Today, the funeral of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin who died this month is being held in the American city of Detriot.

She grew up in the city and she paid tribute to Detriot a countless number of times as her career took her to a lot of high places.

She said once in an interview that her father, who was once a pastor in the same church that said she would sing for Kings and Queens.

That became true. Aretha, nicknamed the Queen of Soul, went on to sing for the high and mighty in the society while still paying her due to humble beginnings.

As her final funeral rite is being held, the British Monarchy paid a special tribute to the Queen of Soul.

As it’s a normal occurrence on the grounds of the Buckingham Palace, the Changing of the Guard is held, ostensibly to bring new guards to take up positions and retire their colleagues to rest their legs.

A military ceremony is held for the changing of the guard.

Normally the band plays normal tunes as the new guards march in to take up positions.

Today’s Changing of the Guard ceremony had more soul.

The Band of the Welsh Guards, famous for their red tunics and bearskin, performed a tribute to Aretha Franklin during the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace this morning.

The Welsh Guards played a version of Aretha Franklin’s 1967 hit “R-E-S-P-E-C-T”.

RIP Aretha…
