Back in 2013 when she was expecting her first child Prince George, the Princess of Wales was spotted getting a takeaway coffee from Starbucks, which US Weekly revealed was a skinny decaff latte. The royal supposedly even paid with a Starbucks loyalty card, suggesting she was a regular at the popular spot!
