Royal Guards at London Palaces









The men you see in front of Buckingham Palace (and other locations in London as well as Windsor) are the Queen's Guard. As well as upholding the traditions of the past through their ceremonial duties, the Foot Guards also carry out operational duties in the UK and throughout the world as professional soldiers.

The Queen's Guards are all part of the Household Division who have guarded the Sovereign and the Royal Palaces since 1660.

The Household Division is made up of seven regiments of the British Army:

  • The Household Cavalry Regiment
    • The Life Guards
    • The Blues and Royals

  • Five Regiments of Foot Guards
    • The Grenadier Guards
    • The Coldstream Guards
    • The Scots Guards
    • The Irish Guards
    • The Welsh Guards
