Informal Holiday Poll 2008

Welcome to the April informal poll
Favorite Holiday Photo

These are pictures that have not been seen in past polls. In addition to current reigning royals we also have pictures of non-reigning royals as well.

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. Some individual members also gave their time and effort to choose picture from the non-reigning houses.


Belgium: Marengo, stephanievl, Johann

Britain: milla Ca, Jo of Palatine, TheTruth,

Brunei/Malaysia: Humera - Warren

Denmark: GlitteringTiaras, Jessrulz, Princess Robijn

Japan: Dragonsfire8 - Vanesa

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg: JessRulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - tbhrc, radker18, sgl

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, carlota, Atene, RhapsodyBrat

Spain: Anna_R - crisiaki, Paty

Sweden: iceflower - Madame Royale, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien


The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on 28 April 2008. 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.

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, Mandy & Dazzling

When I used the "picture link" in Dazzling's post, I also got some weird thing. But then I went up to the top of the page where the list of choices are in the voting box. Just to the right of the voting choice with the letters are links in blue. I then clicked on the link next to the "b" (which is Belgium's pic)and the pic came up perfectly. Try that!

Our guideline for this Poll:
Quote:
Favorite Holiday Photo
- Must show an official Holiday in that royals country. For the period of November 2006- January 2008.
The Spanish easter celebrations took place after January 2008 (obviously ). That's why it's not involved in the poll.
