When the queen's away, the guards will play!
At least, that's what appears to be the case for this dancing-on-duty soldier outside Buckingham Palace! On Aug. 20, YouTube user Andy Richards uploaded a video of the Queen's Guard member pirouetting, walking in slow motion and behaving very atypically for someone holding this position.
Bystanders were delighted to see the uniformed guard cutting loose a bit as he covered his assigned area during a portion of his two-hour shift. Per Metro U.K., the guard is informed prior to each shift, "You may not eat, sleep, smoke, stand easy, sit or lie down during your tour of duty." (Dancing isn't explicitly listed among these forbidden activities...)
