When it comes to Royal Hats, 2019 has had a slower start than some other years (not to worry- things will soon pick up!). Despite this, there were still several of repeated designs worn over the past two months that stood out- eight hats that cover a variety of styles and materials, with a cloche, a saucer, a Breton, a bandeau and several brimmed designs in the mix. We’re going to take a second look at these eight hats now and choose the first one in this year’s competition for Favourite Repeated Royal Hat Of The Year.
