M/S of the King walking past a line of Naval officers. M/S of a solider in a busby introducing the King and Queen to important people on a station platform, a woman presents some flowers to the Queen, the King then makes a speech before climbing aboard a train (there is a lot of hand shaking and hand kissing before this actually happens!).

    M/S of King Ferdinand and King George V walking along a line of soldiers in busbies. L/S of a procession of Royal carriages passing down a crowd lined street, flags and bunting hang overhead. High angled shot of the procession coming down the street, the carriages and accompanied by soldiers on horseback. L/S of the procession coming down the Mall under Admiralty Arch.
