    Background: Princess Margaret was again lucky with the weather today as her visit to Georgetown came to a close. Although there was a deluge soon after 8 o'clock this morning in the skies cleared for a march past and procession.

    Her day began with a ceremonial drive through the capital, then she watched an informal and at times unintentionally funny procession of floats illustrating all aspects of British Guiana life.

    A highlight of the procession was the champion steel bands - so, much a part of Guiana native music.

    Her Royal Highness saw the ceremony of Trooping the Colour. She watched the parade fro a covered dais opposite the site of the cultural centre which it is hoped to build in the heart of the city, in the area which was swept by a disastrous fire in 1945.

    During the day the Princess wore a lemon-coloured silk dress which showed signs of wilting in the oppressive heat.
