The Duchess of Cambridge was pictured in London on Monday afternoon, driving her car following the news that the family has returned to London in order for Prince George and Princess Charlotte to start school again.

Kate appeared to be wearing her hair in a sleek and straight style as opposed to her usual loose curls - and also wore one of her floral Amaia Kids face masks.

For the inspiring engagement, Kate chose to wear a pretty floral blouse from Boden, and her Missoma gemstone earrings.

The sweet video also revealed that the Duchess has a previously unseen photo of her children in her office at Sandringham - where she and Prince William conducted many of their work calls during lockdown.

The Cambridges returned to the city as schools reopened on Monday. Prince George and Princess Charlotte have begun classes at their St Thomas' Battersea school and will remain there until the term ends on 26 March. The kids will then be off for Easter until 20 April.
