The Household Cavalry serve as the Queen's official bodyguard and is part of the Household Division. It is made up of the two most senior regiments of the British Army, namely the Blues and Royals and the Life Guards.

Notable members include Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and his brother Prince Harry, who were both members of the Blues and Royals, and singer James Blunt, who served in the Life Guards.

Also making up the Household Division, along with the Household Cavalry, is the Queens Guards.

The Queens Guards are charged with protecting the monarch's residences in London as well as Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

All seven regiments of the Household Division predate the English Restoration in 1660 and have been guarding the sovereign's palaces since the reign of King Charles II.

Ceremonial duties include the Trooping the Colour, marching on Remembrance Sunday and providing a guard for the Queen's Birthday Parade and the State Opening of Parliament.

Among the most notable of the regiment's battle honours is the Battle of Waterloo, where 2,000 cavalrymen prevented about 15,000 French infantry from achieving a flanking manoeuvre against Wellington's forces.
