Simply the best: Changing the Guard pays musical tribute to Tina Turner

Watch: Welsh Guards pay musical tribute to Tina Turner.

Crowds lined the gates of Buckingham Palace for a special musical tribute during Friday's Changing the Guard.

Led by the Band of the Welsh Guards and 1st Battalion Welsh Guards Corps of Drums, they paid a musical tribute to rock queen Tina Tuner, by performing The Best.

The singer, who was behind other hits like What's Love Got To Do With It and Proud Mary, died at her home in Zurich, Switzerland, earlier this week, at the age of 83.

Changing the Guard takes place in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace at 11:00 and lasts about 30 minutes.

It is a ceremony that represents a formal handover of responsibilities, from the soldiers who were on duty at the Palace, known as the 'Old Guard', with the 'New Guard' who arrive after marching from Wellington Barracks.
