The Duchess Of Cambridge Looks REALLY Happy To Be Back To Work

On Thursday she made her first public solo appearance since giving birth to Princess Charlotte.

Duchess Kate has officially made her return to work, and the only person happier about it than her fans is, well, herself. 

Clad in a houndstooth Ralph Lauren dress (which as of 9 a.m. ET is still not sold out!) and that now-famous new fringe, on Thursday the duchess made her first solo public appearance since giving birth to Princess Charlotte. She visited the Anna Freud Center, which sponsors a family school and works with children and families experiencing mental health issues, a topic a close to the duchess' heart.

 She spent time with children enrolled in the school, saw plans for an upcoming community center and even had some hands-on experience at the school's interactive learning stations. 

 

Perhaps that's why she's so happy.
