If you read my first comment, you'll see that I made a distinction between the actual history and the mythology created by the royal visit.
To get back on topic, the small kilt was in existence before the mythology started, but was adopted as part of it, and it's good to see Englishmen getting out of
the unmanly dress of the Lowlander.

Who are his subjects? What is the primary material that he's missing out on?
Perhaps a read of "Highlanders" by John MacLeod will explain that better than I can. I believe that any history of the Highlands by a person who does not speak Gaelic is going to be missing a lot of the history and culture, and therefore not complete.
