxed as they enjoyed one another' company.

"Kate stepping aside allowing them to walk together has lots of good signs.

"It was very natural the way it happened. Will, Harry and Kate seemed very relaxed as they walked together."

Harry, 36, reportedly contacted William, 38, as well as his father Prince Charles and cousins Eugenie and Beatrice when he arrived in the UK.

It was claimed that he wanted to "park any disputes" ahead of his grandfather's funeral.
