Is Kate Middleton The Thriftiest Royal?

Nothing is more satisfying, from a shopping point of view, than a genuine bargain. It's like beating the system at its own game; a thrill we have to have again and again. And, it looks like we are in good company as it has been revealed that none other than the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton enjoys a good deal, too.
The Telegraph reports that the Duchess of Cambridge likes nothing more than popping to the discount outlet, Bicester Village, to score a bargain. Her favorite place to visit? Why, Reiss of course. A shop assistant at Bicester Village is reported to have said, "You look up and there'll be Kate and her same two friends going through the 60% off rack. You have no idea she's there and security must be outside, but she comes in all the time. And she's totally different to the Prince of Thailand, who I heard shut down a restaurant and brought his own staff when he visited Bicester." Now, that is what we call stealth sale shopping. Get in, hit the racks, and get out again. We also applaud the Duchess for hitting up the 60% rack, leaving the 25% off "discounts" for the amateurs.
