As we saw at Margaret Thatcher's funeral recently, nobody does a state occasion quite like the British, and the horses of the Household Cavalry and King's Troop are always guaranteed to please the crowds.

Callum Watkinson has been for a look around the centre where the horses go through their basic training.
A 3-year-old with a rare condition which has stopped her developing properly has been put on a special diet by doctors - with remarkable results.
Up until now Fields Taylor from Asfordby in Leicestershire has not had the energy to walk or talk but that is all starting to change after introducing more fat into her diet. Jane Hesketh reports.
Dieticians at the Leicester Royal Infirmary have prescribed a Ketogenic diet for three-year-old Fields Taylor which is high in fats and low in carbohydrates and sugar.
It works by forcing the brain to use fat, rather than glucose as its main source of energy.
Fields' parents, Stevie and David, have noticed a difference in her in the 3 weeks she has been on the diet. They say:
"She is much brighter and more alert. She has more energy and is more physical. She's moving around independently of us, which is great"
The family are hoping to raise £5,000 to travel to Texas and meet the doctor who discovered the syndrome. They want to find out more about it so they can help their daughter lead a normal life
The parents of a 3-year-old girl from Leicestershire who is unable to walk or talk say she's made real improvements since being put on a high fat diet.
Fields Taylor from Asfordby near Melton Mowbray has an extremely rare condition called Glut 1 Deficiency. Only 500 people in the world have been diagnosed with it.
It means her brain is starved of energy because her body can't produce the glucose it needs to grow and develop.
