Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are finally returning to their royal duties.

Today, the Prince (40) and Princess of Wales (41) traveled to Birmingham via train for their first public outing since they attended Easter service at St. George’s Chapel.

According to Express, Princess Catherine wore the Petite Long Sleeve Pleated Midi Trench Dress by Karen Millen (normally $394, on sale for $315). There are similar options available at Banana Republic ($120; $90) and Reformation ($298).

The outfit featured a belted waist and a pleated skirt, along with gold buttons on the sleeves. While this color has already sold out, it’s also available in black and camel. But the best part is that it’s currently 20 percent off.

The couple documented their journey on their Instagram Story, where they posted a video from the train. The caption read, “See you very soon Birmingham!”

Prince William and Princess Catherine stopped by The Indian Streatery, an Indian restaurant that’s owned by the Sharma family. The head chef, Meena, introduced the royal couple to her all-female team and demonstrated how to make roti.

The Prince and Princess of Wales shared a photo on their Instagram Story and captioned the post, “Roti making—how do you think we did?”

Prince William also posted a photo of himself answering the telephone at The Indian Streatery, while Princess Catherine laughed in the background. He captioned the post, “Hope we told this customer to come to the right place…!”

This outing marked the couple’s first official appearance since they celebrated Easter. However, the hiatus wasn’t a huge surprise because their three children—Prince George (9), Princess Charlotte (7) and Prince Louis (4)—were on the British equivalent of spring break.

Welcome back, Wales family. Now about that pleated dress…
