But there are lots of other people, both alive and dead that need to be guarded. And Guards need rest breaks. So I found a few other pretty showy guards during changing ceremonies.
So there is the Swiss Guard at the Vatican. The guards for Korean Palace as well as the Bangkok Royal Palace.

Personally I love the pom poms on the shoes of the Greek Soldiers when changing the guards at the Greek Parliament Building and Tomb of the Unknown. Pom poms on soldier's shoes. Hmmmmm. And tights.......... Stockholm's Royal Palace looks pretty average when compared to Pom Pomed shoes, assorted robes, striped pantiloons, just all sorts of ways to guard both the quick and the dead.
