Royal State Visits (March 2013 Informal Poll)

Welcome to the
March 2013 Informal Picture Poll

Royal State Visits!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features photos of state visits.

The poll will close on 30 April 2013. During this time you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for, as long as you say 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.
