As per your request, here is a review of the remaining new hats we saw worn this year by members of the Imperial Royal Family. As the first post in this series, I have numbered each one and invite you to name which hats are your favourites in the comments as there are simply too many for a poll. Many of these hats were featured in original posts here- click on photos below jump back to these posts with additional information, views and detail on each hat..
While I still do not think any of these hats are in the running for best overall new royal hat of the year, there are some beautiful millinery details, wonderful shapes and unexpected trimmings not to be missed.

Princess Nobuko returned to royal duties this year after an extended absence due to health issues. I’m so pleased to see that she has recovered because her hats have become some of the most interesting among the Imperial royal family. Which hats here stand out most to you?
