Adelaide's Royalty

Last Thursday saw the crowning of the 2009 Christmas Pageant's King and Queen; Matt Nolis and Marie Antoniou.

It has been tradition since 1940 to have a Pageant Queen, originally chosen from the staff of John Martins who ran the pageant. Since 1996 when SA's Credit Unions became sponsors of the event, there has been a Queen and six Princesses selected from staff of the 6 Credit Unions.

This year men have been included; we now additionally have a King and five Princes.
