Royal Palace Guard, cavalry march

Royal Palace Guard, cavalry march

I have a short video clip of this very impressive military formation (see below), courtesy of my husband. There is some construction noise at the beginning, but it gets drowned out by their music as they get closer. We found out about this quite by chance while talking to the guard on duty. They do this only once a week, so we were definitely in the right place at the right time.

Great POV to photograph this orderly march. Four white horses in the front row and the rest are brown. Great timing to get the arms of the band leader raised high. V

What a great sight this mounted brass band, I like the way the trumpets are pointed in different directions. An impressive sound too, especially those kettle drums. "V"
