Kate Middleton Sports Chic Ralph Lauren Dress During Anna Freud Centre Visit

And a pretty stellar Ralph Lauren dress.

Kate Middleton has returned to public duties, and let's just say she has come back with a bang.

The Duchess of Cambridge visited the children's mental health centre in London on Thursday looking happy, relaxed and of course, super stylish.

For her visit to the Anna Freud Centre, Catherine sported a black and white houndstooth Ralph Lauren silk "Austin" dress paired with Stuart Weitzman "Power" pumps and a Mulberry suede clutch. Her brunette locks were worn down with a slight curl at the ends, with her freshly-cut bangs pushed to the side.

The visit marks her first solo outing after the birth of Princess Charlotte on May 2. The 33-year-old is thought to have been staying at her and Prince William's country retreat Anmer Hall during her maternity leave.

"This summer has been their quietest so far in terms of being able to just focus on family life and keep themselves tucked away out of sight," a source told Us Weekly. "It was so nice to be able to go to Anmer after the birth of Charlotte and not be seen for a while."

We're glad to have you back, Kate!
