    Hi, Great photos – we’re looking for any footage of our 10 y.o. daughter and her friend presenting the Queen with flowers in Federation Square, at the tram end of the red carpet. Can you help or suggest where else we could try? There were so many cameras there that we know someone must have some photos or video.
    Regards,
    Jim and Carolyn-Anne Boyd.

    • Hi there, thanks for the message. How nice to hear that your daughter and her friend were able to present the queen with flowers during her visit. Maybe you can try the local media and see what kind of photos they might have.
      Other than that, perhaps keep searching periodically on google images. Good luck!
