My trip to the UK, Buckingham Palace

We walked slowly along the block and gradually we could see the top of the palace of Buckingham Palace, there were some police officers along the way, taking videos and photos of them, they were all very happy and cooperative.

Buckingham Palace, located in the city of Westminster. Built over 75 years ago by George III, Buckingham Palace is a magnificent and majestic building that is over 300 years old. It is now the residence of Queen Elizabeth II and serves as both the Queen’s residence and office, as well as the administrative headquarters of the Royal Family. It is one of the few Royal Palaces still in use in the world today. It is now one of the famous attractions and is visited by countless visitors every day.

We took photos as we walked along a spacious sandy red road that ends at Buckingham Palace, which is also lined with Prince Charles’ palaces.

A row of handsome, high-waisted, long-legged men on horseback, dressed in red uniforms, stomped their hooves extra loudly, a sound that instantly gathered our eyes like a snap of the fingers. I was just about to take a picture when they turned a corner and were gone. It turned out that they were guards, off duty after a ceremonial change of shift.

According to Buckingham Palace royal tradition, when the Queen is at home, the red, yellow and blue Royal House Flag flies above Buckingham Palace, representing Her Majesty’s presence in the Palace. When the Queen is away, the Union Jack flies above Buckingham Palace. On the day we visited, the Union Jack was flying and the Queen was not at home. However, when the Queen is not at home, part of Buckingham Palace’s sumptuous State Rooms are open to visitors.

One of the highlights of our visit to Buckingham Palace is the Changing of the Guard ceremony, which we visited at the end of May and begins at 11.30pm sharp every day. The whole ceremony lasted 40 minutes and was watched by an almost overflowing crowd. When we arrived in front of Buckingham Palace, the Changing of the Guard ceremony was still going on, with a strong sense of ritual. The Guards are the true guardians of the Royal Family, and they are almost identical in height and stature, neat and tidy, and it is said that since the Royal Guard defeated Napoleon’s Praetorian Guard, when they put on the bearskin hats, a symbol of victory and honour, until now, this kind of service has never changed, and is still the same style as it was hundreds of years ago.

There are many people visiting Buckingham Palace and the gardens and paths in front of Buckingham Palace, which have not been extended since they were built as they are now. It still looks beautiful enough now. There were so many people visiting the palace that we took a few photos outside the palace, just for the sake of visiting Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace, a distant palace, was close enough for me to gaze out the door. Queen Elizabeth II, born on 21 April 1926, is the longest-reigning monarch in British history. She was involved in the war with her father during the Second World War and later sent her children to school as well, rather than staying at home to study.

The Queen faced difficulties that we cannot imagine. Everyone’s ceiling is different; the ceiling for the general public is education, housing, health care, retirement. We can only know a little about the Queen from the news and television, from media reports.
