The two youngsters were chosen by carnival queen Mollie Gallon and attendant Niamh Craske at a Medieval-themed party organised by the Open Youth Trust, which runs Sheringham Youth Zone.

Held at the town community centre, the event featured crown-making, sword fighting and dragon slaying, with youngsters also setting off on a quest to find the queen’s stolen crown.

Youth leader Izzie Porter said organisers aimed to encourage youngsters’ creativity.

“We wanted to steer away from the beauty pageant side of things and have something more fun and interactive,” she added.

Mollyanne and Chester were presented with Starlings toy shop gift vouchers and family tickets for a trip on the North Norfolk Railway’s Cowhand Express carnival special.
