Royal PUNCH-UP! Queen’s guards ARRESTED after kebab shop FIGHT yards from Windsor Castle
FIVE of the Queen’s Coldstream Guards were arrested after being involved in a drunken fight outside a kebab shop on Friday night in Windsor, a few yards from the castle where Her Majesty resides.
Shop owner Sam Al-Hassan told The Sun: “There were about three boys in with three girls.
“They’d all been drinking and ordered food.
“Everything was fine until another man came in and started shouting and swearing at them.
“It quickly escalated and went outside where a lot more people got involved.”
Yanni Perry, who also witnessed the fight, added: “There was screaming then thuds, like someone was being punched.”
Thames Valley Police confirmed to The Sun that four men, aged 21, 22, 23 and 27 from Windsor and a 26-year-old from Leeds were taken into custody.
It is not yet clear what caused the fight.
An Army spokesman told Mirror Online: “We can confirm that five soldiers from the Coldstream Guards have been arrested in connection with Thames Valley Police investigations into an incident that occurred in Windsor.
“As this is an ongoing investigation it would not be appropriate to comment further.”
Coldstream soldiers have a ceremonial role as protectors of the Queen and Royal Palaces, including Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.
The regimental band of the Coldstream Guards is one of the oldest and best-known military marching bands in the world.
During Donald Trump’s visit to Windsor in July, they gave him a ceremonial welcome.
