December 29, 1902, was a Monday. The morning of the Main Procession was cold, but sunny. At 11,30 the Viceroy and Lady Curzon arrived at the Delhi station to wait for the Duke and the Duchess of Connaught, Edward VII’s brother and his wife, who was there as the King’s representative. They arrived 15 minutes later and headed with the Curzons to Queen’s road on their assigned elephants.
