    Guests cheered as a Beefeater tackled the 17-year-old man to the floor as he approached the Royal tea tent in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

    Guest Victor Fisk said the man, who was an invited guest himself, dropped his trousers as he ran across the grass, about 100 yards from the Queen.

    "He was running with them around his ankles and then he pulled them up and kept on running," said flower seller Mr Fisk.

    "The Beefeater ran after him and rugby tackled him.

    "He swerved past two of them. Someone shouted out 'catch him'.
    What or who is a beefeater? and how does a man run with his pants around his ankles?
    "A woman has got to be able to say, and not feel guilty, 'Who am I, and what do I want out of life?' She mustn't feel selfish and neurotic if she wants goals of her own, outside of husband and children"

    Serving the Monarchy for Over 600 Years

    The Yeomen Warders or "Beefeaters", as they are popularly known, were first established at the Tower of London in the 14th Century as the monarch's personal military guard. In later years, their duties included guarding the Tower and its prisoners.

    Until 1826 it was customary to pay for the honour of serving as a Yeoman Warder. However, this practice was discontinued when the Duke Of Wellington was appointed the new constable. From that time on, only retired warrant officers with a minimum of 22 years' military service could join this elite guard. While their duties have changed over the centuries, the Yeoman Warders still play an important role in the Tower's traditions.
