Duchess ‘radiant’ while antique shopping

Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Middleton

Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Middleton “looked radiant and well” while shopping for antiques at a small store in England’s countryside over the weekend.

She and her husband Prince William married in April 2011 and are expecting their first child together this summer.

Although the beginning of Catherine’s pregnancy was rough due to a severe strain of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum, she is now thriving.

The Duchess was spotted shopping at small country antique shops in England’s Norfolk county last Saturday.

Us Weekly reports the royal perused wares at Sue Rivett Antiques, the Fakenham Antique Center, and Mews Antique Emporium.

She snapped pictures on her mobile and appeared to be cataloguing her finds.

"She seems to be very organised in her home decorating," an onlooker observed.

Another eyewitness was taken aback by Catherine’s striking beauty.

Apparently her baby bump was very noticeable.

"She was showing," another source revealed. "She didn't have a coat on as it wasn't that cold... She looked beautiful."

A spokesperson from Mews Antique Emporium was also charmed by the Duchess.

According to the employee Catherine was extremely polite and wonderful.

"[She] looked radiant and well,” the spokesman said.

“She was happy to mingle with other customers. No purchases were made by the Duchess, although some were made by her friends."

The Duke and Duchess’ baby is due to arrive in July.
