  I watched the royal procession
Updated 05 April 2002, 18.20

Mary and her friends from the 1st Bobbing Guides went to see the royal procession in London.

"The Queen mum was a lovely lady and she was also our patron in the Guides. Both of her daughters were in the 1st Buckingham Palace guides.

The gun carriage

Before the march started we were crossing the road and taking pictures. We saw lots of horses pulling the gun carriage. It was empty, ready to take the Queen Mother's coffin.

There was a lifeguard in a red and gold uniform with huge feathers in his helmet. He was grooming the horses.

As the march went past we saw Prince Harry and Prince William. We saw the crown on the coffin.

When I look back at today I might feel sad for the Queen but I will have my own memories of being here.

Good and bad things


Kids struggle to see
Some good things about today are that it was a very nice sunny day.

Also the march has a long route so plenty of people can see it. There are lots of cameras to let people at home see what is happening.

A bad thing is that you can't see very much because the adults get in the way.

To make it better they could have a special space for kids only. Or they could have a rule that adults must get out of the way."

Mary 11, Sittingbourne, Kent
