We may not yet know the name of the newborn Prince of Cambridge, but we do know the name of the designer his mother wore home from the hospital -- Jenny Packham.

According to an email we received moments ago, the Duchess of Cambridge left St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Tuesday wearing a bespoke cornflower blue crêpe de chine dress by the British designer.

The Times’ fashion critic Booth Moore notes that the wardrobe choice has some signficance. “She’s wearing a polka dot dress,” Moore pointed out, “just like Diana did when she left the hospital.”


A touching tribute if ever there was one.
