She's made her last official public appearances, but is Kate Middleton done baby shopping? As the countdown to the birth of the royal baby winds down, let's take a look back at where's she's been spotted shopping in London for the little prince (or princess) and what's she's rumored to have purchased.

Bernard Thorp

Just hours after a service at Westminster Abbey (the same place she was married) to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the queen's coronation, the duchess was spotted shopping at this high-end interiors shop in London. It was reported that Kate did not pick out pink or blue, but instead was interested in fabrics in brown and beige. The store would not comment on Kate's visit. Bernard Thorp also has locations in Paris and New York.

Blue Almonds

Kate and her mother Carol were spotted shopping at the high-end Blue Almonds children's boutique and were photographed leaving the store with a white wicker Moses basket. The basket cost a reported $450. The day she was spotted shopping -- April 29 -- was also the royal couple's second wedding anniversary to Prince William. They didn't spend most of the day together, however. So how did they spend their anniversary, besides baby shopping?

Peter Jones

The mum-to-be was reportedly spotted shopping for the all-important buggy (in the U.S. we call it a stroller) at Peter Jones department store in Sloane Square. Kate reportedly decided on the Bugaboo, though this has not been confirmed. The Bugaboo is a popular choice with big-city moms in London, New York City and Los Angeles and is the ride of many a celebrity baby. The Bugaboo Chameleon 3 system retails for about $1,100.

Lots Road

British media reported Kate was spotted purchasing a rug on London's Lots Road, a shopping district filled with home designs and antiques. But it's unclear whether the rug is intended for the baby's nursery or simply to decorate their new apartment in Kensington Palace. Apartment 1A is said to be getting a hefty makeover, including $750,000 in security upgrades. The apartment was formerly the home of the late Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth II's younger sister, and features a private garden along with its 20 rooms, including a nursery.
