One thought on “Princess Elizabeth’s Bard Initiation

  1. This is so very cool! I’m sorry that this probably no longer takes place, at least not for the royals. I certainly have not heard of Prince Charles being initiated in the same manner. More’s the pity, since as the Prince of Wales, this could have been one of the rites of passage in which he would take part. From the film, it looks like everyone was having a great time in a convivial atmosphere. And that’s probably another thing that couldn’t happen today, for security reasons.
