Did The Queen's Royal Guard Collapse From Vaccine?!


Truth : Queen’s Royal Guard Did NOT Collapse From COVID-19 Vaccine!

It’s becoming a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all public deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why… and the current facts that we know so far.

Fact #1 : The Royal Guard Did Not Die

The Royal Guard who fainted while keeping guard around Queen Elizabeth II’s casket did not die. So the claim that he was another case of “sudden death” is false.

The man blacked out and fell forwards, sprawling onto the floor off the podium, as police officers rushed to his aid. He recovered shortly afterwards.

This was confirmed by a Beefeater who was also holding vigil at the Queen’s casket – RAF veteran Tam Reilly, who said, “As far as I know, he recovered shortly afterwards“.

Fact #2 : He Had To Stand Completely Still For 6 Hours

The ceremonial guards surrounding the Queen’s casket have to stand completely still for 6 hours at a time.

The only opportunity for them to break that monotony is the position rotation that occurs every 20 minutes. But otherwise, they have to stay completely still.

The human body is not meant to stand straight for long periods of time. Hence, it is not surprising for any one of these ceremonial guards to faint after standing still for so long.

Fact #3 : Not Uncommon For Ceremonial Guards To Faint

It is not uncommon for ceremonial troops like the Queen’s Royal Guard to faint or collapse at any event that requires standing for long periods of time, like Trooping the Colour.

In fact, it is so common that the soldiers are taught how to “faint to attention”. They should avoid toppling sideways, or try to lean onto nearby support.

But if they must faint, the soldiers are expected to faint forward, while still holding their rifle at attention, or with their arms at their side.

In the 2017 Trooping the Colour parade, five soldiers toppled over on that extremely hot day. You will note that it was many years before COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

In other words – COVID-19 vaccines are not the reason for British soldiers collapsing during such ceremonies.

Fact #4 : Unknown If He Was Vaccinated

The Royal Guard soldier who collapsed was not named. His vaccination status was certainly not revealed.

So there is really no way for anyone to know if he was vaccinated against COVID-19. For all we know – he could be completely unvaccinated!

The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if the Royal Guard was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received all of his doses many months ago.

He cannot possibly have collapsed from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.
