Harrow’s town centre was transformed into a royal palace today, as hundreds of children from schools across the borough attended a special pre-coronation ceremony.
Dressed in full regalia as kings and queens, the youngsters were accompanied by their teachers and TAs as they paraded down St Anns Road towards Katie’s statue.
The event, organised by the Harrow BID team, was attended by hundreds of people from across the area, including local businesses like McDonald’s, who provided happy meals for attendees. Metro Bank also got involved, with a special mascot on hand to provide goody bags to participating children.
The highlight of the ceremony was a special presentation conducted by the Mayor of Harrow, who anointed a ‘king and queen’ from among the children in attendance.
The Pearly, Queen, and King from Harrow were also on hand, making a rare appearance to lend their support to the festivities.
The pre-coronation ceremony is just one of many events taking place in Harrow in the lead up to the coronation of the new King and Queen, which is set to take place tomorrow.
With such a strong turnout from the local community, it looks like the coronation is shaping up to be an event that Harrow will remember for years to come.
