March 2008 Official Picture of the Month Poll
Welcome to the March 2008 Official Picture of the Month Poll!
The monthly official polls will highlight the official side of royalty as opposed to the informal side of royalty.
The monthly polls will consist of pictures that show a royal on official business.
For more information on the 2008 Picture of the Month schedule and all we have planned for 2008, take a look at this thread.
If you have any ideas or suggestions for future polls you can post them there or contact Empress, Lady Jennifer, or Mandy.
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.

The pictures of this poll reflect the official royal events of January. The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on April 28, 2008. 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.

Queen Beatrix opened CORPUS on March 4. CORPUS is a 'journey through the human body' during which the visitor can see, feel and hear how the human body works.
There are some really cool pictures in this bunch!
yeah, they get more and more beautiful each time!
For me it was a choice between CP Victoria, Queen Rania and Queen Beatrix.
1. For Queen Beatrix I have voted so often in the past - I simply adore the way she is a "hands on" queen - which led me to decide for another picture this month.
2. I admire Queen Rania's sincere interest in all of her projects. And I think it shows in the pictures just how committed she is. She would have been my No. 1 for this months picture if there weren’t ...
CP Victoria..... captured in the most gorgeous setting of all. The deserted background, herself with hardly any make up, the loose hair and the ferocious animal sitting peacefully on her arm. Just a strikinglybeautiful image.
:ohmy:wooow whaaat an awesome pic of the netherlands completely "cool" i would agree on the other pics you chose as well although i think Pa looked marvelous with the "young one" on his b-day and as always all the others looked marvelous as well. Always the tough choice to pick. :monacostandard::TRFrules:
Some of the pictures were really great, specially those from Sweden, Jordan and The Netherlands. The pictures from Spain, Britain and Japan were nice too. The others were nowhere near. But it is good to see a large picture from Japan for a change. Thanks for all your efforts..They were good pictures in general :flowers:
