October 2009 Official Picture of the Month Poll

Welcome to the
October 2009 Official Picture of the Month Poll!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 2 December 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.

Ladyleana - stephanievl, Marengo

TheTruth - jcbcode99

Humera - Warren

Princess Robijn - Jessrulz, Madame Royale

Rhapsodybrat - Odette

Dragonsfire8 - Al_bina, kkgg101

Humera - Little_star, salma

Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Iceflower - radker18,

Her_Majesty - Maura724

Paty - Ladejesus, Mari_*

Iceflower - HRH Kerry

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
