The Royal Guards in front of Buckingham Palace are trained soldiers. They take their jobs very seriously, but thanks to their iconic fuzzy hats, robotic marches and inability to laugh at anything, tourists like to mess with them. To be fair, you couldn’t ask for a better straightman. Here are 7 funny videos starring British guards (and people posing as them):
