Duchess Kate shows off new bangs during solo engagement

Duchess Kate is back to work, and she's showing off a new look while she's at it -- bangs.

The 33-year-old British royal made her first solo appearance since the christening of daughter Princess Charlotte in early July. The Duchess visited the Anna Freud Centre in north London on Thursday to see how the organization is working to lead a change in mental health care for children and young people.

According to the royal press office, "The visit reflects The Duchess's interest in child mental health issues and the importance of early intervention and working with the whole family to provide children with in-school mental health services."

While visiting the research and training charity, Kate donned a Ralph Lauren dress. The houndstooth-patterned silk shirt dress is available online for $1,595.
