    Background: SYNOPSIS: (music) "The welcome was everything it was expected to he and a lot more...."
    ..The Queen was on her way to Constitution Square to the Festival of Bandera."
    "This is an intensely nationalist occasion, the one day in the year when millions of children all over Mexico get together to honour the National flag...this is the first time ever that a foreigner has been invited to join the President in the ceremony."
    "As the flag was raised five thousand children in the stands, all with different cards formed pictures.

    It was done with breathtaking precision. The Royal visitors can not fail to have been impressed".
