It didn’t look like there was an actual driver holding the reins on those two horses pulling her carrige. Kinda dangerous ain’t it?
The Brits have some beautiful traditions and ceremonies. I would love to see a photograph of only the Queen and Princess Charlotte. The little girl’s face resembles the Queen’s quite a bit.

Indeed, it was extremely impressive.
