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
