Hall of Fame: Mr. Hunter and the Queen's Guard

One bonus feature of the Buckingham Palace State Rooms tour: 
a pair of Queen's Guardsmen who stood at the ready to pose for friendly photos with us tourists.  The guard I met was curious to hear Mr. Hunter's story.  And Mr. Hunter was so tickled to have a Queen's Guard photo-op.

This particular guard is a member of the Coldstream Guards,
as identified by the grouping of his buttons and the garter star badge on his collar.
See more about the Queen's Guards on the British Monarchy site.

Two young women try on the Queen's Guard hats.

Another tourist holds the hat.
