Series overview


This six-part-series follows the oldest and most recognisable regiment of the British Army, The Household Cavalry, in a year of dramatic change. From riding horses at the Royal Wedding, to riding tanks across the Middle East, our cameras were allowed inside to see what life is really like for the soldiers, from the newest recruits to the most decorated officers. 


Episode 2


We go behind the scenes of the wedding of the year, as Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle in front of the eyes of the world.


Cameras go behind the scenes as the Prince’s own former regiment prepare for a starring role in the big day.


Corporal of Horse, Frankie O’Leary, served on the frontline with Prince Harry in Afghanistan. He must now rally his troop to ensure their procession is flawless for his former boss’ wedding.


We also see the Household Cavalry’s very own Changing of the Guard as their new Commanding Officer gets ready to take the reins. Lt Colonel Paddy Williams is more comfortable riding tanks on the battlefield to riding horses.


We follow Paddy as he has to train to become good enough to lead the regiment. Then from the highest officer, to the newest recruits, we see how the trainees are forming friendships with their horses, and learning to master the art of jumping.
