  Palace Guard
by J.I.M

The Changing of the Guard, or Guard Mounting as it's also called, is a popular attraction for tourists in London. The guards of Buckingham Palace work in shifts, and the changing of the guard consists of the new shift marching and taking the place of the old shift.
The change is accompanied by music being played by a guards band, who play traditional marching tunes, but also occasionally play well-known pop songs!
