Royal rumble: Queen’s Guard plows through female tourist blocking his marching route (VIDEO)
The female tourist, who was facing the opposite direction to the guard, managed to stay on her feet when the nearly-silent soldier quietly marched up from behind, pushing her forward. In the video the guard, who was dressed in the traditional red tunic and bearskin hat, continues his stride forward after the incident.
It’s not known when the incident took place. Guards usually yell “make way for the Queen's Guard” if a member of the public prevent them from carrying out their duties. Tourists often take photos with the household guards, but the Ministry of Defence reiterated that they must stay within roped areas as they “are there to protect both the public and our soldiers.”
It is understood that there are rules in place to dictate how guards deal with nuisance members of the public. It is believed that they stamp their feet and shout a warning. Raising their rifle is the final warning before a guard can then detain the person causing a disturbance.
