Hat worn by duchess made in Kansas
TONGANOXIE, Kan. (AP) — The Christmas Day wardrobe for the Duchess of Cambridge included a touch of Kansas.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Kate Middleton wore a Vallnord alpaca fur hat from Tonganoxie-based Peruvian Connection on Monday to a Christmas service in Sandringham, England.
The company has a store in London, and six in the U.S., including one in Kansas City, Missouri. Peruvian Connection has operated in rural Tonganoxie for more than 40 years.
