Silly Picture Poll

Welcome to the March informal poll- the silliest royal picture. These are pictures that have not been seen in past polls. In addition to current reigning royals we also have pictures of non-reigning royals as well.

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.

Bahrain: Dazzling

Belgium: Marengo, stephanievl, Johann

Britain: Avalon, Ysbel - milla Ca, Jo of Palatine, TheTruth,

Brunei/Malaysia: Humera - Warren

Denmark: Dazzling, Jessrulz, GlitteringTiaras

Egypt: Little_star

Iran: Little_star

Italy: Dazzling

Japan: Dragonsfire8, Vanesa

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg: Dazzling - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - tbhrc, radker18, sgl

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - Kikkib, carlota, Atene, RhapsodyBrat

Portugal: TheTruth

Qatar: Dazzling

Reuss: Her_Majesty

Russia: TheTruth

Saudi Arabia: Dazzling

Spain: Anna_R - crisiñaki, Paty

Sweden: ZandraRae, Gita, Furienna

Thailand: Little_star

The Netherlands: The Watcher, Marengo, Lucien

Thurn und Taxis: Her_Majesty



The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on March 31. 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, Lady Jennifer & Mandy

{Empress - Edit to take out who poster preferes} I just can't decide who looks the funniest. I think its a tie between sad Sofia and "always goofy looking" Jamie.

this can be a real laugh trip! and a lot of them are very captionable. although you've mixed up letters D (Thurn und Taxis) and E (Reuss) in the choices.

*and, um, my name didn't get included in the Norwegian team. i was part of the committee. he he*

Wow, Sofia and Jaime look REALLY bored. I hope Spain wasn't playing in whatever game they were watching.

These are all really funny! I think for the Danish one though, you should have mentioned that Christian had just clocked his mum on the head before the photo.
