It certainly has been a quiet couple of weeks for Kate but that's all set to change with the Paralympics and the royal tour of South-East Asia. William and Kate have been in Anglesey since the Olympics and returned to London today. The couple were seen driving into Clarence House, no doubt in preparation for the coming weeks.
Clarence House, stands beside St James' Palace and provides office accommodation for Their Royal Highnesses in their official engagements.
One lucky passer-by G De Siena walked past Kate just off the Kings Road and shared a photo via Twitter. According to the tweet "people's faces were priceless".

Kate wore a black jersey dress, very similar to an Issa dress she was spotted wearing days before the royal wedding whilst shopping in London. On closer inspection it would appear the sleeves on the Issa dress are significantly different.
It is thought the dress is either the $80 Zara Dress With Pleat On Sleeves.
or the Alexander McQueen Fine-Knit Wool Dress (With thanks to the lovely ladies over at What Kate Wore Facebook and to all of you who took the time to comment here)
Kate appears to be wearing her LK Bennett Greta wedges.
The Duchess carried her Mulberry Cookie bag.
William and Kate will join the Queen tomorrow night for the Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium. Award-winning film director Stephen Daldry heads the team behind the ceremony, which has a cast of over 3,000 volunteers. The ceremony begins at 8 pm BST.
The Palace released some information today regarding events the couple will be attending. All engagements are provisional and I expect many more will be added as the games progress.
- Thursday August 30 - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will cheer on Team GB at Goalball and Track Cycling. Kate will attend the swimming also.
- Sunday September 2 - The Duchess of Cambridge will attend the athletics at Olympic Park.
