The two junior attendants were chosen on Friday night, and the prince and princess on Sunday afternoon.

Eve Dawson, and Bethany Cuff, both 13, were picked from 19 junior attendant contenders at the Cottage pub.

The two are friends through being fellow Cromer Academy students and used to go horseriding together.

Eve from Oliver Court off Cromwell Road, Cromer said she was 'shocked' to win, but it was the 'best feeling ever.'

Bethany, from Overstrand, enjoys walking, badminton and experimenting with hair and make-up - so was looking forward to being pampered for her carnival appearances later in the summer.
