A video of a female tourist getting pushed out of the way by a Queen's Guard soldier at Windsor Castle is going viral on Chinese social media.
In the video, the guard can be seen approaching behind the tourist as she poses for a photo at the popular United Kingdom attraction. The woman appears to have crossed the barrier preventing visitors from entering prohibited areas of the castle grounds.
As she's in the middle of taking the photo, the guard pushes her aside. The woman can be heard screaming as she is shoved out of the way.
The guard then continues to march on.

The 10-second video was uploaded to Weibo earlier this week, though the original post didn't include any information about when the incident took place or the identities of those involved. The tourist's nationality has also not been confirmed.
Tagging the official Weibo account of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, the original video uploader called the guard out for his "rude" behavior.
"Even if this visitor has crossed the line, [the guard] shouldn’t be so arrogant," the post read. The post has since been deleted, and the Duke of York has not responded.
Many commenters on the post appeared to be amused by the incident, with several applauding the guard for his actions.
"Nice push!" read one comment on the video.
"Beautifully done!" added another.
The BBC's Tim Hague reshared the video on Weibo, attempting to explain why the guard pushed the tourist out of the way.
"The Royal Guards are part of the British Army, and it's their responsibility is to protect the royal family and keep them safe," he said. "The warning line is there, meaning that the line shouldn't be crossed. If crossed, the Royal Guards have the right to decide if you're a dangerous threat, and if they need to use a gun. Pushing is the lightest solution." (Hague's post was also eventually deleted).
After Hague's post went viral, the BBC sport presenter wrote on Weibo: "I did not expect my message to spread across Weibo, thank you for your support!"
The tourist is certainly not the first to get in the way of the guards, either. Just take a look at this compilation video (VPN off):
