After a few weeks without seeing the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has stepped out for the Queen's annual Summer Garden Party.

Dressed in a bespoke (aka custom made, just for her!) £1,285 Marella coat by Emilia Wickstead, she was the bell of the ball -- or, well... garden. Mingling with the 8,000 invitees -- among which were many Olympians and Paralympians from the London 2012 games -- she wore her favorite LK Bennett nude pumps, a Jane Corbett hat and pearl earrings.

The 7-month pregnant Duchess seemed to be in great spirits, smiling with her father-in-law, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. This is the first official engagement for the Duchess in a few weeks, we're hoping most of which were spent relaxing and apparently taking cooking classes from her new housekeeper.
