An English tradition returned Monday.

For the first time since March 2020, the ceremonial changing of the guard ceremony took place at Buckingham Palace.

The Royal Family said the Band of the Coldstream Guards and the Band of the Scots Guard performed a special tribute to the delegation representing the country in the Paralympics, which begins Tuesday.

The ceremony is seen by millions each year at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, according to the Royal Family. Hundreds of spectators were on hand to witness its return Monday.
