Royals Going to School (August 2009 Informal Poll)

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

This month's poll features Royals Going to School.







The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 8 October 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.

Belgium: - LadyLeana, stephanievl, Marengo

Britain: TheTruth - jcbcode99

Brunei/Malaysia/Dubai/Morocco: Humera - Warren

Denmark: Princess Robijn - Jessrulz, Madame Royale

Greece: Rhapsodybrat - Odette

Japan: Dragonsfire8 - Al_bina

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg: Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - radker18,

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, Maura724

Romania: Marsel -

Russia: Marsel -

Spain: Paty - Ladejesus, Mari_*

Sweden: Iceflower - HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: The Watcher - 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

Unlike most children, Princess Ileana, the youngest daughter of Ferdinand I and Queen Marie of Romania, never got away from studies even during the holidays: when they spent time in one of their summer villas, a special outdoor classroom was designed for the royal children to continue their studies.



B. Monaco

First day at school for a proud little princess - Princess Grace of Monaco accompanies her youngest daughter Princess Stephanie, 6, to her first day at school in Monaco on September 20, 1971.

Love the Monaco picture. I think it is the best. 2nd would be the Russian and 3th the British.
No offense but I don't see anything special in the spanish one. They look great but I think that its quality and content does not really compete with the originality and uniqueness of the other pictures.
ooops!!just read the first posts!! the vote is over right??

Congratulations to Spain!
Leonor is one of the cutest girls ever, and definitely a Daddy's girl too.
The Norwegian picture was adorable as well - Ingrid Alexandra is just too cute for words.

I couldn't decide between two pictures though: the Romanian picture of Princess Ileana and the Monaco picture. I voted for the Romanian one (and yes, I know it might not be very ethical, since I nominated it in the first place): I just loved the beautiful setting, the wooden furniture and huts and the straw roofs - things you don't really associate with Royals. And in the midst, the young Princess, surrounded by all those heavy and morbid looking books.
The Monaco picture was one of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen, really very artistic. Stephanie was such a cutie! Loved Prince Albert's pants.
