A Tourist Touches Queen Elizabeth’s Guard’s Horse And Is Scolded Loudly


During a recent trip to London, a woman got yelled at for touching one of Queen Elizabeth II’s guard’s horses. Her stepson captured the altercation in a now-deleted TikTok video. The woman was seen touching the reins of the horse to get a photo when the guard started yelling at her.

It is common knowledge that you should not mess with the guards or their horses. Many commenters thought the guard had the right to yell at the woman, while others thought he was a bit harsh.

While tourists are allowed to get photos, she came a little bit too close. The guard was seen yelling, “stand back from the Queen’s lifeguard! Don’t touch the reins!” Her stepson wrote that the guard was an “angry little man” and the experience made the family never want to visit London again.

A reporter named Natalie Oliveri spoke about the situation and why the guard was so angry. She said, “I would speculate the woman was reprimanded so forcefully by the guard over concerns for her own safety because approaching the horse as a stranger may spook the animal. And if the horse became frightened it may have lashed out and hurt the woman and in turn, its rider. As a rule, you should never attempt to touch an animal when it is on duty – be that a horse, a police dog or assistance animal.”

Others commented that it isn’t Disney or a place to pet animals and that the horse was a working horse that should never be touched or bothered. What’s your take on this situation?
