British royal guardsmen in Buckingham Palace are famous for their fancy bear hats and their "keep calm" super-power.
How to make british guard laugh in London
In fact, British royal guardsmen are not as serios, as they look: in 2007 Welsh Guards Orchestra played Star Wars' Empire March to Saudi Arabia's king. But guards on service aren`t able to speak, move or even smile. And this is why hundreds and thousands of tourists are trying to make them laugh and taking funny selfies with them. Try it!
