Boogieing Buckingham Palace guard faces disciplinary action
Dancing officer could be censured over pirouettes outside Queen’s London residence, says MoD
Forget changing the guard at Buckingham Palace: Tourists at the London landmark were recently treated to an impromptu dance production by one of the palace’s iconic guards.
But the light-footed soldier, a member of the British Army’s most senior infantry regiment, now faces an investigation and possible disciplinary action for his shimmying and shaking, seen in a video posted online last month.
“Anyone who is found to fall short of the Army’s high standards can expect to face appropriate action,” a spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense told The Daily Mail, a popular British tabloid.
The Queen was believed to have been in Scotland at the time the video, which is now being treated as authentic, was filmed.
