As she's already 18 I rather think she won't, but we won't find out for sure, unless she talks about it

Today, May 4, mother and daughter attended the 6th 'City of Sevilla' International Carriage Contest on the occasion of the inauguration of the Feria de Abril fair in Sevilla:

What a beautiful traditional white lace mantilla on Doña Victoria Federica!

I can imagine that this tradition is somewhat similar to the British tradition of the May Queen crowning (though with the maypoles). It was lovely to see Victoria Federica in the mantilla.

The "queen of the April fair" is a silly expression of Hola, it does not exist.

Every year during the April Fair in Sevilla there is an exhibition of horse carriages. The event has a godmother who makes the parade in the horse carriage, and wears "mantilla". Normally the godmothers do not have much relevance, they are usually famous women but a bit of second line or they are wives of famous men, for example of bullfighters.

I believe it is a custom that is broader than just the Sevilla April fair? In Portugal my sister-in-law was once asked to be the godmother of the annual party in the village where her family is originally from.
