Changing the Guard

Outside Buckingham Palace this morning to watch the Changing of the Guard.
We couldn't get near to the railings, as the crowds were enormous, but we saw the bands march past.
We also went to the top of the Wellington Arch and were spot on time to see the cavalry march towards us. They then went right through the middle of the arch and out the other side.
Pic three is the view directly above us of the statue on top of the arch. It is the largest bronze sculpture in Europe and features the Angel of Peace descending on a four horsed chariot of war.
