There was no rest for the Duchess of Cambridge on her first day back in the public eye.
After she welcomed the president of Singapore with Prince William on Tuesday morning, Kate made her second public appearance at London's Natural History Museum.
The 32-year-old duchess, who is a patron of the museum, attended the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards where she presented prizes to the winners of the adult and under-18s competitions alongside Sir David Attenborough and Sir Michael Dixon.
After two months away from the spotlight, Kate reminded us she still knows a thing or two about elegant red carpet style. She wore a bespoke Jenny Packham gown with a mid-length underskirt, draped bodice and three quarter length sleeves. Suede nude sandals and a matching clutch bag completed her evening look.
Earlier in the day, Kate wore an Alexander McQueen coat dress paired with a Jane Taylor hat to greet Tony Tan Keng Yam, the 74-year-old president of Singapore, at the start of his four-day state visit.
Due to her acute case of morning sickness, she has not been seen in public since a visit to the First World War poppy tribute at the Tower of London with Prince William and Prince Harry in August - a month before her pregnancy was confirmed on 8 September.
The duchess is reported to have said, "I've been looking forward to getting out of the house," in a conversation with the president and his wife on Tuesday.
It's good to have you back, Kate. More glamorous royal style below:
