Description

These people are ready and waiting for Queen and Duke to pass by, somewhere along the route of the Royal Progress through Wagga Wagga.
The lady on the left has her hand on her camera bag, ready to pull it out quickly; the boy next to her is waiting to unfurl his Australian flag; a little girl has her "Caltex Periscope" in hand and another lady is resting, what is possibly a portable food container (like an esky), on the arm of her neighbour's wheelchair.
