The Changing of the Guard in London takes place at a number of venues daily
Also once a year on the Queen's Official birthday (like Paddington Bear she ha two birthdays every year) there is the Trooping of the Colour Parade on the second Saturday in June. The Colour (regimental flag) of one of the five regiments of foot guards is paraded to the sound of massed bands, hundreds of colourful soldiers are on the parade ground, and the Queen takes the salute. There are various rehearsals which enable you to see the thing much better than the real thing, when places are reserved only for the "good and the great"
