Queen’s Guards Battle Sweltering Heat in Hefty Uniform
Remarkable footage of a royal guard furiously yelling at a tourist for touching his horse while she posed for a picture has gone viral on TikTok.
The video was shared on TikTok by the account @phigs, where it has since been viewed more than four million times.
In the video, which was recorded in the summer before the Queen had passed away, the text overlay reads 'Queen's guard verbally attacks my step mum' with the caption reading: "We will never return to London after this incident."
Getting a photo with one of the royal guards is part of the tradition of visiting London but there are certain rules such as no touching, which some tourists often attempt to push it to the limit.
This appears to have been what happened in this instance as the woman in question looks to have put her hands on the horse's reigns which prompts a very angry outburst from the guard.
"Stand back from the Queen's lifeguard, don't touch the reins!" he shouts, startling the woman and causing her to scurry away from the horse.
