Madrid, Spain (3) – Royal Guards
Enroute to Plaza Mayor, we came across a large entourage of Royal Guards at the “Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores y de Cooperacion” building (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation). They were escorting dignitaries to the Royal Palace. I did get a photo of an individual getting into the carriage but after some research, I could not determine who she was.
There were a number of troops coming and going from the Government Building to Palacio Real via Plaza Mayor.
I have been unsuccessful in getting information regarding the different coloured uniforms. There are four different uniforms with different coloured horses.

When we reached Mayor Plaza, a different troop was passing through heading to the government building
