Recently, the royal couple (Kate Middleton and Prince William) made news with the birth of their child, but that does not mean that they have to stay in Buckingham Palace all the time--they can be out in public and act like the rest of the population.
According to The Herald Sun, the Duchess of Cambridge visited The Old Stables Shop, a Norfolk antiques store, and asked for a discount on the items that she had gathered. Middleton visited the store while she was pregnant with future Prince George.
The store owner, Carolyn Combe, told British magazine Tatler "Such thin legs in her wellies. She was looking at various things and asked for a discount." Carolyn's husband later exclaimed, "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."

So, did the Duchess of Cambridge get her discount? According to The Herald Sun, Carolyn Combe accepted her request for a discount, and later stated, "She's got a big house to do up. But I love her for asking." This a great way to preserve and spend the royal budget wisely.[Image source: Twitter (PrincessKateFTW)]
