King's Guard screams at tourist after she repeatedly slaps horse

For the millions of tourists who descend on London every year, Buckingham Palace and the Mall are generally top of list of stops along the way.


However, one woman's visit didn't go exactly according to plan when she get a little handsy with one of the royal guard's horses.

In a video posted on TikTok, a group of friends can be seen posing for photos along Royal Guards Parade.


At first, nothing seems to be the matter, they take a few pictures and then move away.

But things take a turn when two women approach the horse.

As the clip goes on, the pair try and post for their snaps, with the horse nuzzling into the woman wearing a white and blue coat, bumping her a couple of times.

Clearly not pleased by this at all, she slaps the horse on its nose a few times to get it to stop.

Spotting this, the guard screams at her to get back, causing the woman to jump out of her skin and step away from the horse.

Another guard then races over and the group quickly moves away, with armed police coming over to tell people to leave.

Since the video was shared, it has been viewed countless times, sparking quite the debate.


"People need to remember that they're not an actual tourist attraction," wrote one.

"They have a job and it's real. Winds me up so much."

Another chipped in: "These people are so disrespectful."

This isn't the first time a tourist has been on the wrong side of one of the royal guards, though.

In a video posted on TikTok earlier this year, a blonde-haired tourist was seen approaching the horse, getting quite close to its face.

The powerful animal then turns its head towards her, forcing the woman to step backwards.

In an attempt to get a bit nearer to the horse, though, she then attempts to grab hold of its reins, much to the annoyance of the guard on its back.


Spotting her move, the guard orders her to stop, shouting: "Stand back from the Queen's lifeguard, don't touch the reins!"

Understandably startled by the order, the woman jumps out of her skin, holding her chest as she backs away.

So, you've been warned.
