Favorite Royal Gala Pictures (March 2010 Informal Poll)

Welcome to the
March 2010 Informal POM poll
featuring
Royal Gala Pictures


The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 4 May 2010. 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.[/CENTER]

I have found a mistake at the descriptions for the pictures: The picture of Denmark was not taken 2010, it was taken one year before, 2009.

But, the provided pictures are all great. The creator of this poll has done a great job.

I cannot decide for which picture I give my vote!

Congratulations to the winners.
The Netherlands was indeed a winner. It was beautiful not only as the gala wear but as an overall.

This time, I've voted for an "outsider" -the photo from Brunei. Crown princess Sarah's richly ornamented dress clearly appealed to me. Its floral design harmonized fantastically with the decoration you can see in the background!
