Close-up of a mounted Life Guard of the Household Cavalry on guard at Horse Guards, Whitehall, London.

The Household Cavalry was formed as a royal bodyguard in 1661 under the direct order of King Charles II and now consists of the two senior regiments of the British Army The Life Guards and the Blues and Royals.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Remenber Me' and a special thank you to Effrossini (leontari) for his much appreciated UA Grin

Best wishes,
