April 2010 Official Picture of the Month Poll
Welcome to the
April 2010 Official POM poll

The pictures in this poll show the official duties of royalty. It will close on 4 June 2010. 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.

Well, this poll's result was not so difficult to guess in advance...I myself was one of the many people with a clear preference for the Norway-picture. I.m.o., it is often quite funny to watch children paying attention to things adults are not paying attention to or -like in this case- the other way around :lol:.
