service as a bodyguard to the Sovereign, and made
up of the British Army’s two most senior regiments,
the Household Cavalry sits at the very heart of the cultural and military heritage of Britain. The Regiment’s rich history stretches back
to 1660, from descendants of King Charles II’s Life
Guards and the Earl of Oxford’s ‘Blues’. Since then
it has forged a tradition, ethos and reputation for
excellence and professionalism, whether it is for
State Ceremonial duties, or the British Army's operational requirements.
Every Household Cavalry soldier is first and
foremost a fighting soldier, and uniquely in the
British Army, the Household Cavalry use their
qualities to excellent effect by combining their role
in armoured fighting vehicles with the mounted
State Ceremonial role. It is this flexibility that has
allowed us to remain at the forefront of the combat
operations of today, whilst still maintaining the
highest standards and strong traditions of the past.

The Royal Guards are very well dressed and well disciplined. Nice to click some photographs with them. Would be great if you can sync with the timing of the change of guards, that's very nice to watch. It goes till the palace.
Quieter guard change than Buckingham palace but more fun with the Horses. Top tip watch from junction of The Mall and Horse Guard Parade to see the arrival of new guard then follow to parade ground for change. Remember the whole thing takes half hour.
