High fashion meets high hopes
A cross-section of Bermudian society gathered yesterday morning to hear Acting Governor Ginny Ferson deliver the 2016 Throne Speech.
Politicians, judges and schoolchildren were among those present in the south parking lot of Sessions House, as Parliament convened after the summer break.
MPs from the One Bermuda Alliance and the Progressive Labour Party looked rested as they walked single-file down the steps from the House of Assembly.
Michael Dunkley, the Premier, and David Burt, the Acting Opposition Leader, led their respective parties to the seated white tents to hear Ms Ferson’s speech.
The Throne Speech is known for its pageantry as well as its social policies, and this year didn’t disappoint — with plenty of eye-catching, high-fashion hats and outfits on show.
