KATE Middleton is back in business after taking six months off for maternity leave.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 36, looked stylish as she stepped out for her first public engagement following the birth of her third child, Prince Louis.
Today the royal is visiting the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden in Surrey, which lets inner city kids engage and learn about the natural world.
Instead of the usual dress and heels we are using to seeing her in, Kate opted for a green jacket and brown trousers, and looked completely unfazed as she stepped back into royal duties.
The duchess finished off the look with long tassel boots from Penelope Chilvers, which cost £475.
She wore her trademark brunette hair down and wavy hair down for the occasion and smiled as she greeted staff from the school.
The mum-of-three last carried out an official engagement on March 22 when she met with schoolchildren as part of a Commonweath event.
Then, Kate appeared to enjoying herself during her last day of official engagements, joining Prince William at the Olympic Park’s Copper Box arena in Stratford, east London, for an event staged by SportsAid, a national charity helping the next generation of Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth champions.

Prince Louis arrived at hospital in London nearly exactly a month later on April 23, 2018.
Although Kate has been seen in public since – at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, at the tennis and for Louis’ Christening – these were not official engagements.
But today she is visiting the Paddington Recreation Ground school to see first-hand the positive impact that the Forest School has on children’s emotional and physical wellbeing.
And it’s unlikely to be the last we will see of the Duchess in the coming weeks.

It’s believed she will join Prince William at an event to mark Mental Health Day in early October.
The couple have long advocated the importance of talking about mental health.
And October 12 Kate will join guests at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle.
