Informal Picture of the Season Poll Winter 2007
Welcome to the Winter 2007 Informal Picture of the Season Poll !

Since the monthly official polls will highlight the official side of royalty as opposed to the informal side of royalty, we're adding informal photo polls twice this year once in April and once in October. The pictures in this poll reflect the informal and casual moments of our favorite royals during the first months of this year.

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: Danielle - Dennism, Adry, mathilde16

Britain: Avalon - milla Ca - CasiraghiTrio

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Denmark: soCal girl – Lasse Pedersen, Mandy

Japan: vacant

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

Monaco: Iceflower - Ianna, Michelle, tbhrc

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - KikkiB, carlota

Spain: LaChicaMadrilena - Elsa M., Anna_R

Sweden: MoonlightRhapsody - Lena

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, Maxie

The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on April 30. 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.

Prince William visited the Millennium Stadium on February 4, 2007. As he signed the visitor's book at the stadium, he posed directly in besides a framed picture of himself at the age of ten, wearing a red-and-white Welsh scarf and a leaf badge pinned on his suit.
Delighted, the Prince laughed and joked that he was "far better looking them."

Great photos, it's hard to pick just one!

Just little note, is it just my PC, or link for Jordan's informal photo isn't working?

Avalon 04-12-2007 05:50 PM

Amazing choices! :flowers:

The link to the Jordanian picture doesn't work if you click on it. But if you copy the URL - , it will work.

Vanesa 04-13-2007 07:36 PM

Yes...It isn't showing, Avalon...I believed it was my computer that just couldn't enter the site. I wish we could fix the problem. :neutral:

Thank you for all the nice pics...I've no doubt about which one I should choice :rolleyes: , but if I could have choice three inestead of one it hould be just perfect!!!


Avalon 04-13-2007 07:57 PM

The link to the Jordanian picture should be working now. :smile:

dazzling 04-14-2007 01:39 PM

all pictures are beautiful !! each one talks for its own.I though the Dutch Princesses were adorable & the CP's son Of Bruni is sweet.

LadyK 04-14-2007 04:21 PM

This has got to be the hardest picture poll to decide on!!! How am I supposed to choose between adorable Christian, Precious Leonor, and Cute Catharina-Amalia with Countess Eloise? Not to mention, my favorite little royal, Princess Ingrid Alexandria?
Whew.....I can't decide! Well, actually I did, by choice of quality of picture, but man, was that tough!

***side note: is it just me, or did Leo look a lot like Sofia in that picture?

Vanesa 04-14-2007 08:46 PM

Yes..I think she looks more Borbon than Ortiz, but she has something from both sides, anyway...


Marengo 04-16-2007 05:29 AM

I hope that I am the only one with this problem, but the Belgian picture doesn't show up for me directly, only when I copy/paste the adress.

Paty 04-16-2007 07:04 AM

Every links work for me.

Avalon 04-16-2007 08:16 AM

The links work fine for me as well.

Maybe it is the often problem with getty pictures - if the link doesn't open at the first try, click the 'Refresh' button, that usually solves the problem.

nokklav 04-16-2007 01:39 PM

i cannot view the belgium pic. tried to copy teh url in the address bar bt nothing :sad:

Avalon 04-16-2007 01:49 PM

Try to click the "Refresh" button. That usually solves the problem with getty pictures.

nokklav 04-18-2007 12:42 PM

ahtikavalentine 04-19-2007 10:48 PM

Her_Majesty 04-22-2007 03:42 PM

I hope you all voted in the " March Offial Picture Poll", too. :flowers:

Avalon 04-22-2007 05:58 PM

Please don't state who you voted for until the poll is closed.
Thank you! :flowers:

Aurora810 04-25-2007 06:16 PM

Can I ask what thread is the picture for Jordan from? I've been seeing pics that are similar as avatars and now this pic, however I can't seem to find where these pics were originally posted. Can someone lead me in the right direction. Thanks, in advance.
