Weddings of Minor Royals

Welcome to the
May 2013 Informal Picture Poll
Featuring


The Weddings of Minor Royals!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features pictures of weddings of 'minor' or 'lesser' royals- those royals a step or two away from the main lines of succession.

The poll will close on 30 June 2013. During this time you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for, as long as you say 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 voted for picture E, because I really like Zeina's dress. I also like pictures G, C and A. There were so many lovely bright colours in photo A!

I voted for I, Brunei. Oh my, so much beautiful bling - but the stunning bride shines through all of that... it actually accentuates her lovely face.

It's interesting that voters have very similar comments for Brunei. I know Warren made the same remark when had to select our entry out of several pics of Bruneian royals.
I voted for I as well. A truly radiant, happy bride who is not over-whelmed by all her finery.
