God Save the Queen! Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guard!

We lucked out the day we went to Buckingham Palace, sort of. After seeing Big Ben, Parliament and Westminster Abbey we headed off to Buckingham Palace. We ended up arriving right at 11:30 am, the time for the changing of the guard. There was a mass of people there. I mean a zillion people so we couldn't see that much but I actually got some video and some cool pictures.

The video is iffy but it gives you an idea of what goes on. It looked like a lot of brouhaha for changing the staff but it is royalty. Maybe I am just jealous I am not the Queen of England. But I am a princess in my own mind! So there.

I was not that impressed with Buckingham Palace. It was smaller than I thought. I was even more disappointed that the Queen did not invite us in for tea. Whatever, Liz.

You can see Big Ben in the background!
