On the 1st November, 2016, His Excellency President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia was greeted to the United Kingdom by Her Britannic Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. After a ceremony at Horse Guards where the visiting President inspected his Honour Guard, the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guard, he was escorted down the Mall by the Blues and Royals and the Life Guards. Soldiers from 7th Company Coldstream Guard, Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards, and F Company Scots Guards lined the road as well, and in this video we see the Coldstreamers deploy for this role.

The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, which had previously fired a 41 gun salute, is also seen parading down the Mall returning to barracks.
