After slowly narrowing down our favourite repeated royal hats over the past year, it’s now down to ten. Ten unique designs, made by six different milliners and worn on six different royal heads. There are perchers, gently sideswept brims, a saucer, picture hats and two dramatic upsweeps trimmed with an array of silk flowers, quills, ruffles, twists and feathers.
