Since her maternity leave, Kate Middleton has been putting her post-baby bangs to work. Today, the Duchess of Cambridge paid a secret visit to the women's jail at HMP Send. The royal spent her time at a jail in Woking, Surrey hearing personal stories with female inmates, and looked into how the prison is treating those with drug and alcohol addictions. According to DailyMail UK, this is Kate's first-ever prison visit.

For the hush-hush engagement, Kate wore a light gray tweed dress by a London-based brand called The Fold. The Eaton dress is still available in plenty of sizes, but if you're interested in the £365.00 piece, you should probably hop to it. Needless to say, Kate paired the structured, long-sleeved dress with perfectly coordinating light gray pumps and a slightly darker — but absolutely non-clashing — clutch. Prison fashion, the Kate Middleton way.
