Bathed in the light from the full moon, Windsor Castle rises majestically on the hill. On the occasion of the Queen’s Coronation, Mary and Billy received a formal invitation to the Coronation Ball at the Castle. It was l953. They looked entrancing in their matching purple velveteen ensembles. This rare violet eye, black hair Mary looks especially enchanting in purple. The trumpets sounded, the guns of the Tower were shot off, and her Majesty took her seat at the throne. Princes and princesses put on their coronets and crowns. It was an evening like none other.
