This was Chris one of my best friend being presented with the MBE for over 30 years service in The woman’s army corp. I met Chris when I myself served seven years in the Royal Signals Territorial Army. Queen Elizabeth with her guards . This picture was taken from a live video coverage of the event. The men in uniform are officers to protect the queen at these events and the beefeaters are the men in orange regal uniforms that do shifts to protect the perimeters of Buckingham palace.
