The iconic Changing of the Guard ceremony has been halted until further notice.

The historic ceremony that usually takes place regularly in the summer months, has been called off because of the coronavirus pandemic. The cancellation applies for all three locations it usually takes place at: Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace and Windsor Castle.

Also known as the Guard Mounting, the ceremony is an absolute magnet for tourists, although admittedly there aren't many of them in London right now.

For all those wondering when they could next see those red tunics and bearskin hats out on display, the ceremony will be back up and running 'when appropriate'.
