We’ve all heard about the strict, straight-faced guards with tall, black fuzzy hats outside of the Queen of England’s castle. Famous in film as the guard who you can mess around with and they don’t do anything. Right? For this one man, he learned the hard way that this is not always the case.
At Buckingham Palace, the guards are actually fully functioning soldiers who do take their job quite seriously.
And supposedly, they are never to lose their composure. This fact makes curious people try to provoke the soldiers with all types of nonsense.
There are videos all over the Internet of people trying to provoke the soldiers on guard to lose their calm and non-responsive demeanor.
What most people don’t realize is that at roughly 11:30 every day, there is a change of shift between the guards. The guards who have been on duty are released, as the new members come to cover their shifts.
These soldiers do not mess around.
One unlucky tourist was nearly trampled by these solemn soldiers. The man was being warned by his wife to move out of the way because the guards were coming, but he did not move fast enough.
The tourists all line up to let the guards march through at this time of shift changing, but one idiotic man was not paying attention to the stampede of the Queen’s soldiers coming right for him.
In this shocking video, you can see the man being ran into while the guards marched on with no remorse.
At the end of this video, you can hear some woman with a British accent exclaim, “stupid man!”
What do you think of the guard’s persistence? Cruel or professional? Let us know in the comments below!
