A royal guard dramatically collapsed in front of crowds of mourners while he was watching over the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall overnight.
The guard was standing at the foot of the late monarch’s casket, holding a ceremonial staff, when he suddenly swayed and fell forwards to the floor at around 1am.
Officials rushed to his aid and live footage of the broadcast was interrupted while the guard was checked.
A stretcher was quickly brought out, but the unknown soldier managed to stand up by himself.
However, moments later after he returned to his post, he dramatically swayed again and was escorted away by three staff.
