    Is that a new uniform? The images I’ve seen of palace guards are quite different. And what does E R stand for?
    Nice shot, but I wish I knew more about the outfits these guys are wearing!
    Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/03/flying-high.html

      they must have different sets of uniform. ER stands for elizabetha regina – queen elizabeth in latin.

    Good title for the photo. I think the ‘guards’ may well be bored, but wearing the costumes is all about tradition. It’s what tourists expect and want to see.

    Are they holding umbrellas? Strange thing for a guard.

    Love the beautiful window in the background! So much prettier than my plastic & wood double-hungs.
