August Official Picture of the Month 2007

Welcome to the August Official Picture of the Month 2007!

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 2007 Picture of the Year awards.

For more information on the 2007 Picture of the Month schedule and all we have planned for 2007, take a look at this thread.

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: mathilde16, stephanievl

Britain: Avalon - milla Ca - CasiraghiTrio

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Denmark: dazzling

Dubai: Humera - Warren

Japan: dragonsfire8

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

Monaco: Iceflower - Ianna, Michelle, tbhrc

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - KikkiB, carlota

Spain: LaChicaMadrilena - Anna_R - crisiñaki

Sweden:

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, lucien


The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of August. The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on September 29. During these three weeks, we ask that no one state whom they've voted for so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. For the final week of the month, 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.

Hello everyone and welcome to the newest photo of the month poll. We hope that everyone will vote for their favorite photo. We have some very funny ones and some truly beautiful ones.

As always, please don't post which one you have voted for until the poll closes, so that everyone else can cast their vote unbiased.

Many thanks to the PoM committees who have done an outstanding job as always!

Empress and the PoM committees.

I was not too inspired this time, but of course, I voted all the same. I voted for the pic that on my opinion, represent more the Monarchy spirit.

Thank for your great job, Empress. I love your avatar.

Vanesa.

Smile Glistening Seas

ohhh did the picture on "I" not open for anyone--because it didn't open for me it's simply nooo fun when one pic doesn't work because you can't make a good decision until we see them all. so we await someone to fix that. meantime this month's pics are going to be tough to pic just one. As always Andrew is his usual dashing self and PA looked marvelous and so did norways pics and all the other's too. well, i look forward to SoMeOne fixing the letter "i" pics so we can attempt to make a good choice

Hi Glistening Seas. The I photo is working just fine for me. Let me know if you are still having problems and I will see if something can be done. Try refreshing your browser as well.

Leading in the polls, so far, Spain and Jordan....... neck to neck!

Who will it be? Letizia in her Little Black Dress or Princess Haya being irresistably silly?

Or will it be a surprise? Possibly a last minute breakthrough victory for Norway, who is creeping just behind in third place.......

Oh the suspense!

Great job Empress!

Uhh,but the pic of the Japanese Imperial Couple won't open,for me that is,are there other forum members that can not see it?

The picture of Andrew,actually,that is not the Thai Crown Prince and his spouse,but the recently elected and Enthroned King and Queen of Malaysia.

Getty images are sometimes difficult to view the first time around. Try using the refresh button on the Japanese picture.

Thanks for the correction.

Princess Haya seems to already be showing her baby bump and Yang Mulia Dayang Hjh Norashikin looks pretty in her wedding dress.

I am actually glad to see Jordan still winning.... Although I didn't vote for Jordan, it's nice to see an RF other than Spanish winning for a change, and obviously this one of Princess Haya with her pretty bump and funny face is delightful, the more so because it's so unexpected from her! I hope this isn't offensive to anyone. Please know that I love the Spanish royals. I mean, how is it possible not to love them? You would have to be not human! But it seems like they always win, doesn't it?

Actually Jordan is in 4th place right now. Princess Haya is representing Dubai. But I agree its a nice change to see a non-European family make it to the top 3 I believe that's only the second time that has happened (Jordan came in 3rd a couple of months ago)
