Kate Middleton's maternity leave is over!
Four months after giving birth to Princess Charlotte, the 33-year-old Duchess of Cambridge visited the Anna Freud Centre in central London Thursday to learn about its work treating children and young people with mental health issues.
Giving royal admirers a better look at her new bangs, she picked an American designer for her first solo appearance in months, wearing Ralph Lauren's $1,595 "Austin" dress with Stuart Weitzman "Power" pumps. She carried a Mulberry bag.
Prince George, 2, and his sister, 4 months, stayed home in Anmer Hall, Norfolk.
The Duchess greeted Michael Samuel, chairman of the trustees of the Anna Freud Centre, with a warm embrace upon her arrival. "We are absolutely delighted that you are here and very grateful and hope that today you will get a real insight into all aspects of our work," Samuel told Middleton's assembled guests. "Your continued support on this very important issue will be an invaluable ingredient towards making the real and urgent progress which is necessary in this area."
