The Queen’s Guard aren’t meant to move apart from at the Changing of the Guard. Even if you go up to them and prod at them with a 9mm bamboo needle. Although I wouldn’t recommend trying.

They also get to wear bearskin hats. I suggest you leave the bears out of this and make yours with fuzzy yarn.

The Queen’s Guard, complete with soldier’s Royal Busby Hat and gun, is one of four Little Londoners in the Stitch London book.
