October is officially full of more treats than tricks, because Kate Middleton is back to the royal visit circuit.

The Duchess of Cambridge returned after taking leave with baby Prince Louis following his birth in April, and we've got to say, we missed her more than is probably healthy. The royal mom of three stepped out at the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden at Paddington Recreation Ground, and she looked a bit different than the last time we saw her.

First of all, she was really rocking a casual look. She swapped her heels and dresses out for an olive jacket, brown skinny jeans, and tassel boots that we've seen her wear once or twice before.

Her outerwear looks a bit like the olive coat her sister-in-law Meghan Markle wore earlier this year.

Middleton also surprised fans by changing up her hair, though the difference is minimal. If you look closely, you'll see her hair is slightly shorter, and more layered than the last time we saw her.

What a way to mark a royal return!
