Duchess Kate (opens in new tab) and her three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis (opens in new tab)—have just been spotted in a branch of Sainsbury's supermarket in the United Kingdom, near to the Sandringham Estate and Anmer Hall.

Fans will remember that on Christmas Day 2019, Karen and Rachel Anvil presented Princess Charlotte with an extra special doll (opens in new tab) as a festive gift. And this weekend, Karen took to Twitter to reveal that the person who handmade the doll for Charlotte was lucky enough to spot the Cambridges doing some shopping.

Karen Anvil tweeted, "The lady who made the doll for #PrincessCharlotte at Xmas was in #Sainsbury’s today and was stood next to #DuchessofCambridge and the 3 children! She phoned me and I swear I thought she was gonna have a heart attack she was that excited!"

Meanwhile, the doll creator herself, who goes by Kate or Katie, wrote, "I can assure you it was #TheDuchessofCambridge, I spoke with her security. They asked me not to take photos. I almost died. And I also told the security that It was me who made the doll. I understand your skepticism but I promise you it happened. Xx."
