Concerns have been raised since last night about the health of the Royal Guard who fell while watching over the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Hall. As the guard stood at the foot of the dead monarch’s coffin, he suddenly fell forward and fell to the floor.

Footage taken from a live broadcast posted on social media around 1 a.m. captured the fall. A black-clad guard stood with a ceremonial staff. Nearby officials immediately rushed to his aid. The live footage then faded to the exterior of the building, night vision for a while.

Guards of any unit, including the Sovereign’s Bodyguard, Household Division, or the Yeoman Warders of the Tower of London, must stand perfectly still in the four corners of the Catafalk. The soldier changes his position every 20 minutes, but the time he is standing and completely still is 6 hours.
