Kate Middleton has been declared “Hat Person of the Year” by something called The Headwear Association.

In an online poll, the Duchess of Cambridge received an astounding 91% of the vote, beating Rachel Zoe (4%), Ne-Yo (2%), and 1% finishers Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Charlie Sheen.

Middleton joins previous “Hat Person of the Year” recipients Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt.

Founded in 1908, The Headwear Association calls itself the “oldest association in the hat trade.”

When she looks back on this time in her life, the Duchess will surely remember most fondly her defeat of Charlie Sheen and Rachel Zoe in a hat contest.
