No one can handle this kid's outfit at the Changing of the Guard

No one can handle this kid's outfit at the Changing of the Guard


Lots of little boys like playing soldiers, but not many take it to the lengths of four-year-old Marshall Scott.

He went with his mum, Imogen, to see the Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle, dressed head to toe in a mini-guardsman’s uniform.

As a squad of Coldstream Guards, in matching bear skin hats, marched past and into a doorway, Marshall gave them a strong salute.

Lance Corporal Paul Edden then came out for a quick photo with the toddler – much to the boy's delight.

And the video capturing the affair quickly went viral and has been viewed over a million times online.

L Cpl Edden explained to Forces TV why he did it:

I just remember when I was younger when I wanted a picture with a soldier and seeing Marshall in a Coldstream Guards uniform just made me proud of what I do.

I just thought I would give him a chance to have a picture for himself for his own memories. It wasn't till one of the Guardsmen found the video on Instagram that I was told it was his birthday, so it just made the moment even better.”

He's even offered Marshall a guided tour around the castle.

Mission accomplished.
