Little Princess Elizabeth dances a jig
April 21, 1931
A "dainty" little princess who turned five-years-old today delighted crowds outside Windsor castle when she danced a celebratory Irish jig. The little girl is Princess Elizabeth, the elder daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York. She is third in line to the British throne. During "her happy day," Princess Elizabeth "unwrapped scores of presents," and she was cheered by the crowds who had gathered outside the castle to watch the guard mount.
