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.

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 ?

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.

I buy the geese argument - we have them here and they are a huge problem in otherwise lovely municipal green spaces. I've seen successful broods of twenty goslings! The random Canada goose can create 4.5 pounds of excrement per hour and thrives on lawns. Said excrement is sticky as well as voluminous. It's a drag when you find it in that lovely spot your family has always held their annual picnic in the grass! As with all international migratory birds, they are protected here in the US. So there are no easy answers about how to control them.
Swans being highly aggressive and territorial sound like a good passive response.
But it would be a let down to see decoys in the Palace pond!

Buckingham Palace

It should also be noted that the Canadian goose is also evil. So even if their poop wasn't an issue, their attitude is good reason to want to deter them from taking up residence.

Odd never took geese for being scared if swans. Been to plenty of duck ponds to feed birds, and see geese and swans as well as ducks

But yes geese are horribly noisy and messy. Though I find them far less aggressive then some swans.

An Uber driver terror suspect arrested outside Buckingham Palace had originally headed for Windsor Castle but his SatNav sent him to a pub of the same name instead.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 26, was taken into custody after allegedly driving a blue Toyota Prius at a marked police car outside the Palace last Friday.

Police said the suspect reached for a 4ft-long samurai sword and yelled "Allahu Akbar" as he was tackled by officers and sprayed with CS gas.
