Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace

A friend and I were lucky that we arrived just in time for the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. We really didn’t plan to watch one but I guess, it was our lucky day. The sky was blue, too! And as expected, there were flocks of tourists at Buckingham Palace ground. At the entrance, everyone wanted to take a selfie with the guard and his horse – me included. ๐Ÿ˜€
