Picture of the Month - November 2006
Welcome to November's Picture of the Month poll!
So that we can keep the Picture of the Month poll in compliance with the recent rule changes regarding the sharing of copyrighted photos here at The Royal Forums, this month's candidates for Picture of the Month are presented to you in the form of weblinks. We hope your enthusiasm for the polls will remain at its customary exuberance. To view the photos, click on the links.
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: Danielle - Dennism, Adry
Britain: ysbel - Avalon, Warren
Brunei: Humera - Warren
Denmark: soCal girl – Lasse Pedersen, Mandy, norwegianne
Japan: mandyy - kei893265, merampo

The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on December 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 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.

Well...I'm very sure of my vote, as usual. And I must be grateful to the people who post so excellent photographies. :flowers:
Wow, it's hard to chose only 1 picture this month...:rolleyes:
There are many wonderful pictures..
It took a while , but I decided on one!:flowers:
Seems I'm not able to open the English link.
Congratulations Committees for their choices!!!
The link to the British Picture of the Month is working now. If anyone has any problems with it, just click the 'Refresh' button.
Please don't say who you've voted for, until the poll has been closed!
My goodness, when did little Irene get so big?? I wouldn't have recognized her!
In the Monaco photo is that Princess Caroline or is it Princess Stephanie? It looks more like Stephanie to me.
What made me think it was not Caroline was because she does not have a wedding ring on her left hand. But of course the Germans wear wedding rings on the right hand don't they?
Anyway thank you anna for your response
Thanks everyone for voting! :flowers:
hehe christian's little encounter with australian nature :P
My favourite picture won. :flowers:
Prince Christian really won my heart! He's too adorable! He looked so interested in the nature and he looks like a curious little boy!
I also like the picture from Japan! Aiko's dress is so cute!
Thanks for the beautiful pictures!
(Will there be something like a Picture of the Year? Where you can vote your favourite picture from all the months? So always the most liked picture of each month or something? That would be interesting, wouldn't it???)
First, we have to get through the December Picture of the Month Poll which will be posted January 7th.
We also believe they will be very interesting and enjoyable polls!
Good luck to everyone on both polls!
