Royal Engagement Pictures (February 2011 Informal Poll)
Welcome to the February 2011 Picture of the Month Informal Poll

Featuring Royal Engagement Pictures

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. It will close on 29 March 2011. 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.

My favorite engagement photo of all time is one of Princess Anne and Mark Philips, taken in a corridor of Buckingham Palace. She is wearing an evening gown and he is in uniform.

I really liked picture A and picture F :D

I felt the Egypt picture was not fairly represented :). She obviously was well familiarized with grace and etiquette, representing her house with beauty and propriety. I unfortunately missed the poll, but had i not, she would have been my vote.
