How’s this for a right royal ceremony?

Kids from Staincliffe Manorfield had a special ceremony for their chosen monarchs!

The ‘Queen and Duke’ of Batley looked resplendent in their very own royal carriage, complete with a set of kid horses and spear-wielding guards!

Do you remember this event? Were you part of the ceremony?
