5 Hilarious Times London’s Guards Just Couldn’t Deal

London’s Royal Guards are universally renowned for their stoney expressions and stiff postures. Their ability to keep a straight face despite (some quite hilarious) attempts to crack them is astonishing. We couldn’t even keep it cool if a mate whispered ‘fart’ to us during a telling off at school. Imagining the rigorous training it takes to maintain a neutral expression for hours on end, (we’re thinking pictures of animal photobombs and a substantial fine at every snigger – impossible), it’s nice to know that they are, after all, human.
