NEW YORK — Designer Pat Kerr last week displayed her sampling of some serious royal memorabilia.

Here to show off her bridal collection, the designer, who divides her time between London and Memphis, set up what amounted to a mini-museum in her Crosby Street Hotel suite. Images of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Princess Alexandra and other royals were displayed throughout the space. A candid colorful photo of Prince William that Kerr shot a few years ago after a polo match in Sandhurst was featured prominently near his and his bride to be’s “CW” monogram. On another wall, a photocopy of a handwritten thank-you note George V penned as a 10-year-old to Lucy Kerr (who is no relation and who years later would serve as maid of honor at his wedding) was on view. He wrote to thank her for the ink she gave him that allowed him to write the letter. (The original letter was left at home for safekeeping.)
