Has she? London fashion rocks, and has for a long time. She may have attracted the attention of people from far off lands, but I doubt if the bulk of those people could afford the couture she increasingly wears.

One of the gifts Prince William took back home with him after his visit to Malta last Sunday was for his wife Kate - and the gift was presented to him by the Prime Minister's wife, Michelle Muscat.

The gift was a sparkling midnight minaudiere handbag by Sunita Mukhi, a Maltese designer who lives in London. The bag was decorated with countless tiny Swarovski crystals and a white Maltese cross.

Travel interest to Malta increased by 71 per cent during Prince William's visit to the island.

Hotel comparison website trivago.co.uk said hotel searches for Malta had increased by up to 71 per cent.

Hotel searches made on Saturday and Sunday, while the prince was here, were compared to searches made the previous weekend. Searches were for a hotel stay during the following two months. The data was based on UK platform visits from 75 million global monthly users.

Denise Bartlett, UK Public Relations, told Travel Daily News: “Although William joked that the crowds were hoping for his wife instead, these figures show that his visit clearly had an impact among UK travellers. Malta is an exciting and varied destination of historic towns, beautiful beaches and a Mediterranean climate. It’s great to see the island receive the recognition it deserves.”

Yes, but they wear the same suits over and over again. They should change them up a bit. Perhaps wear different colors sometimes.

I suspect William has more than one blue suit. Each of us make our own choices, if he likes blue, why can he not continue to wear it?

I'm not saying not to wear blue suits but I think he could change things up a bit. I like his style though. Maybe wear a few ascot ties.

I think both Will and Kate are not overly passionate about fashion and clothing. If left to their own devices and living the life of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Schmoe, these two would never really be called clothes horses. Charles sticks to the tried and true and what he likes and its obviously rubbed off on William.

In a way, I'm glad these two aren't really about fashion and design, they're more concerned about the issue at hand.

Or more kinds of shirts (than blue and white) and more than 5 ties in rotation. He could find up and coming UK or Commonwealth designers for these. Or alternately, he could prop up a bespoke house that's in need of some attention and new customers. He does not have to go wild - just make some effort that would benefit the economy. It would be a great gesture.
