A member of the Queen’s Guard turned his rifle on a tourist who had been mimicking his stride in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
A video uploaded to YouTube shows the lone guard patrolling part of the castle grounds with a bayonet-tipped rifle perched on his arm.
The tourist can then be seen bravely mocking the guard’s stride, while someone off camera can he heard saying ‘his gun is jammed.’
But when the unsuspecting tourist placed his arm on the Queen’s Guard, he got more than he bargained for as the guard screamed ‘step back from the Queen’s Guard.’
With a hefty rifle pointed directly at him, the tourist scarpered, leaving the guard to continue his duties in peace.
Check out the altercation in the video below.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
