While the overall number of royal hatted events slowed down considerably over the summer, the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme and a number of foreign visits saw numerous occasions which included hats. Based on your comments, nine repeated millinery designs stood out to you in July and August as particularly impressive – it is these designs that we now face off to pick a single winner that will move on to our year-end contest for best repeated royal hat of 2016.
