  1. I consider the Countess of Wessex’s hats to be among her best ever, with her cream picture slice, picture number 1, one of the best new hats this year. Her hat pictured at Number 2, is a close second. I consider the Duchess of Cambridge’s navy saucer hat picture number 16, to be her best hat ever, and one of the best hats of the year. Princess Beatrice’s orange and teal picture hat, picture number 7, was one of her best hats yet. Princess Eugenie’s teal straw cocktail hat with black crin, picture number 9, is her best hat for 2015. Zara Phillips’ navy straw cocktail hat with white crin waves, picture number 13, was her best hat, and the navy and white outfit she wore this with, was her best outfit all year. I consider Autumn Phillips’ cream rose beret cocktail hat, picture number 14, to be one of her best hats ever, and it coordinated well with her outfit.

  2. Great roundup, Hat Queen, though I am surprised to see Kate’s navy omitted. It was my favorite on her all year, possibly ever, and seems to have been well-liked in the comments on the original post.
