  1. The fence is awesome! I love the gold on it, and it makes it totally royal. But what is a Guard Museum?

  6. Ah yes, reminiscent of my visits to Buckingham Palace. Thank you for reviving the memories. Did you get to see all the magnificent carriages and the State Coach used by the Queen? One of my best memories was being in the throne room waiting to be knighted ... it was of course, empty at the time!!!

  11. Too cool...it makes me wonder if the queen has gazed at all those various sculptures till she knows where each unicorn might be. I also noticed another photographer with a unipod...so I dare say there were lots of other cameras clicking away when you were there. Thanks for sharing!

    Looking at the helmets of the bobbies, it reminds me that the helmets of the Newfoundland Constabulary are rather alike.
