In GIFs: Queen’s Guard falls over outside Buckingham Palace

A little while back the whole world stopped to watch this renegade Queen’s Guard tear up the rule book with a killer dance routine. Now, we’ve found another unlikely fluffy-hatted hero.  

The poor fella slipped and fell on his back during the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace – and it all got caught on camera. David Meadwell, who recorded the video told The Telegraph: ‘I didn’t expect anything like this to happen — he went flying. There were quite a few people around and there were a lot of gasps as he went down.’

To be fair to the Guard, he gets knocked down but he gets up again (you’re never gonna keep him down), whereas we’d have probably rolled around the floor footballer-style to bag the sympathy vote. But still, it was a full-on ‘HE FELL OVA! HE FELL OVA!’ moment.

Let’s get a slo-mo look at that mega bail.
