The Queen’s Guards: A Year in Service TV Series Overview (2022)


Documentary following members of the Coldstream Guards, the oldest regiment in the British Army.


On the eve of Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Year, the British Army granted Channel 5 privileged access to the soldiers and officers of the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards during 2020 and 2021. Their cameras have captured a unique insight into what life is like in the oldest continuously serving regiment in the British Army.

Over five episodes viewers follow and get to know recruits, guardsmen and officers, throughout their toughest year on record, as they fulfil their ceremonial duties from Wellington Barracks to Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and at some of the biggest Royal events of the last decade.

The series follows aspiring trainee guardsmen at the Army’s Infantry Training Centre in Catterick, where all infantry soldiers undergo the training that will see them become some of the best infanteers in the world.

Officer Cadets at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst are also followed through their training, where they will learn to become the leaders of tomorrow, before commissioning.
