June is always the busiest month of the year for royal hats and this year was no exception. Between foreign visits, weddings, the Order of the Garter service and regular royal engagements, last month we saw a LOT of hats! Fourteen repeated millinery designs stood out to you as particularly impressive, based on your comments, and it is these fourteen that we now face off to pick a single winner that will move on to our year-end contest for best repeated royal hat this year.
Click on any of the photos below to jump back to original posts with additional pictures and information on each design.

Voting will remain open until August 8th at midnight GMT and each computer or mobile device can vote twice per day for as many hats as you wish. To avoid unnecessary influence, results will remain hidden until the poll closes. With immense diversity in the colour, scale and style of the hats here, choosing your favourite(s) may be a challenge. Good luck!
