Royal Guard Collapses Near Queen Elizabeth II’s Coffin

Royal Guard Collapses Near Queen Elizabeth II’s Coffin

A moment of drama as thousands file past the queen’s coffin. A royal guard collapsed while standing beside Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin. Thankfully, two Scotland Yard officers rush to help the guard. For a moment it appeared that King Charles III was also unsteady on his feet after walking for 40 minutes behind her coffin then standing to attention in the hall. Although the king did not partake in public engagements today, Prince William and Kate Middleton shook hands with well-wishers.

    As someone who spent 10 years active duty Army and has spent countless hours in various types of ceremonies I can tell you this happens all the time. Sometimes from dehydration, overheating, illness or locking your legs out. I’ve seen it many times. Standing at attention for a long period of time is very difficult. I remember when I was stationed in Hawaii we had a change of command ceremony that lasted over 3 hours. We had to stand in formation that while time in a field with no shade and it was 89 degrees out thst day. Absolutely awful.

    I can only imagine how tough that could of been for the Queens Guard. The stress of the situation, the overwhelming sadness for Her Majesty’s Death, and the hours upon hours of diligent standing watch. I hope the Guard is doing well. God Save The King.

    For us she was The Queen. For Charles, she was his mother. I have nothing but understanding and empathy for him getting frustrated at a pen. I cant imagine its easy losing a parent, no matter how old you might be. Also, we the everyday people can lock ourselves away and take as much time as we need to mourn and get over the loss of losing someone, for Charles, he’s had to spring into action literally over night.

    I’m surprised we haven’t seen it sooner than we have and Ive felt for every one of them so far.

    As an ex-Navy member who participated in many ceremonies, I can tell you it is very difficult to maintain such a position for an extended amount of time. I used to see people fainting when standing for prolonged periods all the time. It also happened to me once and the feelings of embarrassment and humiliation is terrible.
    I have nothing but compassion and empathy for those fulfilling their guard duties during these events.

    We all get frustrated over silly little things when grief takes control. Leave the king alone! He has just lost his mother. 😔

    Poor guy must of been exhausted.

    I’ve stood for parade many times and I know it’s hard going, I can only imagine the immense pressure of having to stand guard for the Queen.

    Respect to all the guards 💂

    Charles is human. Patience isn’t always available when do you have lost a loved one and under so much pressure to be perfect.
