You think it’s cool? Pirouetting guardsman may be in hot water

Guarding the Queen’s home is a serious and solemn duty.

So it’s a good thing Her Majesty was not around to see this soldier apparently pirouetting on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.

In his red tunic and bearskin, the Grenadier Guard was filmed seemingly trying to ease the boredom of his two-hour shift with a series of remarkably elegant dance moves.

His antics delighted tourists but the Army and Ministry of Defence were not amused. He could now face disciplinary action.

The Queen was not in residence at the time.

But a spokesman for the Ministry of Defence confirmed to the Mail Online that they were aware of the film and have launched an internal investigation.
