The Royal Horseguards originated as part of the Parliamentary Army which fought against King Charles I and was to be disbanded in 1660. The order was never carried out and on 26 January, 1661, it became part of the Royal establishment. The unit played a pivotal role in the battle of Warburg (1760) when it joined with the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th and the 7th Dragoon Guards, the 1st, 2nd, and 6th Dragoons, and the 7th, 10th and 11th Hussars in driving more than 20,000 French troops off the battlefield field. It is now responsible for protecting the Royal family, Buckingham Palace, as well as other royal residences.
