'Royal' Kate goes 'commoner' shopper pushing trolley at supermarket

London, May 6 (ANI): Catherine, the new Duchess of Cambridge, has been spotted strolling down aisles of a supermarket on the island of Anglesey doing weekly shop like any other housewife.

In a loose-fitting green poncho and white V-neck sweatshirt worn with skinny jeans and ballet pumps, Kate pushed a trolley among dozens of shoppers at Waitrose on the island.

It is the first time the Duchess has been out and about in public since she and Prince William departed for a weekend break the next day after marrying at Westminster Abbey.

Onlookers said Kate looked very ordinary, and the only clues to her royal status were three police bodyguards, a back-up car and the jewellery on her wedding finger.

Kate is likely to have been preparing a special dinner for her new husband, who has returned from a busy 24-hour shift as a search and rescue pilot.

"It looked like she was stocking up on the basics, but she also bought a few special items, so perhaps she was preparing their first romantic meal as a married couple," the Daily Mail quoted an onlooker as saying.

"She loaded all the shopping into her car on her own, then skipped as she ran the trolley back to the park. She looked very happy and was smiling at people.

"Most people didn't even spot who it was, despite her being probably the most famous person in the world at the moment," the onlooker added. (ANI)

    2015 Dodge Charger goes under the knife

    Over the past decade, Chrysler's rear-wheel-drive sedans have managed to survive a bankruptcy and three different corporate overlords. Thanks to the original stoutness of the Mercedes-assisted chassis, and the periodic updates that keep them from seeming like 21st-century versions of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger combo still draw in fans. Today, Dodge revealed yet another redesign for the 2015 Charger — and for an old car, it's quite the change.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
