Respect from One Queen to Another

Buckingham Palace paid tribute to a queen other than Queen Elizabeth today.

The Band of the Welsh Guards played the Queen of Soul's hit "Respect" at this morning's Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.  It's the time when one set of Queen Elizabeth's guards hand over the watch protecting the palace to a new set of guards.

According to the Daily Mail, the Army tweeted a video and sent these words to Aretha Franklin's family:  "Respect for others underpins all we do in the @BritishArmy so it was no surprise that the @WelshGuardsBand paid tribute to musical icon and inspiration #ArethaFranklin at Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace today."
