The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace is not the most convenient time for a guard to slip and fall on his bum – someone is bound to catch it on camera.

But you’ve got to give it to the guy. After his spectacular fall, he springs back up again in no time while his mates continue with the ceremony.

The man who caught the wipeout on camera, David Meadwell, told The Telegraph: “I didn’t expect anything like this to happen — he went flying. There were quite a few people around and there were a lot of gasps as he went down.”
