Adorably Charlotte was carrying a handbag, more typically seen on her mum, whereas Louis was holding hands with dad.

But fans were most excited by the dog, to replace Lupo who died earlier this year.

The pup, given to them by Kate's brother James Middleton, was excitedly bouncing around the duchess' feet.

Writing on Twitter the snapper said: "The #DukeandDuchessofCambridge, #PrinceGeorge, #PrincessCharlotte, #PrinceLouis and the very excited new dog were spotted leaving Kensington Palace today."

The trip comes just weeks after the duchess was spotted with her eldest two in a shop in Chelsea.

Kate, 39, was spotted in her favourite shopping location off the King’s Road, where she was regularly seen when she was dating William.

And she went on: “I wasn’t there but she talked to my team, the kids had a budget that they stuck to and paid for their own things with their own money.

“Just normal well brought up children and a normal parent trying to do the right thing and that’s just lovely!”

Alexa refused to name the store, saying it wasn’t important.

She was accompanied by George and Charlotte, who onlookers said were beautifully behaved.

Alexa, who works in the store the duchess visited, tweeted: “I’ve always been a Kate Middleton fan… today she was in one of my stores on the Kings Road with George and Charlotte, what the team told me about how she was with them and how the kids were with each other makes me like her even more!”

Alexa replied to one follower who questioned her: “The name of the store is irrelevant really.”

The Cambridges divide their time between Kensington Palace and Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which lies 12 miles from King’s Lynn.

The duchess is known to try and keep her children’s lives as normal as possible and has often been seen enjoying normal family trips with them.

She has also been spotted shopping in King’s Lynn herself, going to Sainsbury’s shortly before lockdown last year.
