5 Times the Queen's Guard Wasn't So Serious
Being a member of the Queen's Guard has got to be tough. Not only are they expected to defend the royal family from any number of threats at the drop of a hat, they also have to put up with annoying tourists trying to break their famously stoic expressions. Though the soldiers have to adhere to a strict set of rules regarding their behavior, there are times when they're not quite so serious. Here are a few of them.
1. When they played the Game of Thrones Theme Song
2. When they played the James Bond Theme Song
3. When they played "The Final Countdown"
4. When this Guard sassed up his patrol
The Army was apparently not pleased with the guard's variation on the traditional walk, saying, "We are aware of the video. Anyone who is found to fall short of the Army's high standards can expect to face appropriate action."
5. When this Guard made faces at tourists
Again, the Ministry of Defence was displeased. "We are aware of the video and will be investigating it," a spokesperson said. "Should any member of the personnel be found to have fallen below expected standards of behaviour, they may be subject to disciplinary action."
