Queen’s Guard soldier shoves tourist at Windsor Castle (Watch)

Dramatic moment Queen’s Guard SHOVES tourist out of his way at Windsor Castle.

The video below shows the tourist standing on the wrong side of a rope that seems to designate an area off-limits to visitors. Wearing a yellow dress and sunglasses, the woman seems to be posing for a photo in the path of the oncoming Queen’s Guard.

Approaching her from behind, the soldier shoves the woman while his right hand while holding his rifle steady in his left hand. She falls forward and grabs onto a man in the crowd, who seemed to be recording the moment on his phone. The soldier continues marching forward at the royal residence where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated their wedding this past May.

The video, which the Sun and the New York Post reported earlier, is just the latest example of why it is never a smart move to meddle with a Queen’s Guard.

Back in 2015, an Asian man marched alongside a soldier at Windsor Castle before reaching out and placing his hand on the Queen’s Guard’s soldier. The result was not pretty.

“Get back from the Queen’s Guard!” the soldier yells in the video above, while also pointing his bayonet-tipped rifle at the man.

The Guards are part of five infantry regiments (the Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards) and two regiments of the Household Cavalry (the Life Guards and Blues and Royals), according to the Post. They have been responsible for guarding royal palaces since the beginning of King Charles II’s reign in 1660.

    What utter plonkers some tourists are…surely the idiot woman saw the rope and deduced that it’s there for a reason. Got no sympathy for her. Stupid woman!
