The Coldstream Guards, nicknamed "Lilywhites," were formed in the English Civil War when Oliver Cromwell gave Colonel George Monck permission to have his own regiment.

After Cromwell's death, Monck supported the monarchy and on January 1, 1660, crossed the River Tweed into England at the village of Coldstream and began a five-week march to London.

It is the oldest continuously-serving regiment in the British Army. 

Alongside serving as an elite infantry regiment is has a ceremonial role as protectors of the royal palaces, including Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.

The Regimental Band of the Coldstream Guards is one of the oldest and best-known military marching bands in the world.
