I have been errant, dearest readers, in keeping up with our polls for favourite new and repeated royal hats. As such, we have several months to catch up, something we’ll do over coming weeks. Perhaps with this delay, you will be able to view these designs with fresh eyes and confidently pick your favourites!
Over the summer and early autumn, there were six repeated royal hats which, based on your comments, stood out as particularly successful designs.
Queen Elizabeth in a peach straw hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan with upswept brim worn July 6 in Scotland
Crown Princess Mary’s natural straw hat with curved brim by Susanne Juul worn August 17
Countess of Wessex’s blue swirled straw percher with crin flowers by Jane Taylor worn Sep 29
Now it’s time to cast your votes! The poll will remain open until next Thursday, November 30 at midnight GMT and and each computer or mobile device can vote twice per day for as many hats as you wish. If you can’t choose, cast a vote for all of them! Happy voting!
