Best Repeated Royal Hat: June 2016

2016 best repeat small

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.

  1. All those beautiful Rachel Trevor Morgan hats on the Queen threw me into a feedback loop. I fought my way out of it by choosing something else altogether. I threw Princess Anne some love for one thing. She deserves some support.
