September 2007 Official Picture of the Month Poll

Welcome to the September Official Picture of the Month 2007!

The monthly official polls will highlight the official side of royalty as opposed to the informal side of royalty.

The monthly polls will consist of pictures that show a royal on official business.
  • gala events such as the Nobel prize ceremonies, state visits, royal ceremonies such as the the Order of the Garter ceremony in Great Britain or the New Years gala for the Knights of the Order of the Elephant in Denmark, Opening of Parliament, coronations, enthronements.
  • openings of public events, government buildings, hospitals, christening of ships, official charity work
  • family celebrations (such as wedding, christening, or special days such as Victoria Day in Sweden or Queen's Day in the Netherlands, King Harald's 70th birthday) and the balcony shots that accompany them
  • among many other official events
We hope by the end of the year to have some really stunning and regal Picture of the Month winners to compete in our 2007 Picture of the Year awards.

For more information on the 2007 Picture of the Month schedule and all we have planned for 2007, take a look at this thread.

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: Marengo, Stephanievl

Britain: Avalon - milla Ca - CasiraghiTrio

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Denmark: dazzling, Jessrulz

Dubai: Humera - Warren

Japan: dragonsfire8

Jordan: Humera - Little_star - salma

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

Monaco: Iceflower - Ianna, Michelle, tbhrc

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - KikkiB, carlota

Spain: LaChicaMadrilena - Anna_R - crisiñaki

Sweden: ZandraRae, Furienna, Gita

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, lucien


The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of September. The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on October 26. 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. For the final week of the month, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

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.

Please try refreshing your page. It might simply be that the photo is also taking a while to load.

That doesn't seem to be the problem; it takes forever just hanging there, and then it defaults to an error message which doesn't look like the Getty error messages.

AOL Search

Not sure refreshing that will help much.

I didn't have problems viewing the original link as well.
In any case, the new link has now replaced the old one both in the Poll and in Empress's post.

Bear in mind, however, that it may take some time till the picture loads, because of its size.

I can't see the one from getty images. I just get a line of code:

Beatiful pics! Thank you, Empress! This time, my choice was more easy than ever. But it was somewhat partial too...

You are able to discuss those as those are not the official poll. This is an official poll set up to give a bit of excitement to the process, and that excitement would be lost if everyone told who they voted for don't you think?
