Picture of the Month - June 2006
Welcome to June's Picture of the Month poll!

To emphasize that the Picture of the Month polls are different from other polls around the forum, and that the emphasis should be on the pictures rather than the royal houses for which they represent, instead of the country name, the pictures are embedded into the poll choices this month. To see the image in its full size, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

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: Mette2 - Dennism and Danielle

Spain: mtbcm - LaChicaMadrilena, Elsa M., Anna_R

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Morocco: Humera - Amira

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Monaco: tbhrc - Ianna, Michelle, Iceflower

Japan: mandyy - kei893265, merampo

Norway: purple_platinum - Larzen, LaMinka

Sweden: purple_platinum - Lena, GrandDuchess

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, Maxie

Britain: princejohnny25 - ysbel, HMQueenElizabethII, Avalon

Denmark: H.M. Margrethe - Mandy and norwegianne

The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on July 23. 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 pictures in the above poll have been posted in a random order, first by their shape (portrait or landscape), and do not reflect any personal feelings of The Moderating Team.

June was certainly a good month for royals! There are so many nice pictures, again! Thanks to all the teams who put in time to choose these wonderful pictures. Sometimes I wish we could vote for more than just one! :D

Well...You already know. How I like little royals! Its hard to choice a single pic between so wonderful photos. Good job everyone. All the pics were great.

Please remember not to state who you're voting for until the poll is closed.

We don't want the comments of others to influence voting!

HRH Mims 07-03-2006 03:41 PM

Pictures are great!
I wanna ask: How can I join a team, which chooses pictures for poll?
Thanks in advance!

morhange 07-03-2006 04:14 PM

The royal kids and babies make it a tough choice, but the royal adults looking their regal best aren't helping my decision any!
