Queen's Guard yells at tourist © YouTube Queen's Guard yells at tourist A Queen’s Guard yelled at a sight-seer who got a little too close to him while posing for a photograph at Windsor Castle.

In video footage which has emerged online, the soldier, wearing a bearskin and a red coat, closes one of the castle gates before startling the absent-minded tourist by bellowing “stay away”.

The shocked man spins around and offers a brief salute to the uniformed guard, as onlookers appear equally alarmed.

The soldier, holding a bayonet over his solider, locks the gate and walks on, joining three other soldiers as they march towards the castle.

As he heads off the bespectacled tourist appears to move back towards the gate to get the desired photo.

The start of the 30-second video shows three of the soldiers march into the castle's grounds through the gate, before the fourth soldier closes it.

It is not the first time this year a Queen's Guard has been filmed barking an order at a tourist.

A video emerged in March showing a soldier shout at a tourist to move away from St James's Palace after the sight-seer was filmed doing a dance there.

The soldier, thought to be part of the Scots Guard regiment, shouted: “Haw, get yersel’ away,” before the man stopped.

In the video, which was shared tens of thousands of times, the man was being filmed dancing outside the royal palace in Westminster.
