Queen's band prepares to take Basel by storm

The Blues and Royals Band is part of the British Queen's Household Cavalry. Its main job is to play at ceremonial occasions such as the Trooping the Colour and Changing the Guard at Windsor Castle. For the first time, the band is to appear at the Basel Tattoo, which takes place in July. The Blues and Royals will be bringing their 30 horses with them. Rehearsals are already underway in London.
