William and Kate have been back home for a few days now, it seems a good time to do a post offering some very limited observations about the visit.

A number of very good perspective pieces have been written about the trip. Perhaps my favorite is the one by Gordon Rayner of The Daily Telegraph: Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit New York: what we’ve learned. I especially liked the item Mr. Rayner put at the top of his list.

1. The Duchess of Cambridge isn’t afraid of the fashion police

The Duchess was under pressure to look her very best when she and the Duke attended a fundraising dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in aid of St Andrews University’s 600th anniversary appeal, but she very much went her own way.

Guests who had paid thousands of dollars each for tickets had eagerly anticipated what the Duchess might be wearing, and by wearing a Jenny Packham dress that she had worn twice before the Duchess showed that she is not prepared to spend big just to impress paying guests.

This syncs with my thoughts about Kate’s dress selection for the event at the Met.
