She was highlighting issues surrounding children's mental health – but as usual, all anyone could talk about was her hair.

Sporting a feminine new fringe, the Duchess of Cambridge was all smiles at the Anna Freud Centre in central London. The 33-year-old looked stylish as always in a belted Ralph Lauren shirtdress which she paired with black heels.

The is Kate's first appearance on her own after giving birth to Princess Charlotte in May. She's spent the past four months with her baby daughter and Prince George (2) at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.

The centre treats children and young people with mental health problems, which is a cause close to Kate' heart.

"The Duchess wants to play a part in the open discussion around the emotional and mental wellbeing of children," a royal spokesperson said.

"Building on her work over the last 18 months, she will continue to champion the valuable work that many charities and organisations are carrying out in this field."

The mom-of-two seemed in good spirits on the visit, even joining in on some of the games devised to help the children with discipline and coordination.

"It's wonderful that she has come here because that shows me that she's interested in families and children and the problems that people can have," Anna Noguera, a mom-of-two who first came to the centre for help while living in an over-crowded homeless hospital with her husband and infant son. The Colombia-born 33-year-old now serves as a member of AFC's parents' panel.

"I imagine it's because she's a mum herself, she has compassion for families and kids who are suffering in difficult situations."
