  • Short Summary

    George II, former King of Greece, takes part in Carnival in Cromer with ex-Queen, Elizabeth.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Ex-King George and Queen Elizabeth of Greece, welcomed by Sir William Bull as King Canute, and take part in Fete and Carnival".

    Cromer, Norfolk.

    This version is almost identical to EX. KING GEORGE AND QUEEN ELIZABETH version 1 of 2. There are some more shots of King George and Queen Elizabeth, formerly of Greece, with King Canute character. We also see the royal couple walk down steps followed by people in fancy dress, including people in white robes and hoods - look like Klu Klux Klan!

    Note: a green tinted print of this story exists.

    Cuts exist - see separate records for details.
