VIDEOS emerged on social media in the early hours of Thursday, September 15 showing a royal guard at the Queen’s coffin suddenly collapsing.

A royal guard suddenly collapsed at the Queen’s coffin as Her Majesty lies in state.

The man appears to stumble a few times before he collapses off the stage and lands on his face.

Following the shocking incident, several people run to his aid.

Videos have been shared on social media and have sparked hundreds of people to comment on the incident.

One person wrote: “A royal guard at the queen’s lying in state stumbled before falling on his face.”

“I hope the poor guard who fainted at the Lying-in-State is okay! #lyinginstate #WestminsterHall #QueenElizabethII” another person wrote.

“Bet that hurt.”

One person offered a possible explanation for the sudden collapse from the royal guard: “Syncope from locking knees? Extremely common in military formations but usually outside on a warm day.

“Keep knees bent and wiggle toes, and isometrically tense leg muscles if standing still for very long periods to make sure blood keeps moving around well.”

The incident looked eerily similar to that of a Saudi businessman who collapsed and reportedly died back in August.

A video at the time reportedly showed the moment a Saudi businessman died after collapsing during a speech he was giving at the Arab-African Conference in Cairo.

The Saudi businessman was giving a speech at the conference in “support of the achievements of [Egyptian] President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi” when he collapsed and reportedly died on Monday, August 8.

      Hope the guy is ok, but the chap rushing to help was wearing a pointless face mask. Really? This really needs to stop, it is ridiculous.

      Was he jabbed? of course he was, it’s mandatory for military folk.

      Unless you start exposing the excess deaths since the jabs started, we will see milions of sudden death events
