The Duchess of Cambridge has left Ireland safe in the knowledge that her first visit here was a resounding success. But one burning question remains: where were the Irish designers?

A royal tour wardrobe is planned months in advance, and Kate's long-time stylist, Natasha Archer, began the process of researching appropriate attire long before Kensington Palace announced that the Cambridges would be visiting our shores.

On the first day, as she stepped onto the tarmac at Dublin Airport, Kate's green-on-green ensemble was linked to the uniform of the commercial Aer Lingus flight on which she and Prince William travelled.
