September 2009 Official PoM Poll

Welcome to the
September 2009 Official Picture of the Month Poll!


The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 2 November 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, kkgg101

Jordan
Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg
Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco
Iceflower - radker18,


Norway
Her_Majesty - Maura724

Spain
Paty - Ladejesus, Mari_*

Sweden
Iceflower - HRH Kerry

The Netherlands
Princess Maxima - 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

How on earth is one supposed to pick a single picture from all those wonderful choices?
I did vote, but that was a hard decision: there were 5 pictures which I liked equally. In the end, I chose the most official and regal one of my favourites.

Another selection of great pictures, good job everyone!

Yeah, well, once you add the Belgian picture, even that might not be much of a help!

You know, it's always great to see neck-and-neck races in this polls.
It somehow gives all of us the affirmation that our teams have been chosing good pics.

Congratulations to the Netherlands! I voted for this picture - it's just awsome. But all pictures were wonderful, great selection and so it was again quite hard to choose.

I'm another one who voted for the Dutch picture: never could resist all the pomp and splendour of such grand occasions, from the magnificent coach, to white gloves, footmen and swords. A truly 'Royal' picture.
British, Belgian, Swedish, Norwegian and Japanese selections were close seconds for me, with all the others as close thirds. So all in all, I was extremely glad for the Dutch picture.
