As she spent the afternoon walking around a park, Kate dressed for the occasion, teaming a pair of brown Zara skinny jeans with sturdy Penelope Chilvers brown boots.

She finished her look with an olive green jumper worn over a patterned blouse and an olive rain coat from Fjallraven.

Fans were thrilled to see Kate back on official duty again!

Another said: “Nice to see Duchess Catherine back on duties. She’s so charming!”

A third added: “So glad she’s back we’ve missed her.”

The Sayers Croft Trust is a charity that aims to involve the local community, especially children, in the enjoyment and care of the environment.

This marked Kate’s first public engagement since March, when the-then eight months pregnant duchess joined husband Prince William at the Commonwealth Big Lunch.

Kate gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, on April 23.

Although she hasn’t attended a public engagement in her royal capacity until now, she has been at other events since Louis’ birth, including the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – now The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – in May.

There was also Louis’ christening at St. James’ Palace in July.

She also joined other senior members of the royal family on the Buckingham Palace balcony at Trooping the Colour in June to mark the Queen’s official birthday.

Kate is expected to be among the guests at Princess Eugenie’s wedding next week, too.

Eugenie will marry fiancé Jack Brooksbank at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on October 12. It’s the same venue where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex married.

It was described as a “private working trip” that included a small number of official engagements on behalf of Her Majesty’s Government.
