    Serbian royalty in procession

  • Description

    Engagement of Prince of Serbia. Location of events unknown.

    Engagement of Prince Alexander (?) of Serbia. Opens w/ the back end of a horse in FG as man in uniform; hat w/ plume; is helped to mount; large white building in BG. The guys helping are wearing various uniforms -- one has a tall hat with lots of long white hair-like strands hanging down. Once he is seated; the other men adjust stirrups. Horse backs away; turns, in FG, another horse is led past. Other horse is got ready; and an older man (who may be King Peter I Karageorgevich) starts to mount - horse seems skittish.

    Cut to shot of the 1st guy; handsome and with moustache; on a beautiful white horse - this man probably the Prince. GV party of 3 ride through street (3rd is a younger guy; maybe another prince). Military parade in progress; shot looking over heads of guards or Army -- including a few with those hats mentioned above -- which looks like 3 giant blonde women standing in front row! Shot of the 3 royals on horses; standing still. Then Shot of a group of women in heavy fur coats; on a balcony? More of procession.
