The Pearly Kings and Queens Visit Cornwall

One of the craft displays in the Flower tent at The Royal Cornwall Show was produced by local schools. These were freestanding Pearly Kings and Queens. I always found the real Pearly Kings and Queens fascinating to see in London and I had the honour to nurse one of these gentlemen for the last weeks of his life. These models in Cornwall are a long way in distance from the real thing.


A lot of work had gone into their construction.


This last one may appear familiar.


Anyone who saw the balcony appearance at the Trooping of the Colour this year may have seen this "face" chastising William for sitting down!
