Bride-to-be not too posh for high street


KATE Middleton was said to have been busy out and about shopping for her honeymoon wardrobe yesterday.

As anticipation of her wedding, which takes place on Friday, April 29, reaches fever pitch among royal watchers -- retailers and merchandisers are cashing in.

Surprisingly, Ms Middleton took to the high street and splashed out on a few summer items from Warehouse on King's Road in London. She bought a blouse and three dresses, which cost £225 (€254) in total.

Meanwhile, while some may think she is the luckiest woman in the world, 86pc of women do not envy Kate, a YouGov and MyDaily.co.uk poll has revealed.

Of those, 44pc gave the reason as the fact she will not be able to live a normal life, while 18pc cited public scrutiny and 10pc gave media attention as a reason.

Yesterday also saw lingerie giant Victoria's Secret host its 'Sexy Little Bride' launch in New York.
