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.
