Who Wore it Best: July 2013 Poll

The Royal Hats Blog

The Royal Hats Bog When you think of a quintessential summer hat, what do you think of? For me, it’s a classic panama hat. Like us, most royals are on vacation these days and with vacation comes the inevitable sightings of royals in panama hats. Since I have featured exclusively women in these polls so far, I thought it would be fun to do a “Princes Only” version of our monthly poll featuring a string of handsome royal men in summery panama hats. The only question is – in your opinion, Who Wore It Best?
