Kate Middleton is truly the ''people's princess'' and she wants her child to be raised like any normal child- or as close to that as possible.

Kate has been spotted buying some great products which are accessible to every day "commoners" making this princess' baby watch even more of a spectator sport. Bump Club and Beyond has some suggestions if you want to follow in Kate's footsteps with your own baby!
