And then there were nine.
Nine new royal hats that made their debut in 2019 to great acclaim. In felt ribbon and straw, in saucer, beret percher, disc and helmet shapes, in colours from the soft to the saturated, these beautifully made designs are the ones we admired most this year. It’s now time for another look at these beauties, choosing one to be crowned Favourite New Royal Hat of 2019.
