You can’t go to London without visiting its historic landmarks. And you’ll definitely encounter the Queen’s Guard at some of these places… but you’ll want to avoid causing trouble around them.

Don’t be surprised if they shout back when you touch them or stand in their way.

This guy thought that touching one of the soldiers while he was doing his Queen’s Guard duties would be cool. It turns out that wasn’t a very good idea at all.

Of course, not all tourists annoy the Guard intentionally, like the poor man in the following clip that went viral on YouTube after being uploaded a few days ago. The Queen’s Guard will walk all over you if you’re in the way.

These are only a couple recent YouTube videos showing the Queen’s Guard being harassed by tourists, but you’ll find plenty more if you search YouTube.
