Days after enchanting the fashion world with her Jubilee-celebrating (recycled) threads, Kate Middleton rocked a far more low-key, blending-with-the-civilians look while strolling around the gardens outside Kensington Palace this week.

And she did so with not one, but two cute companions: her brother James and her puppy Lupo!

Kate reverted to a familiar casual ensemble: Barbour jacket (you can take the British girl out of the country...), skinny jeans and a now practically mandatory hat. However, while she seemed to be mostly left alone as she strolled through the London park, it certainly wasn't owing to any lack of recognition on the public's behalf.

"Catherine #DuchessofCambridge walking Lupo today in Kensington Gardens," Canadian journalist Jocelyn Laidlaw tweeted shortly after spotting the royal rambler, along with a photo of the siblings. "Lovely to see her so low-key. #whatluck"

The picturesque path is clearly a favorite of the duchess, or in any case, mighty convenient (her palace pad, after all, is just steps away). She and her four-legged friend were spotted making the same rounds back in February.
