Swedish Palace Guards - Svenska Högvakten
The Royal Guards, Högvakten, the Main Guard at the Stockholm Palace is carried out by units of the Swedish Armed Forces.
It is the King of Sweden's guard of honour and is responsible for the protection of the Royal Family. The Royal Guard is normally divided in two parts, the main guard stationed at the Royal Palace in Stockholm, and a smaller detachment at Drottningholm Palace.
The Royal Guard traces its history back to the early 16th Century, and the unit has continuously guarded the Royal Palace in Stockholm since 1523.
