The changing of guard at the royal palace in Madrid usually brings in several hundreds of locals as well as tourists every first Wednesday of the month. This time there were special guests at the event. For the first time, T.R.H.s Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Asturias participated in this grand event. At twelve o’clock the royal couple joined the crowds outside of the royal palace to watch the event. During the hour-long parade, a total of 300 royal guards and 80 horses were involved.
