Back in London and feeling good!

Kate Middleton made her first official appearance in London since topless photos of her were published last month.

After completing their royal tour of Southeast Asia in late September, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 30, were all smiles while visiting the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple in London, England on Oct. 8.

A source tells Us Weekly that Middleton is still upset over the photo scandal, but is "determined to get on with things and forget about." Middleton did share a few laughs with Prince William while signing the visitor's book. 

Middleton looked ready for fall in a short burgundy skirt and matching jacket by designer Paule Ka with black tights and heels. Her husband looked handsome in a suit and coordinating burgundy tie.

The royal couple launched a new award scheme in their name to help build on former scholarship funds set up in the memory of the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and Diana, Princess of Wales. An onlooker tells Us, "The Duchess seemed keen to take in as much as possible about the legal profession as she chatted to scholarship recipients at Middle Temple."
