Kate Middleton surprises Christmas shoppers at discount store

William and Harry, along with their wives Kate and Meghan, met with members of the public after the church service.

Earlier in the day the Queen and other members of the royal family braved the December weather to attend a Sunday service at the Sandringham Estate.

And while some slammed the Royal for being "cheap" and shopping at a discount store, former press secretary to The Queen, Dickie Arbiter hit back on Twitter, saying: "The Duchess of Cambridge can shop anywhere she damned well pleases".

Camilla missed an appearance at the Olympia Horse Show last week due to a heavy cold and is believed to be still recovering from the bug.

"It seemed like a lovely family outing for them the day before Christmas Eve".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke and Duchess of Sussex led the way with the Prince of Wales.

It comes ahead of the Christmas Day service at Sandringham tomorrow, which is expected to see thousands descend on the estate to catch a glimpse of the Royal family.

While the announcement further stirred rumors of a potential rift existing among the royals because of Meghan, the palace insisted the move is for a completely different reason.

"She said, 'We are excited".

Queen Elizabeth's annual Christmas address touched on her growing family and the importance of respect.

Meghan Markle may now be gearing up for Christmas festivities with the royal family, but 20 years ago she was celebrating the holidays a bit differently.

She and Prince Harry Wednesday in May and are expecting their first child this spring.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, held her husband's hand as she chatted with sister-in-law Kate amid rumors the duchesses are at odds.
