Royal guard shouts at tourist for getting a few inches too close to black gate

A video has captured a Queen’s Guardsman shouting at a tourist who got too close to the gates outside Windsor Castle.

Footage shows a guard shouting “stay away” at an oblivious visitor who is posing for a picture.

The startled man is then seen spinning on the spot and offering a salute to the guard.

The soldier, who is holding a bayonet over his shoulder, closes the gate and joins three other guards as they march towards the castle.

As the guard walks off, the tourist then moves back towards the gate and takes the photo he initially intended to.

It is unclear when the video was filmed but it was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week.

This isn’t the first time a Queen’s Guard has been filmed bellowing at a tourist.

Earlier this year, a solider, believed to be part of the Scots Guard regiment, was heard shouting “get yourself away” at a dancing tourist.

The video was posted to YouTube and almost has one million views.
