Royal Vacations Photos (informal poll)

Welcome to the August informal poll
Royal Vacations Photos
(Covering the period of August 2007 - August 2008)


These are pictures that have not been seen in past polls.

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. Some individual members also gave their time and effort to choose picture from the non-reigning houses.


Belgium: - Marengo, stephanievl, Johann


Britain: TheTruth - jcbcode99


Brunei/Dubai/Malaysia: Humera - Warren

Denmark: GlitteringTiaras - Jessrulz, Princess Robijn

Japan: Dragonsfire8, Al_bina

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg: Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - radker18,

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, Rhapsody Brat

Spain: Paty, Cecile76

Sweden: Iceflower, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien

German Princely Families: GlitteringTiaras,

Liechtenstein: HRH Kerry


The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on October 3, 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.

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.

Enjoy and have fun!

Empress, Mandy & Dazzling

Wow, this was really hard choice! All pictures submitted were amazing but there were 3 that were very special for me. Like in case of the formal poll, I wish we had more choices. In the end, I just ended up selected randomely one of 3 of my favourites.

I like to the Dutch Royal family. The Luxembourg one is quite nice; Maria Teresa does not look as ordinary/hickish as she usually looks.
