Prepare for another wave of the 'Kate effect' as the Duchess goes outlet shopping

Even the Duchess of Cambridge isn't exempt at looking for a bargain.
Kate Middleton was spotted stocking up on a number of designer goodies at an outlet shopping centre in Oxfordshire, believed to be stocking up on a number of looks ahead of her first royal solo trip.
The mother of Prince George will be travelling to Malta next month for a two-day trip, requiring a number of stylish ensembles to ensure she maintains her style icon status.
According to People magazine, the future Queen of England was seen perusing the heavily marked down sale prices of Temperley, Jimmy Choo and Reiss, with mark down rates up to 80%.
She and husband Prince William have taken most of the month of August off for a break as they settle into their new Norfolk mansion, after several months of expensive renovations.
Anmer Hall is in Norfolk, which sits on the east coast of England. It's thought that William and Catherine will stay there for two years.
"Kate and William are country folk at heart. While their London home will be their base in terms of royal duties, Norfolk is where they want to bring up their family," a royal insider revealed to British magazine Grazia.
It was recently revealed that 32-year-old William has taken a job as helicopter pilot with East Anglian Air Ambulance, which commences in spring 2015 and is based near the sprawling mansion.
