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

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

It's great to see so many different Royal Houses again!

And: no doubt; the funniest Poll ever! :lol:

RoyalKnottie 03-10-2008 03:23 PM

{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.

Empress 03-10-2008 07:02 PM

Hello everyone -

For anyone who wishes to change their vote to the Belgian poll, please let me know, and we can do so. This only applies for those that have already voted.


ZandraRae 03-10-2008 08:51 PM

Very funny poll to see after a hard day. haha
Great job guys!

RhapsodyBrat 03-10-2008 11:44 PM

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*:blush:

Lady Jennifer 03-11-2008 12:14 AM

Everything has been fixed. Thanks for the catch.

Maricar 03-11-2008 12:16 AM

Paty 03-11-2008 02:28 PM

LaPlusBelle 03-11-2008 04:29 PM

Who is the other woman in the Spanish picture? A lady in waiting, maybe?

sgl 03-11-2008 04:49 PM

This was a great idea for a poll. The pictures were a lot of fun to look at.

TLLK 03-11-2008 05:27 PM

These are all wonderful photos, {Empress - Edited to take out who they voted for.}

morhange 03-11-2008 08:42 PM

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

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.
