Looking at my photo with the hip, and the description of "thornless or almost". That needs checking on other plants - is Thomases' one wrong, are all of them wrong, is the description wrong?

Or could your photo be that of another rose?
The U.S. 1930, 1930, 1940 and 2010 refs all say “few prickles”.
Trevor Nottle 1979, and Peter Cox 1994 and 1999 as well both say “few prickles”.

There has been much debate about whether ‘Kitty Kininmonth’ has or hasn’t any R. gigantea blood in its sap. It would be of interest to hear of this rose being grown in cool climates – and how cool.

Just to be sure, you've confirmed neither garden has this rose anymore?
