P: British Pathé. UK / Fr 1914

“King stands on small platform with sons Prince of Wales (Duke of Windsor, Prince Edward), Prince Albert (Duke of York and later King George VI) and a moustachioed official; soldiers go past saluting. CU side view Royals; a small Military band playing. (…)
Lord Mayor stands by King’s open coach on London street; speaking to him and Queen Mary (and Princess Royal / Princess Mary who is also in the coach) and handing him a large ceremonial sword. The King touches it and speaks to the Mayor who steps backwards and bows, still holding the sword. The coach drives off and officials all put their hats back on.”
