Regarding the incident with the tourist, the Ministry of Defense explained, “The Household Division is proud to guard Her Majesty and honored that people come from around the world to watch our ceremonial spectacle.”

However, the Ministry also warned the tourists that the ropes are there for a reason and it would be unwise for the tourists to cross them.

'The ropes are there to protect both the public and our soldiers; please stay behind them,' the online source quoted the Ministry as stating.

The source further informed that the units have been serving the monarchs since Charles II took the throne after the English Restoration in 1660.
