Tharon, just wanted to let you know that the Royal Guard are still on the Episode II DVD. The problem you're having is size. In the theatre they would be easily noticeable behind the group on the balcony, but on a smaller TV they are nearly impossible to see. If you watch by Bail Organa's left shoulder you will see one guard, but you will only see the top of his helmet. On the other side, by Mas Amedda you can see the visor and above of the second royal guard. Hope this helps clarify things for you.
