The Guards have been carrying out their duty of guarding the sovereign since 1660.
The ceremony of Changing the Guard, which lasts about half an hour, is one of the most popular sights for tourists. It takes place daily at Buckingham Palace (on alternate days from mid-August to March), and daily at Windsor Castle while the Queen is in residence there.
The mounted Guard of the Household Cavalry is ceremonially changed daily at Whitehall.
Many of Britain's regular ceremonials are centred around the monarchy. Trooping the Colour, held early in June to celebrate the Queen's official birthday, is an elaborate, colourful event carried out by the sovereign's personal troops on Horse Guards Parade. After inspecting her troops, the Queen watches a display of marching to the music of massed bands.
