Maternity leave is over! Before Kate Middleton, now formally known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to her second child, Princess Charlotte, last spring, it was said that she planned to take the summer off to focus on her family. The Duchess remained true to her word: today was her first formal engagement (excluding an America’s World Cup visit with Prince William). She debuted a new hairstyle and even wore a new Ralph Lauren dress.
Princess Kate, as she is sometimes called, visited the Anna Freud Centre in north London. Children’s mental health is one of the causes she champions, so it was a fitting first engagement. Here are some Instagram shots of her arrival and visit:

The Duchess wore a $1595 Ralph Lauren dress that’s probably already sold out- LOL. And she changed up her hair a bit: take a look at those bangs! I have to say, Kate looks as chic as always. I’m loving the dress and the new bangs. It’s a change but not a big change. You know I’ve gotta ask (note there are two polls- double the fun!)…
