The royal Guard pulls up to the parade and a change of guard at Amalienborg Palace, her Majesty, Queen Margrethe the second, palace in Copenhagen.
In honor of the occasion – the first January 2011, it happens in Galla why the band also participates.
For everyday use black uniforms jackets are used, but when the Guard is Gala then they use red jackets.
This particular day, many people from Copenhagen will meet at Amalienborg palace square to watch the Changing of the Guard, many have champagne and cake with wreaths wich are enjoyed with friends and acquaintances.
We in my circle of friends will meet afterwards at Nyhavn to eat lunch together at one of the many cozy inns in Nyhavn.
Difficult lighting conditions, full sunlight on Crown Prince’s palace, as seen in the background, while the courtyard is in full shade … But I think the shot was successful.
