Princess Diana was reportedly so in touch with normality and reality when she was still alive.

The late royal’s former protection officer, Ken Wharfe, recently opened up about the Princess of Wales’ shopping habits. In the Channel 5 documentary “By Royal Appointment: Shops Serving the Queen,” it was revealed that Princess Diana oftentimes went to Mark & Spencer to buy two of her favorite foods.

“Shopping with Diana was a unique experience. Occasionally she would say, ‘Ken, I need to go down to Marks and Spencer… To the one in Kensington High Street, to the food hall,’” Wharfe said.

The former protection officer was photographed walking out of the Marks & Spencer branch behind Princess Diana. He said that majority of the buyers were surprised to see the mom of two shopping there.

“It was bizarre, to see the princess walking down the aisles picking up from the freezer, a bag of McCain chips, or burgers off the shelf. I used to think, why do you need to do this, because there must be stacks of it back at Kensington Palace… But it was this thing about Diana, being in touch with normality and reality,” Wharfe said.

Several years after she passed away, Princess Diana’s daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton, seemingly followed in her footsteps. Even though the two royals never really met each other, the Duchess of Cambridge is known for popping at local shops on Kensington High Street.

The mom of three is a huge fan of the children’s clothes store called Trotters, which is located just a few minutes away from Kensington Palace. Middleton dressed Prince Louis in a full Trotters attire for his first birthday portraits that were released last week. Middleton has also dressed Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the same brand.

But Prince William’s wife is also a huge fan of other high-end brands such as The Range. During last year’s Christmas season, she was photographed shopping at a branch in Norfolk.
