Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebrations brought us over 50 royal hats worn the first weekend in early June. While many of these designs were new ones, there were six repeated designs that stood out to you, based on your comments, as millinery successes. It’s now time to choose one winner to move forward in our ongoing countdown to favourite repeated royal hat of the year.
Click on any of the photos to jump back to their original feature posts with additional photos, information and discussion on each hat. Here are the six millinery finalists:
Duchess of Cornwall’s blue Philip Treacy picture hat with crin and straw flying ribbons on June 10
Duchess of Cambridge’s cream straw Jane Taylor percher beret with white flower trim on June 10
Princess Anne’s cream straw hat with chocolate underbrim and hatbands, trimmed with feathers on June 10
Princess Beatrice’s orange felt Sarah Can’t percher hat worn for Trooping the Colour on June 11
Duchess of Conrwall’s white Philip Treacy picture hat with sweeping brim and ostrich feather crown wrap on June 11
Queen Elizabeth’s magenta Angela Kelly design with floral and feather trim worn for the Patron’s luncheon on June 12
This poll will remain open until Thursday, July 21 at midnight GMT. Each computer or mobile device may vote twice per day for as many hats as you wish although for this poll, there will be just one winner. To avoid unnecessary influence, results will remain hidden until the poll closes. Happy voting!
