Best New Royal Hat of 2015: Great Britain Part 1

2015 best hat small

We have come to our final royal house in our look at the best new royal hats of 2015. There were, however, so many British royal hats this year that we’ll narrow down our favourites in two royal polls. To streamline each one, I have omitted a number of less memorable hats (links are provided below).Click on any of the photos to jump back to original posts to see additional description and detail of the hats.

The hats with the most votes across this semifinal will move forward to a final poll. If you don’t think any of these hats are worthy of the title of Best of 2015, save your vote (or jump back to vote again for hats from Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Norway as well as Monaco, Greece, Dubai and Qatar).

Queen Elizabeth (not including this blue and magenta hat, this blue tweed hat, this grey bowed hat, this black hat, this blue bucket hat, this white hat, this white hat, this turquoise pleated hat, this pale peach hat and the red hat with faux fur trim she wore yesterday)

  1. I consider the Queen Elizabeth’s yellow hat with tea rose trim, picture 3, the best of a fairly boring hat selection from her this year. The Duchess of Cornwall’s sky blue flyaway brim hat, pictured at 9, was her only outstanding hat this year. She has had better millinery years. I consider Princess Alexandra’s turquoise hat with tulle and feathers, pictured at 12, to be one of her best hats ever, and definitely one of the best British Royal hats for 2015. This shade of blue is perfection on her.

  2. HatQueen, are we not going to vote on hats from the Imperial Family of Japan? They had many new hats this year that I liked. The Imperial Family may not give us the most breathtaking hats, but they can be relied upon to give us some good ones! Best Wishes for the Festive Season to HatQueen and all the Royal Hat fandom.

  3. Thanks for these retrospectives HatQueen! I am amazed at just how many new Royal hats were worn this year. I have to say that I was rather disappointed Her Majesty didn’t wear a greater variety of hat types like she did years ago.

  4. i would love to see the hat Queen Elizabeth wore during the opening ceremony of the CHOGM included. Its such a lovely piece and fits her so well

  5. Another year of old hats from HM. The yellow with the feather pouf was a lovely one. Though I wish it were possible to bite for all of her new hats, as I absolutely loved the grey/brown one with the oversized now. Never mind!
