  • Description

    Queen Alexandra reviews troops.

    Location of events unknown - probably London.

    British troops march on road through park w/ bare trees (could be Green Park or St James's Park - SL). Queen Alexandra; accompanied by a boy of about 12 (see note below) and various military officers and another man & woman - all walking spread apart from each other across some big open space.

    Then shot of Queen A, the lady & boy together in FG; w/ men talking in small groups behind them (seems to be in courtyard of Buckingham Palace? - SL). Military band marching past. Soldiers march past single file; carrying flags; very near Queen A. & boy.

    Note: there is a very slim chance that the teenage boy with Queen Alexandra could be her grandson Prince John, who died in 1919 aged 15. Shots are rather dark, so hard to tell - does anyone know? Queen Alexandra was very fond of her grandson and was oblivious to the fact that he was an outcast in society due to his epilepsy. SL.
