Kate gets the measure of guardsman’s uniform on visit to Yorkshire textile mill

The Princess of Wales marvelled at the fabric used for her husband’s wedding military uniform during a visit to a textile mill on Tuesday 26 September.

Kate visited Yorkshire manufacturer AW Hainsworth and was given a guided tour of the business, from yarn to fabric, at the firm which has a close association with her family.

She “loved” the smell of the wool used during the manufacturing process.

The company, based in the small town of Pudsey, makes textiles for a range of clients, from fashion houses like Gucci and woven felt for Steinway pianos to the red tunics worn by guardsmen.
