The sensational Knights of Royal England returned to the magnificent setting of Linlithgow Palace.
One lance shattered with the impact
After a spot of jousting the knights started showing off……….
And then they gave their horses a rest and fought on their feet in the rain
With a lot of silliness surely designed to impress the warring 6-year old boys in the crowd and not the wannabe princesses.
Do boys ever grow up??
And then the one female member of the troupe was put in a sack and dragged round the field by a knight gone wild
The knights were having a lot of fun. I’m glad I didn’t own any 5-year old boys with swords, as they were having their heads filled with sneaky moves.
A final triumphant ride to the applause of the crowds who weren’t put off by the annoying rain
