For over 50 years Dunbar has elected an annual Civic Queen, with the inaugural ‘Carnival’ Queen crowned in 1970. The role of Carnival Queen has evolved over the years into what is now the Civic Queen and Royal Court. To select the Civic Queen and Royal Court, all names of primary 2 and primary 7 year groups in Dunbar are invited to be put into a draw at the primary school.

The royal Court selection will happen the week beginning 18 March. We are calling all community members of P2 and P7 ages who want to be included in the draw to sign up on our Google Form by the end of 18th March 2024. If you would like more information about the process, please email before the draw closes.

Dunbar Primary School pupils have been contacted separately so please check your email for information if you have a P2 or P7 pupil for information.

If you are chosen in the random selection, we will contact your parents of carers directly. If you have not been contacted, all information provided will be deleted by 22nd March 2024.

We wish everyone taking part the best of luck and we look forward to announcing our Royal Court for 2024 in the coming weeks.

Here are the lovely children who are in the Royal Court in 2023:

  • Civic Queen: Makayla Blyth
  • Queen’s Consort: Cameron Beckett
  • Queen’s attendants  Alaska Allan and Ellen Buchanan
  • Flower girls: Rosie Lindsay and Lillie Gullan
