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.
Her Alessandra Rich silk midi dress was worn with photography in mind, ensuring she stood out against the backdrop of her engagements that day, including the Áras, Government Buildings and the Garden of Remembrance.
Her coat by Catherine Walker, senior British royals' preferred designer, reflected her movement through the hierarchy of the family.
Kate and her team know better than anyone that royal watchers want a 'princess moment' and her day-one accessories did just that.
Her Jane Taylor headband offered a youthful alternative to stuffy fascinators, reserved for the most formal of occasions, and her earrings, a pair of daisy-shaped diamonds costing nearly €18,000, were an extreme version of the high-low dressing with which she is synonymous.
Later that evening, it was back to reality in a pair of gold drop earrings by H&M (for less than a tenner), adding some metallic sparkle to her dress by The Vampire's Wife, an impossibly hip brand owned by Susie Cave.
Could it have been a subtle nod to 'Dracula' author Bram Stoker? Or an homage to the brand's devoted Irish followers, including Caitriona Balfe and Amy Huberman?
For the visit to Jigsaw, Kate reached a decade back into her closet for a cream Reiss coat, which she last wore in 2010 before her engagement to Prince William; a subtle acknowledgement that five-figure earrings and bespoke coats have no place in meetings at mental health charities.
When it came to Teagasc in Co Meath, and the Howth Cliff Walk, she debuted a new wax jacket by Dubarry (her second time wearing the Galway-based brand), pairing it with her Penelope Chilvers brown boots, which she has been wearing since 2008.
Her silver shamrock earrings were lapped up by third-generation Irish around the world but cringed upon at home.
For Wednesday evening's reception at the Museum of Literature of Ireland, she continued her commitment to sustainable fashion in vintage Oscar de la Renta; dampening the fashion world's collective hopes that she would take the evening to showcase an Irish designer like Louise Kennedy or Helen Cody.
Fiona Heaney, who runs contemporary womenswear label Fee G, said it was a missed opportunity to showcase some of Ireland's creatives in design across fashion, jewellery and headwear.
"While I appreciate her nod to Ireland with green essence, she could have worn an Irish fashion designer or jewellery designer. It could have been very easy to accessorise," she told the Irish Independent.
"With the nod to Ireland in terms of the green and the shamrock, it would have been more modern to wear an Irish designer.
"On the first day, she wore a gorgeous hairband, but there are super milliners in Ireland who do subtle hairpieces as well.
"She has great style, wears clothes very well and is a beautiful lady, and I would hope on her next visit that she wears Fee G!
"The world is watching her, and it would have been such a nice opportunity to fly the flag for Ireland."
As for their final day of activities in Galway, Kate's V-neck midi dress by Savannah was a safe option before a quick change into a cable knit jumper by Really Wild, worn in favour of an Aran sweater.
The Duke of Cambridge has said Ireland and England should not feel "bound" by its complex history as he vowed that the British royal family is committed to strengthening the bond between the two countries after Brexit.
