March 2008 Official Picture of the Month Poll

Welcome to the March 2008 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 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 2008 Picture of the Month schedule and all we have planned for 2008, take a look at this thread.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for future polls you can post them there or contact Empress, Lady Jennifer, or Mandy.

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, Johann

Britain: Avalon, Lady Jennifer - milla Ca, Jo of Palatine, TheTruth,

Brunei/Dubai/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, Rhapsody Brat

Spain: Anna_R - crisiñaki, Paty

Sweden: Iceflower, Madame Royale, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien

The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of January. The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on April 28, 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. 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.

For me it was a choice between CP Victoria, Queen Rania and Queen Beatrix.

1. For Queen Beatrix I have voted so often in the past - I simply adore the way she is a "hands on" queen - which led me to decide for another picture this month.

2. I admire Queen Rania's sincere interest in all of her projects. And I think it shows in the pictures just how committed she is. She would have been my No. 1 for this months picture if there weren’t ...

CP Victoria..... captured in the most gorgeous setting of all. The deserted background, herself with hardly any make up, the loose hair and the ferocious animal sitting peacefully on her arm. Just a strikinglybeautiful image.

Some of the pictures were really great, specially those from Sweden, Jordan and The Netherlands. The pictures from Spain, Britain and Japan were nice too. The others were nowhere near. But it is good to see a large picture from Japan for a change. Thanks for all your efforts..They were good pictures in general
