The Queen’s Guards Boots

You can imagine how grueling a Queen’s Guard’s life has to be simply by looking at these shoes. You might wonder, what makes the boots look so worn out? Don’t they just stand outside the palace? Well, the guards actually have to keep standing for hours on end in accordance with a specific schedule throughout the year.

What’s more is that these boots apparently must not exceed the weight of three dead swans and 10 cucumber sandwiches, according to historical policies. What a strange basis of measuring weight!
