Duchess Kate Debuts New Look: Bangs!

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted driving with husband Prince William.

— -- The Duchess of Cambridge is preparing for a return to the public spotlight after a maternity leave following the birth of her second child -- and it appears she will be doing it with a new look.

Kate had her hair pulled half-way back, with the long bangs swept to each side, and was wearing a dark turtleneck and earrings.

Kate has spent the bulk of the summer with her children and Prince William at their country home in Norfolk since giving birth to Charlotte, the fourth-in-line to the British throne, on May 2.
