We sincerely hope to see you as principle guest at a Garden Party or Investiture.
A common misconception is that the Yeoman Warders or Yeomen of the Guard (In Extraordinary) and The Yeomen of the Queen's Body Guard of the Yeomen of the Guard are one and the same...are not.
Our Headquarters is at St James's Palace and although honorary members of the Yeoman Warder's Bar we have no duties at The Tower of London.
Most of our Yeomen have a full time second career outside of The Body Guard and all look forward to the summons to duty.
By the 15th century however, their role had been extended in such a way that the protection of the sovereign was no longer their first first positive mention of a royal guard in English history is found in the records of Edward Is reign (12721307), where the description occurs Crossbow men of the Household.
Find more about that toast (which is meant as a tribute not an insult) on the Yeoman Warders' website or see our link to pages within this website.
The Yeomen Warders of which anything is known is that of the Sergeants-at-Arms who were mounted guards raised by Richard 1 in 1191.
On Ceremonial occasion they wear exactly the same uniform as the Yeomen of the Queen's Body Guard, less the shoulder belt.
We have the greatest respect for each other, indeed one of our ranks was once a Yeoman Warder, but it's most annoying when articles in the most prestigious of newspapers or on TV still get the two Corps mixed up. Gentlemen, we drink to your health and "May you never die a Yeoman Warder".
Nothing is actually known of this guard beyond the fact that it had a very short existence, as it is not mentioned again, and the long-bow was then becoming the national weapon, being much quicker in performance.
