Rare moment shows Buckingham Palace visitor cracking Royal Guard's stiff upper lip! (WATCH)

The King's Guards and members of the Household Cavalry are renowned for maintaining their composure and expressionless demeanor as they stand outside royal residences. They are not permitted to laugh, smile, or even flinch. Visitors often attempt to provoke reactions by making jokes, dancing, or even invading their personal space by touching their uniforms.

In the video, the man stands beside the straight-faced guard and reminisces, "I know him, he was never talkative. I remember him from school. He used to sit by himself and read books. I was just this guy fooling around and having fun. If you asked him questions, he would answer them with his head." He continues, "His mother always picked him up from school, you know he was that type of guy that until he was 20, his mother picked him up from school."
