It definitely looks like her to me ?
Plus, she wore both the coat and those ankle boots before I think


Oh really? You may be right - I didnít think they looked like her style, but we donít see much of her off duty these days.  Agree about the coat!

I could be wrong but I think she wore them at an event in October 2017

I think its her. The coat and every are definitely one's in Kate possession and it looks like her to me.

We always get these kind of pics of Kate right before she gives birth. Literally, if you go back to her past two pregnancies, you will see "candid" pics of her doing "normal" things (with Charlotte it was her a George playing at a park, clear as day and super close) despite the fact that candids have become increasingly more rare for the Cambs.

I don't know if its a coincidence or palace PR/or maybe she simply tells the RPOs to stand down and can't be bothered to care if people snap her while this late in pregnancy. Don't really care/doesn't matter in either direction.

Someone also took candid shots Sunday of the Cambridges arriving to Windsor before the service with the Queen. Whole family including Lupo.

Does anyone know where I can see the candids of their family with Lupo? I haven't been able to find them...

Well, in the last pic (where she's kinda grimacing at the RPO), it does absolutely not look like her, that is right.

I don't think it's her either. I don't think she's tall enough. Kate is almost 5'10" and this woman looks more like 5'6" if she were to stand next to her security person.  Also when was the last time we saw her shopping?  I wonder if it's one of those Kate imitators?

The pic of her at the car is taken at an angle w/the man closer toward the camera and with Kate leaning down so that is why it looks weird height wise.

The man is clearly an RPO since he is carrying what looks like a gun holster which regular folks do not carry in the UK.

And it looks like she is wearing these pants and boots: https://ca.hellomagazine..../000/506/552/body_3_5.jpg

Yes, those pants and boots with this coat from 2013

Lupo sighting! I actually thought Lupo was living with Pippa until I remembered she got her dog from the same breeder as the Cambridges. Beautiful dogs.
Where did you see candid photos of the Cambridges with Lupo on Easter Sunday at Windsor?

Lupo is soooo cute! Wish we saw more of him, but it seems Will and Kate absolutely dote on him. Lots of pics of them carrying him and loving him which how could you not!

Well if this is her, then her RPO seems quite relaxed. I don't so much mind that he didn't chew people out for taking a pix of her, but the way he stands at the car is not particularly alert. I mean potential harm is not likely to jump out of the cart, yet he doesn't appear to watch the different approaches. Seems either he is not really doing a good job, or rather the potential danger to the members of the royal house are a lot less imminent than they would like us to believe.

I love shopping in Waitrose. It’s nice to see her shopping herself and loading the car herself, instead of having staff do it. There are lots of royals I think would do that. Smiley

She has been photographed in the past with shoop assistants doing that. There were photos from when they lived in Wales and one incident was pre-wedding so she received a bit of flak at the time.

At least sheís involved herself. I doubt any of the Danish royals ever do the food shop alone, except for Marie.

I don't remember this - she had a shop assistant help her load the bags in her car? That's common here in the States. Is it not in the UK?

It doesn't happen here at all, well not in a supermarket when you are buying your food shopping. I remember the Wales pic, was the guy actually helping her with the shopping or just happened to be in the car park when she walked past, I don't remember seeing pics of him loading the car but I could be wrong.

Our regions biggest grocer has this thing called ďhelping handsĒ which is exactly this. Itís not just popular amongst elderly but with women in general who may be shopping alone or with small children as it provides you with a sense of comfort while in a vulnerable position in parking lots. Which unfortunately can be a problem area in the states. Obviously Kate wouldnít have to face those fears, but itís why I never really thought about this moment too much.

^^^ Sounds like an excellent idea.  I am not aware of anything like that at any of our major supermarkets.  The bags are packed into sizes and weights that customers can carry themselves.  You only get that sort of helper service at the smaller, family-owned shops.  I suppose it's possible that you might be able to get assistance if you ask for it though.  The other day I was at a place where they had cartons of a mineral water my husband likes on sale.  I only bought a few bottles because I couldn't lift a carton into the trolley.  Maybe people who wanted whole cartons asked and got help.

Every grocery store I've been to asks if I'd like help to my car, and they also refuse tips (I've required such help recently after undergoing a shoulder surgery).

But usually I just order my groceries online, pick a time window, pull into a numbered parking spot at that time, and they wheel out and load up my car, and I drive off. It costs $5 and it's the best $5 I've ever spent. I have a large family so this truly saves me 2 hours of painful pushing a shopping cart every week. win!

I'm gathering other countries don't do that kind of service heh. I read recently that you have to put in a deposit for a shopping cart in some stores in lots of countries. I'm sure there's some future scenario in which that would conceivably happen in the US, but I'd personally stagger around the store juggling food before I messed with a cart deposit.

Well, the cart deposit in Germany is a 1 EUR or 50 Cent coin, or every piece of metal or plastic that matches the size of those. So no big deal, but people do now at least bother to bring back the cart in line. Smaller baskets are free.
Supermarkets here have neither a packing service at the cashier, nor do they have helping hands. I recall that Walmart or Toom tried to establish the packing service years ago, but this didn't suceed: most women liked to pack their sacs themselves, claiming the packers "would do it a stupid way" ...

Hey, we are use to fuel our cars ourselves for decades (I recently read that there's only like 2 States in the US where this is usual, all others, including the ones I've been to, have fuel service; there was a third one where they wanted to abandon the service and it there was a public outrage ...?).

What we have is the online order service you describe - order online and fetch everything packed later. This seems to be a good idea, but I have not yet tried it. The extra cost for this is only 2 EUR. Or you pay - depending on the value - between 0 and max 5,90 EUR and they deliver your order to your front door.

There was a big silly hoopla over oregon state where it's illegal for folks to fuel their cars talking about making it legal, you have it backwards though. Only two states you can't fuel your own. For the other 96% of america we're totally baffled why that's a task for someone else and do it ourselves Tongue I've been driving for decades and I've never had anyone pump my gas for me.

AH though bagging of groceries. I'd never done it before I went to a bag it yourself market nearby and wow I was like..wait I what? ROFL boy was I slow! I'm sure if it was a normal thing it wouldn't have been so stressful though Tongue I didn't realize that was not done in Germany!

I won't say never, but I can't imagine a scenario where I'd put even a penny into pushing a cart around a store to buy their goods. I'd turn around and walk out first. It's just a complete cultural wall for me on that one!
