Duchess of Cambridge back to work after birth of Princess Charlotte

The Duchess of Cambridge has attended her first solo public engagement since the birth of Princess Charlotte.

Kate visited a children's centre in London on her first day back at work.

The centre is named after Anna Freud, a pioneer of child psychoanalysis and a daughter of the famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, who was instrumental in its creation.

The Duchess also visited the centre's family school, which opened in September last year, and provides alternative education for youngsters who are seriously at risk of exclusion and are struggling to achieve.
