After choosing your favourite hats worn to Ascot and the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, our next pair of polls faces off the remaining royal hats we saw worn in June. Between national days, a Silver Jubilee, weddings and a handful of foreign visits, we saw a number of wonderful new designs. Eleven new hats stood out in particular to you, dearest readers, based on your comments. It’s now time to chose your single favourite.
The eleven finalists are shown below in the order they were worn. Click on each picture or its caption below to jump back to original posts with additional photos and information on each hat:
