Best Repeated Royal Hat of 2016

2016 best repeat small

This is it.

Throughout the past year, we have narrowed down our favourite royal hats through a series of monthly polls. It is now time to choose our winners of the year. First up is the race for favourite repeated design.

As in all previous polls, click on any of the photos below to jump back to original posts with additional pictures and information on each design. Please note that while several of these hats were worn more than once last year, they are only shown below in the outing that won one of the monthly semifinal polls.

Voting will remain open until Tuesday, January 31 at midnight GMT and each computer or mobile device can vote twice per day for as many hats as you wish. To avoid unnecessary influence, results will remain hidden until the poll closes. As this is a tight race, I encourage you to refer back to the original posts to look at each hat’s detail.

  1. As per HQ’s comments on the New Hat poll – you can vote for more than one in one go, simply check all the boxes of all the hats you’d like to endorse. No limit on how many you can vote for at once! The information is just above the voting form.

  2. These are all so fabulous, love each and every one. Máxima’s slice hats are so very beautiful. I’m a sucker for flowers under the brim so I thought #9 was terrific. But in the end I voted for #8 – so unique and lovely. Thanks for posting this retrospective of last year.

  3. This is so exciting. I love seeing these splendid hats all on one page like this. Every one of these hats is a winner. It is almost impossible to narrow it down to one but I have. However, I wonder how many like me will be tempted to vote several times for different hats. Thank you HQ.
