While we royal hat fans focus on Ascot each June, the rest of this month has no shortage of royal hat wearing opportunities. This year was no different and between the Epsom Races, Trooping the Colour, garden parties, state visits and a busy schedule of regular engagements, we saw lots of wonderful hats.
Looking at the repeated hats, there were twelve designs that, based on your comments, stood out as particularly admired designs. We’re now going to closer look at these beauties and choose one (or maybe two?) hats to move forward in our year-long quest to find Readers’ Favourite Repeated Royal Hat of 2018.
