Watch viral video: UK Queen’s Royal Guard tramples over little boy

Screengrabs from the viral video.

A viral video which shows a Royal Guard of the British Queen callously knocking over a little boy who came in the way while he was marching at the Tower of London has triggered a storm on social media.

Many have criticised the callous guard for continuing to march into the boy and then not bothering when the child fell to the ground.

A spokesperson for UK’s Ministry of Defence told Daily Mail that they were aware of the video and the guard did in fact check on the boy later.

'We are aware of an incident at the Tower of London earlier today during a routine patrol," the Ministry of Defence said in a statement.

"The Guardsmen on duty warned members of the public that a patrol was approaching but the child unfortunately ran out in front of the soldier unexpectedly.

Some netizens have defended the guard saying he was doing his duty as per tradition.

The video was first shared anonymously on TikTok, from where it made its way to other social media platforms. It has been viewed more than 2 million times on Twitter.
