Royals in Traditional Dress (June 2014 Informal Poll)
 
Welcome to the
June 2013 Informal Picture Poll
Featuring


Royals in Traditional Dress!

Kimonos, caftans, bunads- just a few examples of traditional national dress- the theme of this month's poll! The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features royals wearing prints and florals.

The poll will close on 30 July 2014. During this time you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for, as long as you say why. Did we forget to list your favorite picture? Let us know!

My favorite is estelle

I agree sancakli70. Estelle is just the cutest little lady. The other photo I liked was the Norwegian royals. They looked great. You could have knocked me over with a feather though to find out after all these years that Monaco has a national costume.

The gorgeous Queen of Buthan is missing here:flowers:
She is a winner hands down.

The royals of Brunei and Malaysia need to be represented too,even if their outfits are a bit too colourful

F and J are by no means 'national dress' for these respective countries...

Imanmajed 07-23-2014 01:16 AM

Good morning. My favorites are B and E.

In order to make sure as many as possible royal houses could participate, we decided to include royals wearing national colors as well.
