    A Guardsman Broke The Rules Outside Buckingham Palace And Did A Splendid Dance

    Notice how he never breaks the pace of his march with his lovely pirouette – 10/10 guardsmanship right there.

    He also pauses to give the sentry box a quick wipe.

    All in the name of duty, of course.

    At several points he freezes and shows a remarkable sense of balance.

    This former cavalry member is not impressed.

    Others were more sympathetic to the Guardsman.

    Not everyone is as amused by his antics though, and the Ministry of Defence has confirmed it is investigating the stunt.
