Is that the future Queen of England in aisle 4? Yup. Kate Middleton a.k.a. the Duchess of Cambridge hit the local supermarket in Anglesey yesterday, the Daily Mail reports.

The newlywed, who recently said she wants to be an "ordinary RAF wife," stocked up on some pantry basics, along with a few special items. As one onlooker told the newspaper, "perhaps she was preparing their first romantic meal as a married couple."

While smiling at her fellow shoppers, she loaded up her Audi A3 with the goods and "skipped" across the parking lot to return her empty cart. The only signs of her new role were the three police bodyguards and a back-up car.

The down-to-earth duchess and her new husband have publicly stated that they want to live normal lives -- for royals anyway. Prince William returned to work this week as a search-and-rescue pilot at RAF [Royal Air Force] Valley in Wales, where the couple rents a farmhouse. But this was the first time Kate has been seen out and about since departing Buckingham Palace with William on the day after their wedding.

The bride, who recently landed the No. 26 spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list, looked casual chic in black skinny jeans by Hudson, a white cashmere v-neck sweater, green ruffled shrug and ballet flats. Her best accessory, though, was the Welsh gold wedding band spotted on her left hand.

Along with a honeymoon scheduled for later this month, the couple have also planned a summer trip to the U.S. Buckingham Palace recently announced that William and Kate will visit California in July, after their tour of Canada. The West Coast stop was reportedly added to their North American itinerary because of America's huge response to the newlyweds.

    why cant people leave the duchess alone. let her live her life the way she want.

    My few pounds:
    I am so glad Kate did not have a breast augmentation and still landed a prince. Hey women stop mutilating yourself. If he is not happy with a normal body he is not worth it. As long as you are healthy and of normal appearance, there is no reason to put yourself at risk and put plastic in you to create an illusion for others. Your man needs to be happy with you and this is a "cure" that is for a non problem. Beauty is in the eyes of teh beholder and it is your soul and character that is loved, not silicone.
    Also, I guess being a virgin is not expected anymore, so if you love your man, and your heart is pure, your love will not be in vain, nor will you be discarded as someone whose milk was gotten without buying the cow. I am for waiting and getting a ring but if the passion is such degree and normal impulses take over, he could still marry you after if it is true love, so do not despair.

    Why would AOL post the lead to this article as "Kate Middleton Snapped" ? It makes it seem as though she lost her temper! I'm tired of all of the misleading headlines from all of these online reports.

  • Dana

    "Snapped" is also a British term for photographed.

  • Linda Beeson

    That is 'Countess' to you, you slag!

  • Andrea

    Good for her going out to do her own shopping! Sadly though we all know this is just the beginning of hell for her with the media.
