Queens of Lesser Realms
Queen of the London Borough Enfield, Elaine Whyte.
"I am 28 and have lived down Green Street all my life. Every year as a child, me and my siblings would be excited to watch the carnival go past out road and see the carnival queen and all the floats. It would usually take between 20-30 minutes for the whole parade go past. This year, we didnít even realise it was going past till we heard the loud music whilst sat in the garden. We quickly walked down to see and all there was were three cars. The carnival queen and princesses all looked miserable and the lady who took our change was dressed like a seductive police woman! I couldn't believe it and how times have changed."
