Kate Middleton shops for honeymoon garb

2011-04-20 15:38
London - Kate Middleton was spotted shopping in a high-street store for her honeymoon wardrobe on Tuesday.

The future queen of Britain visited a Warehouse store in Chelsea, London, where she spent £225 on three summer dresses and a white lace blouse.

She arrived at the middle-range shop in the afternoon with a bodyguard and spent 20 minutes browsing before choosing the outfits, which she bought in a UK size 8.

An assistant told Britain's Daily Mail: "She was really nice and friendly."

Although her future husband Prince William is said to be keeping their honeymoon destination a secret, it is thought Kate has been advised to pack to go somewhere hot, explaining her summery purchases. Royal aides have confirmed that the couple - who will marry in Westminster Abbey next Friday will leave for a romantic two-week break the day after the wedding but would not disclose where they are going.

Fashion gifts

The 29-year-old bride-to-be has been receiving many fashion gifts in the run-up to the big day and delighted two young jewellery designers when she sent them a letter thanking them for a tailor-made necklace they sent her.

Natasha Faith and Semhal Zemikael, who own Las Diosa, were thrilled to receive the letter from Clarence House saying Kate "loves" their gift of a blue topaz pendant.

Natasha told London's Evening Standard: "When we approached Clarence House they said don't send her a gift because it will be sent back, so we contacted the Prince's Trust who said send it at your own discretion. So we decided to.

"A week later we received a letter from Clarence House who said thank you so much for the gift. They said Kate wanted to thank us and that she truly does love it. We were really touched."
