April 2009 Official Picture of the Month Poll

Welcome to the
April 2009 Official Picture of the Month Poll!


The monthly official polls will highlight the official side of royalty as opposed to the informal side of royalty.



The monthly polls will consist of pictures that show a royal on official business.
  • gala events such as the Nobel prize ceremonies, state visits, royal ceremonies such as the the Order of the Garter ceremony in Great Britain or the New Years gala for the Knights of the Order of the Elephant in Denmark, Opening of Parliament, coronations, enthronements.
  • openings of public events, government buildings, hospitals, christening of ships, official charity work
  • family celebrations (such as wedding, christening, or special days such as Victoria Day in Sweden or Queen's Day in the Netherlands, King Harald's 70th birthday) and the balcony shots that accompany them
  • among many other official events
We hope by the end of the year to have some really stunning and regal Picture of the Month winners to compete in our 2009 Picture of the Year awards.




If you have any ideas or suggestions for future polls you can post them there or contact Empress, Dazzling or LadyK.


This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.

Belgium: - Marengo, stephanievl, LadyLeana

Britain: TheTruth - jcbcode99

Brunei/Malaysia/Dubai/Morocco: Humera - Warren

Denmark: GlitteringTiaras - Jessrulz, Princess Robijn, Madame Royale

Greece: Rhapsodybrat - Odette

Japan: Dragonsfire8, Al_bina

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Liechtenstein: HRH Kerry

Luxembourg: Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - radker18,

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, Carlota

Spain: Paty - Lula

Sweden: Iceflower, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien



The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of April. It will close on 31 May 2009. During this time, we ask that NO ONE STATE WHOM THEY'VE VOTED FOR so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. After the poll closes, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.


Please note that the links in the above poll have been posted in the order in which they were received and do not reflect the opinions of the moderating team.


Enjoy and have fun!
Empress, LadyK & Dazzling

Omg, I'm exactly 40 minutes too late to vote!!
Well since the poll is closed, then I can reveal I would have voted for CP Mette-Marit. Poll is closed, so my post will not influence other posters.

I'll be quicker to vote next time!!
