Royals on Stamps (June 2012 Informal Poll)
Welcome to the
June 2012 Informal Picture Poll

Royals on Stamps!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features pictures of royals on stamps.

The poll will close on 28 July 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.

I didn't realize we were not supposed to say who we voted for.

:-) kind of disappointed :-) I was hoping for the lovely Swedish stamp from 1980 with the king and cp Victoria :

Artemisia 07-21-2012 08:38 AM

That's a beautiful one!
Mind you, the one that Swedish representatives selected in the end is just as good, so no complaints from me.

I liked a postage stamp of the Prince of Monaco and his beautiful bride he gives the impression turnout on life and optimism, so I gave voice to that stamp
