It's back to business after baby for the Duchess of Cambridge.
On Friday, Kate, 31, made a surprise appearance at the Ring of Fire race in Anglesey, Wales.
Looking slim and relaxed, Kate chatted with locals about babies, pregnancy and the race, telling onlookers that her five-week-old son, Prince George, was home napping with his grandmother, Carole Middleton.

Prince George is about to be welcomed to the jungle.
The newborn son of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, both 31, will have an African-themed bedroom, William tells CNN.
"I'll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room," the new dad says on the one-hour special, Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope, airing Sept. 15. "We'll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he's in the bush."

He may be little, but Prince George is raising a royal ruckus.
The baby boy, born on July 22 to Prince William and Princess Kate, is "a little bit of a rascal," as William told CNN. And his parents are feeling the effects.
Initially, the new mom and dad declined outside help. "Everything, including breast-feeding, went so well that they decided not to hire a private maternity nurse," an insider tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story.

Like father, like son – or uncle?
In a preview of his upcoming interview with CNN about baby George, his wife Kate and his current adjustments to fatherhood, Prince William said of his son, "He's a little bit of a rascal, I'll put it that way, so he either reminds me of my brother [Prince Harry] or me when I was younger, I'm not sure."
Overall, said William, "He's doing very well at the moment. He likes his nappy changed."
The prince also said, "Catherine is very well, [and the dog] Lupo is coping ... He's been slobbering around the house a lot, so he's happy."

Barely a month as prince, and little George is already racking up the miles.
The royal baby and mom Kate have joined Prince William at a four-bedroom farmhouse looking out over the sea in Anglesey, in north Wales, which the couple has called home for about three years.
The littlest royal is believed to have been driven the 270 miles from the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, west of London, earlier this week.

Less than two months after the birth of their son Prince George, the Duchess of Cambridge is set to go back to work when she joins Prince William at an official engagement for one of his favorite conservation charities.
"That is the plan at the moment," says a Palace source, confirming the couple's appearance at the glittering Tusk Trust awards dinner Sept. 12.
William, who is patron of the charity, has lent his name to one of the awards, for lifetime achievement.
There is also a possibility that Kate will join William at another engagement on Anglesey before the couple move away from the island in the northwest corner of Wales later in September.

How tough is fatherhood for Prince William?
"I have to say that I thought Search and Rescue duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally demanding, but looking after a 3 week-old baby is up there!" William told the crowd at a farming and country show in Wales on Wednesday – at the same time apologizing for the fact that wife Kate and son Georgie couldn't be with him.
The proud father also said his newborn is "pretty loud" but "extremely good looking." Referring to his son as "lovely," William earlier told some people that the family had had a "few sleepless nights," but the "new addition [is] sleeping much better now."

The birth of Prince George is being marked in many ways, and now jewelry is on the list.
The collection's designer, Claudia Bradby, has worked with the Duchess of Cambridge before and draws her inspiration from the Middleton crest, which features three acorns to represent their three children – Kate, Pippa and James.
"Mighty oaks from little acorns grow – that's the saying and the sentiment behind it," Bradby tells PEOPLE, adding: "Plus, it has some relevance to them as a couple because the inspiration for the design was drawn from her own family crest."

Is the Duchess of Cambridge adding photographer to her list of royal responsibilities?
While the world waits for the official portrait of Prince William and Kate and their newborn son, Prince George, the young couple is weighing another option: releasing a set of snapshots possibly taken by Kate and the Middletons, a palace source tells PEOPLE.
After the initial news release, the images would then be distributed on social media outlets like Twitter and on the couple's website.
"The whole point of these photos is that as many people have access to them who need to and we will find the easiest way of doing that," the source says.

It's back to work for Prince William.
With his paternity leave over, the new father has said goodbye to his 2-week old son, Prince George, and wife Kate, and headed back to North Wales to return to his position as a Royal Air Force search and rescue helicopter pilot.
Kate, 31, and the newborn are currently at the Middletons' home in Bucklebury, about 55 miles west of London. But mother and son are expected to make the 270-mile trip up to North Wales "at some point" in the coming weeks, a royal source tells PEOPLE.
