Loving Looks and Gestures (February 2010 Informal Poll)

Welcome to the
February 2010 Informal POM poll

Loving Looks and Gestures


The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 4 April 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]

No Denmark. When I saw the thread I immediately thought of Denmark.

Wonderful pictures, especially those of the 'old' generation. I really hope my favorite will win - it's such a spontaneous and heart warming pic.

What a great result, only a second third place is missing

I'm happy to see both our teams - Monaco and Sweden - on a
shared second place - thanks for all your votes!

Congrats to Spain, Norway, Monaco, Sweden and Belgium! It was not an easy decision, I think the result of the poll reflects it the best. I voted for Spain. Great picture!!

It's amusing that the two pictures between which I was torn (Monaco and Sweden) both got the 2nd place. Finally, I voted for Grace and Rainier. This engagement-photo gained my attention because on the one hand, it looks exceptionally classical or paradigmatic (almost like some promotional photo) but on the other hand, the couple's tender gestures seem to be so natural and spontaneous -simply a beautiful mixture!

Seeing Her_Majesty's avatar makes me think there should be another poll like this in the future.
