Kate was led by the hand by Rebekah to a display of handbags and jewellery. Rebekah showed her a silver handbag to which Kate replied : "We better put a reserved sticker on that."
Afterwards Kate bought a Fireman Sam book for Prince George and a Beatrix Potter Tom Kitten figure for Princess Charlotte.
