Rustic Rites - Suzanne and Julie

Duration: 03:31 minutes

Suzanne and Julie were crowned as May Queens.

What did they make of this royal, but rustic rite?

Suzanne worried about falling off the throne in 1969.

Julie wondered where the daisies on her dress had come from in 1972.

Looking back, Suzanne and Julie reflect on royalty, ritual and the passage of time.

What do they remember about being crowned as queens for the day?

What did it mean to them and what did they mean to the tradition?
