Three Generations of Royals (April 2012 Informal Poll)
Welcome to the
March 2012 Informal Picture Poll

Three Generations of Royals!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features pictures of three or more generations of royals.

The poll will close on 15 June 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.

Is this poll supposed to be closed?
I don't think most people ever got the chance to vote in it. :smile:

Noble Consort Ming 05-28-2012 09:29 AM

That was a quick poll! I didn't get to vote either.

Biri 05-28-2012 09:33 AM

The nicest is that of Queen Victoria with her boys.

FasterB 05-28-2012 09:37 AM

It says in the first post that the poll will close the 15th June...

JessRulz 05-28-2012 10:08 AM

Apologies everyone! The incorrect date was entered into the system for the close date, I have now changed that to close on June 15 as per the opening post.

Happy voting!

Artemisia 05-28-2012 10:24 AM

Thanks, Jess! :flowers:
This is one difficult poll; every single picture is priceless from historical point of view.

Sorry, if I might go off-topic, but are there any pictures of five generations together existing?

Wow, five generations, I would be interested in that too, but I expect that that is very rare..

Some more 4 generation pics:

4 generations british royals at 1998 Trooping the Colour

British family: Queen Mary, Queen-Mother Elizabeth, Queen Elizabeth II, Princes Royal Anne

5 generations are very rare, they all need to be young parents.
my last great-grandmother died when i was 18 years old, she was 78 years old, if she lived more years to be like Queen Elizabeth, im sure she would have meet her great-great-grandsons!

Most suitable picture for Jordan is a picture for King Hussein with King Abdullah and CP Hussein.

Grandduchess24 07-27-2012 03:12 PM

There is the pic of the king of Norway, the crown prince of Norway and his daughter, I know it's already been posted but this is the pic when she is a little older and not a baby.

Another pic is of the portrait of the queen mother and her daughter the queen and grandson prince Charles and great grandsons William and Harry.
