A member of the Queen’s Guard on horseback yelling at tourists in London has sparked discussion after a video of the incident went viral on social media. It happened after two women outside Buckingham Palace were seen posing for photos and got too close to the horse.

As the photo is taken, the woman reaches out and holds the horse’s reins, visibly disturbing the animal. Reacting to this, the soldier shouts, “Get away from the Queen’s rescuer, don’t touch the reins!”

The loud scream startles the blonde-haired woman, who quickly pulls away in shock after being shouted at.

Footage of the incident was originally uploaded to TikTok by user Ethan (@_phigs) who vowed not to return to London after the incident. On Twitter, the clip has more than 2,40,000 views. Another video, which was posted on TikTok, shows another guard similarly shouting at a woman wearing sunglasses and a pink plaid top, reported. Reacting to the video, one netizen wrote that the Guardian was right.

Another wrote that he had met one of the Queen’s Guards and as a veteran himself he could tell the Guard was quite tough. The Queen (Elton John) has hired good men, he added.

“I can understand why he shouted. If millions of tourists continue to pull the horse on the leash, it would be chaos,” the third wrote.

“Safety first!” wrote another user.

One user even called the woman “stupid” and asked her if she thought it was a statue.

Another claimed the Queen’s Guards were right.
