Shot of entrance at Buckingham Palace; with a coach stopped; some people are either coming or going. CU Queen Alexandra with another little girl - but very dark. CU Queen Alexandra sitting in open coach; with another lady - Alexandra always a fashion queen has a tall hat perched on her head and some shiny loose garment - she looks toward camera & speaks; starts to hand flowers down to someone.

    Next; women w/ baskets of flowers hanging from their necks; flyers w/ pictures of Queen Alexandra; pedestrians walk past in FG. Pan rt. on women - last one holding up can for donations. ECU flowers (not regular roses) - fills up whole screen.
