Official Royal Pictures (December 2012 Informal Poll)
Welcome to the
December 2012 Informal Picture Poll

Official Royal Pictures

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features features official royal pictures- those wonderful pictures released by the royal houses..

The poll will close on 30 January 2013. 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 missed voting in this poll, but love the pictures anyway. Thank you. Is there a reason why a couple of the Royal Families which are normally included were missing this time?

LadyK 02-09-2013 01:09 PM

Unfortunately those committees did not submit pictures to this poll.
