Could it be in honor of a WWI event? Where Canada took a particular prominent part?

On 18th June 1917 that would have been during the battle of Passchendaele.

From The Guardian's obituary on the late Countess Mountbatten of Burma:

She was also colonel-in-chief Princess of Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (1974-2007) and vice lord-lieutenant of Kent (1984-2000).

That was the connection I was looking for but I couldn't find her listed as a Colonel-in-Chief of the Regiment at all. Found a list but didn't have her name on it.

Passhendeale didn't start until the 31st July though.

Something to do with WWI makes sense but not Passchendaele.

Let us hope that the coming restoration of the palace will also include an upgrade of worn-out interior!


They came from the Brighton Pavilion when QV shut it and needed fixtures for the BP addition. They are quite old and valuable.

According to Royal Central, the honour is in commemoration of Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation, which happens this July 1. The regiment will be mounting the guard every day from June 18 until July 3.

Thanks.
That's the marvelous thing about the TRF, there are always someone in the know.

That makes sense and Charles and Camilla are visiting Canada from the 29th June to fit in with that event as well.

I know that the Aussies have stood guard at times like the 100th of Anzac Day (with some Kiwis of course) and I seem to remember either in January or May 2000 (January was the 100th anniversary of Federation and May was the 100th anniversary of the first parliament actually sitting - opened by HRH The Duke of Cornwall and York - later George V.) To add some more to that date - 9th May - in 1927 the first Australian Parliament House was opened by HRH The Duke of York and then in 1988 new Parliament House was opened by HM The Queen on the same date - and many Aussies don't know the significance of that date at all.

That is what I love about TRF as well.

The funny thing is that as a Canadian I am well aware of Canada 150 (and spent a good part of the past week stuffing Canada 150 flags into envelopes as a part of a marketing campaign my company is doing), yet it didn't occur to me at all that that was why the Princess Patricia battalion was partaking in the standing of the guard until I saw the article on Royal Central's twitter this morning.

History made with first woman to captain Queen's guard
When Captain Megan Couto calls out her oh-so-familiar drill commands on Monday morning, she will make history.

Great achievement!

A side question: the last picture shows a doube gilded monogram at the gates of Buckingham Palace, I suppose the ones leading to the Cour. Whose monogram is it? George V ?

How proud this young lady must be to achieve such a high position in HM's Guards. What an accomplishment and honor this is.

Congratulations and may you obtain all your dreams and goals..

The monogram looks like Queen Victoria's to me: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F...at_Britain.svg

I assume the Monogram is that of George V, during whose Reign the Gates were created as part of the programme of works creating the Victoria memorial [1911] and re-fronting the Palace [1913].

Buckingham Palace is hosting a display of Diana Princess of Wales personal effects which were partly chosen by her 2 sons.
