Royals Planting Trees (March 2012 Informal Poll)
Welcome to the
March 2012 Informal Picture Poll
Royals Planting Trees!
The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll pictures of royals planting trees.
The poll will close on 27 April 2012. 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.

Hard choice, as usual.

Congratulations to the winning teams!
All the pictures were great but for me, the best one was Jordan's picture with Prince Ali, Princess Rym and the adorable Princess Jalilah.
I absolutely adore the one from Britain of Prince Charles!:lol: Who knew tree-planting could be so fulfilling:smile:
