Anti-Brexit protesters gather in Parliament Sq ahead of rally

Hundreds of people gather in Parliament Square in London in anticipation of the arrival of hundreds of thousands of pro-Europeans from across Britain marching through London calling for another referendum on EU membership. The protesters are expected to arrive after making their way from Hyde Park to the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, London. The protest — set to be one of the largest in the capital in decades — comes after EU leaders this week granted a delay to Brexit, prompting Prime Minister Theresa May to make a renewed bid to win MPs’ backing for her divorce deal.

The moment the Queen met a spooky skeleton horse

As a monarch, you are asked to do a wide variety of things – including inspecting a horse painted to look like a skeleton.

That was the task that befell Britain’s Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday (October 24) at the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment’s barracks in London’s Hyde Park.

A horse expert through her ownership of racing horses, the Queen showed a keen interest in the bone structure that had been painted on the horse to help teach soldiers about the anatomy of the creatures.

The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment take part in ceremonial occasions in the UK, including Trooping the Colour and the State Opening of Parliament.
