Kate Middleton Goes Antique Shopping, Prince William Attends Pal's Bachelor Party
Kate Middleton is in full nesting mode! With her July due date fast approaching, the six-months-pregnant Duchess of Cambridge is busy setting up house for herself and Prince William -- and it seems she's looking for something old to go with the something new they'll soon welcome into the world. On Saturday, April 13, the mom-to-be was spotted antique shopping in Fakenham, Norfolk, near Anmer Hall, the country home where she and her royal family will one day reside.
Wearing a purple sweater under a brown-leather vest by the Really Wild Clothing Company, the 31-year-old Duchess browsed the wares at Sue Rivett Antiques, the Fakenham Antique Center, and Mews Antique Emporium. A source told Us Weekly she was looking at vases and snapping pictures of pieces of her phone. "She seems to be very organized in her home decorating," the onlooker said.
Another eyewitness noted that Middleton's baby bump was on full display. "She was showing," the source told Us. "She didn't have a coat on as it wasn't that cold...She looked beautiful."
Indeed, a spokesman for Mews Antique Emporium said Prince William's wife "looked radiant and well" on her brief shopping trip. "She was happy to mingle with other customers," the spokesman told Us, adding that "no purchases were made by the Duchess, although some were made by her friends."
Meanwhile, in another part of the U.K., Middleton's husband and his brother, Prince Harry, were spotted at a friend's bachelor party at the The Feathers Inn pub in the village of Hedley on the Hill, Stocksfield, Northumberland. "It was civilized, but they were all drinking a lot after eating dinner there," a local told Us of the fete. "William seemed quite rosy-cheeked."
