The Queen's Guards at Buckingham Palace in London are famous for their elaborate "changing of the guard" -- watched daily by tourists from around the world. But, did you know... they also have a band? Yes indeed. The band accompanies the changing of the guard and often plays popular music. Not too long ago they did a medley of Star Trek themes

Actually, playing popular music is not unusual. According to the official site for the Royal Family, "The handover is accompanied by a Guards band. The music played ranges from traditional military marches to songs from films and musicals and even familiar pop songs." Nonetheless... my geeky side is happily amused! Enjoy!
