Bath youngsters' chance to be a King, or Queen, for a day
Most little girls want to be a princess. And there are plenty of boys who wouldn't mind playing king.
So children have been leaping at the chance to become a royal for the day at an exhibition in Bath.
The Jubilee film, theatre and TV costume event at the Assembly Rooms allows youngsters to dress up as monarchs, with a range of handmade replica royal costumes on hand.
They can then parade through the building in a king's cloak and crown or practise walking down the aisle in a replica of the Queen Mother's wedding dress.

The miniature outfits have been hand-made by Bath-based fashion professional Heather Gillard, who creates bridal gowns for women but who was once wardrobe mistress for a youth theatre company in the city.
Youngsters can also have their photographs taken looking through a seaside-style picture board painted with the outfits of King Henry VIII and one of his many wives.
It is all part of the Bath and North East Somerset Council fashion exhibition in commemoration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year.
Jubilee: Dressing the Monarchy on Stage and Screen runs until next Sunday and features more than 50 costumes from theatre, TV and film productions, including The King's Speech and The Queen.
Council cabinet member Councillor Cherry Beath (Lib Dem, Combe Down) said: "This is a great way to keep the children entertained over the summer holidays and to bring history to life.
"It is a really excellent exhibition in this Diamond Jubilee year and the council encourages people of all ages to take a look, as there's something for everyone."
Entry to the exhibition is free when buying a ticket for the Fashion Museum. Discovery Card holders and National Trust members can get into the museum for free.
