It appears that even the royal guards of Buckingham Palace in the United Kingdom are Queen fans too.
The Queen’s Guard surprised tourists visiting the Palace by playing their own rendition of one of Queen’s most famous songs, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” as seen on a Twitter video by a netizen named Frosty (@Frosty_Trap) on Monday, Jan. 7.
“I’m at Buckingham Palace. AND THESE F*CKERS PLAYED BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY,” the netizen wrote in excitement. The video also showed other tourists taking videos of the Band of the Grenadier Guards.
The video is now making the rounds on the social media site, with 205,000 views and around 10,000 likes, as of writing.
Several netizens expressed their amazement at the guards’ performance. One going by Tyler B. Parker (@VENOMSbPARKER) said he had “CHILLS. [LITERAL] CHILLS” when he watched the video.
Meanwhile, littlecurrentlion (@littlegallion) simply expressed “How awesome is this!”
And someone named Sofia (@SofiaSweeneyxo) even raised a proposal: “[Can] we make a petition to make [Bohemian Rhapsody] our new [British] anthem?”
On Jan. 7, the Facebook page of the Band of the Grenadier Guards announced that it would perform “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the “Game of Thrones” theme in light of Golden Globes wins by British personalities.
The Queen biopic snagged two awards: Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for Rami Malek.
Meanwhile, Scottish actor Richard Madden took home the Best Actor in a TV Drama award for his role in “The Bodyguard.” NVG
