Queen thanks Yeomen of the Guard on 500th anniversary of Henry VII's death
More than 70 Yeomen - resplendent in their distinctive red and gold tunics, large white ruffled collars, scarlet stockings and flat brimmed black Tudor hats - gathered in Westminster Abbey in tribute to King Henry VII.
Henry VII created the Queen's Body Guard of the Yeomen of the Guard in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth.
To mark the 500th anniversary of his death, the Queen placed a posy at his tomb in the Abbey's Lady Chapel.
The monarch and the Duke of Edinburgh sat for a group photograph with the entire corps of Yeomen in the Nave, and met with them after the service.
