Kate Middleton has officially returned from maternity leave and made her first public appearance in two months.

The Duchess of Cambridge took eight weeks off from royal duties after giving birth to her second child, Princess Charlotte in July.

Today, she visited the Anna Freud Centre which treats youths with mental health issues, wearing a Ralph Lauren houndstooth print dress and black heels.

Her new fringe has won over beauty buffs and as expected, her silk dress has nearly sold out.

Kate has a number of engagements over the coming weeks, including the London premiere of Spectre on October 26.

It had been reported that the Duchess was in the early stages of her third pregnancy, but today's appearance has quashed any suggestions there's another royal baby on the way just yet.
