Watch: The Queen’s Guard celebrate Bohemian Rhapsody Golden Globe win


In celebration of the Golden Globe award that Bohemian Rhapsody won, the Queen’s Royal Guard performed their rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody outside Buckingham Palace.


The Band of the Grenadier Guards on Monday performed their rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody in honour of the movie’s Golden Globes win. They took to the courtyard just hours after the biopic won Best Picture.

The various bands of the Royal Guard have had a creative burst over the last year and have marked each special moment with a rendition of a song signifigant to that moment. For example, the Band of the Welsh Guards performed a rendition of Aretha Franklin’s respect outside Buckingham Palace after the singer passed away in August last year.

The Queen biopic has moved thousands of people and shown a side of Freddy Mercury that the world never got to see. Our resident Good Things Guy, Brent Lindeque went to see the movie last year and shared a powerful review of the movie.

“From the moment the new biopic starts and the guitar riff is heard in the iconic 20th Century Fox fanfare, to the final scene where the crowd is as alive as the music and the legend of Freddy Mercury has been brought to life, I was in awe. Queen and the story behind the music – which broke all the rules and set new norms for rock ‘n’ roll – is one that is actually completely unbelievable. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They went on to reach unparalleled success but not without absolute tragedy.

Rami Malek brings the larger than life rock star to life and plays the part to perfection. At times you have to remind yourself that you’re not actually watching a documentary but rather a rendition of the character who will go on to live forever.” – Brent Lindeque
