Carole Middleton was spotted during a Christmas shopping trip last week and she paid a visit to one of daughter Kate's favorite jewelry stores.
- Carole Middleton's lavish Christmas shopping trip in London last week featured a stop at a seriously pricey jewelry store that her daughter, the Duchess of Cambridge, is known to love.
- It's likely Carole was on the hunt for a Christmas present for Catherine, who has worn various pieces from the esteemed Chelsea jeweler over the years.
- This royal news (opens in new tab) comes after the Queen's Buckingham Palace furniture came under scrutiny (opens in new tab) from fans.
Mother to the future Queen, Carole, was seen perusing the incredible array of jewelry at London’s Cassandra Goad in London's Chelsea, not far from Prince William and Kate Middleton's Kensington Palace (opens in new tab) home.
The luxury boutique offers pieces fit for royalty, with price tags of up to £33,000.
According to the Mail Online, Carole was busy inspecting the designer's necklaces and is predicted to have been on the hunt for a special gift to give to Kate this Christmas or for her 40th birthday in January.
Kate famously wore a beautiful pair of Cassandra Goad pearl earrings for her youngest son Prince Louis' christening back in 2018, with the elegant accessory, priced at £4,360, perfectly complimenting her all-white outfit.
With Kate expected to spend Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham (opens in new tab) this year—and Her Majesty vowing not to cancel her plans (opens in new tab) despite the sharp rise in Omicron cases—a necklace, pair of earrings or a ring from a jewelers that holds a special place in her heart would be the perfect present, considering Carole may not be able to see her daughter as she fulfils her royal duties on December 25th.
Despite the fact the Cambridge family have royal family dedications to stick to on Christmas Day itself, that doesn't stop doting grandma Carole from having some festive fun with her grandkids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Taking to the Instagram account for her party supplies company, Party Pieces, Carole shared that she plays a cheeky prank on the Cambridge kids to keep them laughing in the lead up to Christmas.
