Because Apt 1a is chock full of work from the Royal Collection, the Duchess of Cambridge is aiming to make her country home look a bit more “lived-in.”

While still pregnant with Prince George, Catherine popped into the Old Stables shop in Norfolk (near Anmer Hall, the home gifted to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen on her Sandringham estate).

Kate came in when quite pregnant,” shop owner Caroline Combe told Tatler.  “Such thin legs in her wellies. She was looking at various things and asked for a discount.

”Of course, she’s got a big house to do up. But I love her for asking.”

Meanwhile, Prince William waited in the car, because he not an antiquing kind of guy.

“If I may say so, William looked like every man who’s forced to go shopping with his wife, which is bored bloody stiff and didn’t get out of the car,” Combe’s husband, Roger said.
