Meanwhile I’m presenting a few photos that I was lucky to take on the 3rd of December 2008.
A short explanation: before going to the UK I did some research on the internet and gathered lots of information of what it would be interesting to see in London. One of the things on the list was changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace; I even found a website where you can check their schedule - http://www.changing-the-guard.com/sched.htm and decided that we’d do this on the 3rd of December. But I never dreamt I’d see Betty! Anyway, it turned out that everyone was getting ready for the annual event – State Opening of Parliament*. There was no way I was going to miss that! So I joined the crowd and got my camera ready.
Believe it or not, but that's Her Majesty's husband Philip and the Queen herself, hiding behind him!
