A senior state trumpeter, from Wales, taking part in the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has promised his team will perform like they are the best in the world.
The gold-jacketed brass players from the Band of the Household Cavalry are regulars at major state occasions where the Queen is present, as well as at national events and anniversaries.
Trumpet Major Matthew Screen told the Press Association he will be playing along with five others in the organ loft during the ceremony at St George's Chapel in Windsor on May 19.
The 44-year-old, from Blackwood, near Newport, South Wales has completed a tour of Afghanistan and been deployed to Bosnia.
Unable to reveal what the melodic blasts played at the wedding will be, Trumpet Major Screen, who has been in the military for 27 years, said all he can say is that they will be fanfares.
This will include the Royal Salute for the entrance of the Queen and another for the arrival of the bride, Ms Markle.
Trumpet Major Screen said over his time with the state trumpeters since joining them in 1995, he has played for prominent individuals on state visits, as well as Tina Turner and Nelson Mandela.
He has also played at events including Euro 1996, the London 2012 Olympics, the Eurovision Song Contest and appeared on Britain's Got Talent.
Since he was a child Trumpet Major Screen said he can remember seeing the state trumpeters on television and deciding then that he wanted to join their ranks
