Royal Guard by Balakov Royal Guard by Balakov
Despite not paying much attention to current affairs I have noticed that Britain appears to be in the midst of celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubliee.

I think this photo evokes the spirit of the celebrations so far.

If you're reading this Your Majesty, look how much cooler your guards would look in Emperors' Royal Guard outfits.

Mandalorians misused... their Honor was washed out with the rain, down the drain...

Ah I like this one so much, a great idea! I also really liked your message to the Queen if she were to read this, I agree...the guards would look so elaborate like this!

The guard would fit nicely in that carnival, indeed.

BTW, I'm afraid her majesty' Royal artillery made the same marksman academy of stormtroopers.
They fired a lot to the Queen across the river and not a single hit...

we actually qualify as having freak weather because of our location.
Actually, once the was a hurricane when the weather people were positive it would just be light wind :iconfacepalmplz:
