Royal Baby No. 3?
Are Kate and Will already thinking about a sibling for George and Charlotte?

So many royal hair puns, so little time…

Kate Middleton is officially back at work, making her first royal engagement on Thursday (Sept. 17) since giving birth to wee baby Charlotte four months ago.

The Duchess of Cambridge made quite the debut with a visit to the Anna Freud Centre in London, showing off new bangs.

Kate, 33, did not disappoint in the fashion department, choosing a black-and-white belted Ralph Lauren silk dress (~$1600 USD), matching black clutch by Mulberry and black court pumps by Stuart Weitzman.

The Duchess’ visit is part of her mission to learn more about how the Centre is helping change mental health care for young people.

According to a royal spokesperson (via Daily Mail):

“The Duchess wants to play a part in the open discussion around the emotional and mental wellbeing of children. Building on her work over the last 18 months, she will continue to champion the valuable work that many charities and organizations are carrying out in this field.”

Here she is testing out the cardio wall with a new friend:

Welcome back, Duchess.
