She reigned from the Queen’s Box next to the stage and entertain visiting dignitaries from other events being held that night in the City and her many subjects attending the ball. Stuart Math edited a video honoring our Lady.

And, she performed her Splanky dance with both Ryan Francois AND John Dokes – an iconic performance.
