The Guard which mounts at Buckingham Palace is called The Queen’s Guard and is divided into two Detachments: the Buckingham Palace, and the St. James’s Palace Detachment. These guard duties are normally provided by a battalion of the Household Division and occasionally by other infantry battalions or other units.
