June 2010 Official Picture of the Month Poll
Welcome to the
June 2010 Official Picture of the Month poll

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 4 August 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.

What a lovely poll from day events to an engagement to a wedding.

These photos are lovely - great choices all of them! :flowers: Just a side note: the photo that represents Sweden has nothing to do with the informal side of royalty. Or am I wrong? ;) It's very beautiful though.
