November 2009 Informal Poll

Welcome to the
November 2009 Informal Picture of the Month Poll!

This month's poll features Favorite Family Photoshoots.


The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 3 January 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.

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
Ladyleana - stephanievl, Marengo

Britain

Brunei/Malaysia/Dubai/Morocco
Humera - Warren

Denmark
Princess Robijn - Jessrulz, Madame Royale

Greece
Rhapsodybrat - Odette

Japan
Dragonsfire8 - Al_bina, kkgg101


Jordan
Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg

Monaco
Iceflower - radker18,

Norway
Her_Majesty - Maura724

Spain
Paty - Ladejesus, Mari_*


Sweden

The Netherlands
Princess Maxima - 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 random order and do not reflect the opinions of the moderating team.

Enjoy and have fun!
LadyK & Dazzling

The variety of pictures IMO are lovely, some pictures with the whole family including aunts and uncle (Morocco) some with grandchildren with their grandma (The Netherlands) and some with the parents which is also really nice.
All the best to the teams

The girl on the left bench is Mabel's and Friso's elder daughter Luana.
The baby Eloise is holding is Leononore, the youngest daughter of Constantijn and Laurentien.

Why thank you.
I don't think I have ever seen a cuter baby than Luana.
