The Duchess of Cambridge was a surprise visitor to a high street shop on Saturday (December 22).

Kate appeared at discount store The Range, which is about 15 minutes from nearby Sandringham, and she was joined by Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

She also mingled with shoppers while buying children's books and art materials at the front tills.

The photos - which were published in The Sun – show her smiling as she while wearing a casual outdoor fleece jacket.

One shopper said: "I recognised little Prince George holding Kate’s hand and ­Charlotte with a red bow in her hair.

"Their protection officers were keeping a discreet distance so they looked like any other family out grabbing last-minute Christmas bargains.

"When Kate got to the checkouts I plucked up courage to ask if she’d do a selfie with me and my kids. She very politely declined. She was so nice, explaining she was just doing a bit of Christmas shopping."

The Royal Family will be celebrating Christmas for the first time with the Duke and Duchess' third child Prince Louis this year.
