Britain's Duchess of Cambridge stunned attendees of a local fair by haggling over the price of a pair of antique vases.
The 30-year-old royal - wife of Prince William - recently went to Ludlow's Continuity Fair in Ludlow, central England, and seemed to be in fierce bartering mood.
According to The Daily Beast, Catherine - who is also known as her maiden name of Kate Middleton - managed to get the price for the vases down from Â£180 to Â£160.
Throughout her time there, Catherine blended in with the crowd and impressed everyone with her down-to-earth attitude.
Nick Bayliss, the owner of Continuity Fairs, told the Antique Trade Gazette: 'We had sent out complimentary tickets to Prince William and the duchess for our May fair and again in October, and to my absolute delight in she comes with her party on the Sunday morning and had her hand stamped with the green dragon by my daughter, who didn't recognise her.'
The fair is located close to Anglesey, where RAF helicopter pilot William and Catherine currently live.
