Shoppers in the busy Georgian market town of Holt spotted the Duchess in the High Street on Thursday afternoon .

Chloe Nelson who co-owns Nelson's Eye Patch in the town spotted the Duchess of Cambridge in the town's High Street just after 1pm.

She said: 'She looked lovely in a tartan cape as she left the Antiques Emporium and headed up the high street, what a great ambassador for shopping in local independent shops.'

She added that it did not look like anyone else was with the Duchess other than a bodyguard but added that she had 'quite a few bags'.

It is not the first time the Duchess has visited the town, last year she visited the Mews Antique Emporium, which sells antique furniture, clothing, books and collectables, with a group of friends. Shoppers in Fakenham also spotted her leaving an antiques store.

Earlier this week the Duchess was greeted by ecstatic schoolchildren as she arrived at the Norfolk Showground on Tuesday to help EACH launch a £10 million appeal to build a new hospice, called The Nook, for seriously ill Norfolk children. Catherine is the charity's Royal Patron.
