2018 Wynsome Mayde crowned at Duns Castle

20th July 2018

Every year and as part of the Duns Summer Festival, the pupils of Duns Primary School elect their Queen, and bestow upon her the title of Wynsome Mayde. The investiture is an elaborate occasion, conducted with great solemnity, and consists of a Coronation Ceremony with flower and sword bearers and a parade in a horse-drawn carriage accompanied by the Duns Pipe Band, the Reiver’s Party and a cavalcade of horses and riders. The tradition dates back to 1944 and is often held at Duns Castle.
