Buckingham Palace is one of the most famous tourist destinations in London. It is the place where the monarch of England resides. It was originally built in the year 1703 for the Duke of Buckingham.
This Palace has been guarded by royal staff who are supposed to dress in the traditional uniform with a sword in his hand and holding the expressionless face.
A video has surfaced online where a tourist can be seen trying to make serious-looking royal guard laugh. The man makes various comments about going to school with this royal guard.
This video has been viewed over 13 million times on YouTube. People seem to be really enjoying this incidence and the video has over ten-thousand comments.
It is not an easy task to make a Royal Guard of Buckingham Palace laugh. They are supposed to hold their faces straight as if they were a statue and stand. Most people don’t realize how difficult it is for them to do so.
Some tourists just want to have some fun and capture a few moments with these guards. The tourist says that the Royal Guard was his classmate in school and always used to be a quiet person. He would just shake his head to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
But most people don’t know that these guards get reprimanded for laughing and also might get a lesser paycheck. Some users even commented on YouTube that this guard might have been fired after this video.
Although the smile of the royal guard seemed cute and adorable, his job is to remain dead serious all the time. At the end of the video, the guard was seen being replaced by another one. That is just a routine that is followed every day.
