July 2009 Official Picture of the Month Poll

Welcome to the
August 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 formal 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.





The pictures in this poll reflect the official royal events of June. It will close on 30 August 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.

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

Luxembourg: Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - radker18,

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, Maura724

Romania: Marsel -

Russia: Marsel -

Spain: Paty -

Sweden: Iceflower, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien


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

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!
LadyK & Dazzling

All the pictures were really good and, as usual, highlighted some very interesting moments of the past month.

Congratulations to Sweden!


There were some amazing pictures this month and, as usual, it was a pretty hard choice.
I couldn't decide between the picture of Victoria and Daniel and the picture of Queen Fabiola with an apple. I voted for the Belgian picture but it was a very hard choice.
The picture of Queen Elizabeth looking at the swan was amazing as well.

I also really enjoyed the picture of Fabiola. It's just great to see the lovely Lady out and about with the rest of the family after all the worries about her.

I voted the same way. The Wilhelm Tell act of Fabiola made me laugh, and it shows that dispite of her health problems she didn't lose any of her vivacity and her sense of humour.
