Watch: Queen’s Royal Guards perform ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ at Buckingham Palace

Celebrating the Award-Winning Queen Biopic

The Royal Guards have shocked and delighted onlookers with a rendition of Queen's iconic 1975 track 'Bohemian Rhapsody', in honour of the film of the same name's Golden Globe wins over the weekend.

Bohemian Rhapsody won top honours at the 2019 Golden Globes in Best Picture and Best Actor in a Drama (Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury). Videos of the Band of the Grenadier Guards playing the iconic Queen tune circulated on Twitter hours after the wins, with one garnering more than 112,000 views. 

 

 

Following the Queen tribute, the band launched into the Game of Thrones theme, in honour of GoT actor and Golden Globes winner, Richard Madden, for his role in the TV drama Bodyguard.

 

Bohemian Rhapsody recently became the highest grossing music biopic of all time, raking in more than $740,000,000 worldwide. With its recent slew of wins and accompanying critical backlash, that number will likely continue to inflate.
