Queen elizabeth ii marked the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the United States with a special tribute to the house.
On Saturday September 11, the Band of the Welsh Guards at Windsor Castle, their home since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, performed the US national anthem.
Hundreds of people attended the show in a special Changing of the Guard ceremony, although the Queen herself was not present. After the musicians finished playing, spectators rose for a minute of silence to honor the nearly 3,000 victims of the deadliest terrorist attacks in history.
“We are incredibly grateful for the gesture of Her Majesty The Queen”, special guest and acting Ambassador of the United States Philip T. Reeker later told the press. “The performance of our national anthem today at the Changing of the Guard represents friendship, solidarity between our two countries,” adding: “I think it has shown that the special relationship remains so crucial for all of us. “
