The Funny Faces of Royals (October 2009 Informal Poll)
 
Welcome to the
October 2009 Informal Picture of the Month Poll!

This month's poll features the Funny Faces of Royals.







The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 2 December 2009. During this time, we ask that NO ONE STATE WHOM THEY'VE VOTED FOR so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. After the poll closes, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

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: - LadyLeana, stephanievl, Marengo

Britain: TheTruth - jcbcode99

Brunei/Malaysia/UAE/Morocco: Humera - Warren

Denmark: Princess Robijn - Jessrulz, Madame Royale

Greece: Rhapsodybrat - Odette

Japan: Dragonsfire8, kkgg101

Jordan: Humera - Little_star, salma

Luxembourg: Jessrulz - grim_lady, kyansaunt20

Monaco: Iceflower - radker18,

Norway: Her_Majesty - Maura724

Romania: Marsel -

Russia: Marsel -

Spain: Paty - Ladejesus

Sweden: Iceflower, HRH Kerry

The Netherlands: Princess Maxima, Marengo, Lucien


If you have any ideas or suggestions for future polls you can post them there or contact Dazzling or LadyK.

Please note that the links in the above poll have been posted in random order and do not reflect the opinions of the moderating team.


Enjoy and have fun! :flowers:

Norway was one of the best. The different pictures in the collage were hilarioues IMO. Queen Sonja does have some really funny expressions.

Congrats to the winning teams.
