Changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace in August

We are visiting London mid to late August this year and cannot find anywhere the dates for changing of the guards. Does it take place in August? Maybe the Queen is not in residence and it doesn't happen. Please help! Many thanks.

It appears to be a website issue, it is on, I suggest you read the reviews in here first to see if you'd still want to spend best part of a whole morning to see some some soldiers march by, that's if you do see them because of the crowds.

If you still do, search in here for "horseguards" as that's a better place in London to see it without the crowds and jostling, and if you are going to Windsor pick a day it's on there and again see it without crowds.

It will definitely be on in August. The website could be more informative I agree.
