    SOUND EFFECTS. SV Queen Elizabeth II speaks:- "This parade originates in an event which is very near to us all, whereby on the death of the King, my father it falls to me, as Sovereign, to assume the Colonelcy-in-Chief of all 5 Regiments comprising the Brigade of Guards, and in consequence to relinquish the Colonelcy of its Senior Regiment. I know that I cannot do better than to follow in his footsteps, for nobody was more proud of his foot guards than the King, no-one more vigilant to support their interests and protect their traditional privileges."

    SV Queen Elizabeth II continues:- "The regiment has not changed, it is only those who stand in its ranks, So too in my turn I take leave of the Regiment of which I have been proud to be Colonel. May God Bless you all."
