Sure, the London Sole flats the Duchess of Cambridge wore to the grocery store last week were cute, but her shawl was even cuter! And luckily, we’ve found the designer. While grabbing a few necessities at her local Waitrose supermarket in Anglesey, Wales, on Wednesday, the newlywed wore a green shawl by American knitwear brand Minnie Rose. To get the look, a cashmere ruffle duster from the designer is available in the U.S. at Saks Fifth Avenue for $280; a style similar to Kate’s is for sale for $159 on Amazon.com. Across the pond in the U.K., the cozy shawl is available at select Donna Ida stores for £270. According to the Minnie Rose website, the brand has a lot of celebrity fans, including Britney Spears, Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz and Bethenny Frankel. Sounds like Kate is in stylish company! —Reporting by Monique Jessen

I contacted Minnie Rose regarding the green shawl. They said they do not have it and are doubtful it is their shawl. Sure wish we could find out once and for all who made the shawl. It is to die for!

shopthegirlsroom.com has the shawl in stock. They don’t have any green, but they had other colors. I found it through the Minnie Rose site as an online shopping option.
