Royals in Military Uniforms (July 2014 Informal Poll)

Welcome to the
July 2014 Informal Picture Poll
Featuring


Royals in Military Uniforms!

We see so many dashing royals in military dress uniforms, with colorful ribbands and glittering medals. But how about the everday working military uniform? Check out what our PoM committees found! The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features royals wearing working military uniforms.

The poll will close on 30 August 2014. During this time you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for, as long as you say why. Did we forget to list your favorite picture? Let us know!

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.
