HUNDREDS of people witnessed queens and princesses being chosen for St Neots Carnival Court.
Five girls were crowned fully-fledged royalty as winners of the competition, beating eight other entries in the two categories. The judges, including the carnival queen of Corby, struggled to narrow it down to just one winner per category agreeing on Nicola Henderson, 18, as queen with Lauren Parren, nine, being chosen as Princess. Other winners included Katie Meredith, 17, as deputy queen and Cassy Long, 18, as the lady in waiting. Charlotte Swan, eight, was chosen as deputy princess.
All five winners were grilled by the three judges with questions about their personal lives, hobbies and interests in an interview-style setting. The girls will now be invited to visit and judge other carnivals and represent St Neots at such social events.
Spokesman for St Neots Carnival, Jean Searle said: "The event is always a success and this 60th anniversary of the choosing of the royal court was the best yet.
