If you're a parent to young children, chances are you're rushing around trying to sort out uniform for your kids ahead of the start of the new school year.

And you're in good company, because Kate Middleton is also preparing for her three children, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four, to head back through the school gates.

But from stationery to packed lunches, there's a lot to remember when it comes to back-to-school shopping.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, a source claimed that mum-of-three Kate once made a classic mistake while she was out shopping for new shoes for her children.

In 2018, the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly took a visit to Peter Jones in London but forgot one essential item – a pair of socks.

Instead, the children, who were wearing summer sandals at the time, are thought to have borrowed a pair from the department store so they could try on their new shoes to determine whether they fit properly.
