Ceremony of the Keys

  • 1 Ceremony of the Keys

    Церемония передачи ключей. Имеется в виду ежедневная церемония, когда старший страж (the Chief Yeoman Warder) и его эскорт закрывают ворота лондонского Тауэра в 10 часов вечера. На обратном пути к ним обращается караульный со словами: «Стой, кто идёт?». Главный привратник отвечает: «Ключи». Вопрос караульного: «Чьи ключи?». «Ключи королевы Елизаветы», — отвечает привратник. Потом часовой берёт на караул, а старший страж, снимая свой головной убор, восклицает: «Господь, храни королеву Елизавету!», на что все присутствующие отвечают «Аминь!». После этой церемонии ключи оставляют в Queen's House, внутри Тауэра.
