How come the Mounties at Buckingham Palace are not mounted in anything?
Marcos from Mexico
Dear Marcos from Mexico.
Those aren’t Mounties, they are Yeomen Warders of Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress the Tower of London, or Beefeaters as they are popularly known.
Beefeaters have a brand of Gin named after them, whereas the likeness of the Mountie is preserved to the domain of ornamental porcelain.
The Mountie doesn't get a salary from takete, but makes his living on tips alone. Did the Mounties answer change your life? Leave a tip!
