The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted stocking up on £5 Nivea moisturiser at Boots
She's fast becoming the reigning queen of British high street style, and now the Duchess of Cambridge has proved herself to be a fan of budget beauty buys too, after she was spotted stocking up on £5 Nivea moisturiser.
The 29-year-old royal was seen browsing the aisles in Boots on the King's Road, where she snapped up Nivea's Visage Pure and Natural Moisturising Day Cream for just £5.10.
Speaking to a Sunday paper, a fellow shopper revealed: 'Kate looked like an ordinary shopper as she went up to the counter to buy her cream. She was friendly and chatty as she paid her £5.10. It was only when I took a second glance that I realised who she was.'
Hours later, the Duchess accompanied Prince William to the ARK Gala charity dinner, where commentators were quick to applaud her glam styling and radiant complexion.
Expect a shopping frenzy at your local Boots - something tells us Middleton mania may just have created another sell-out sensation....
