Popularly known as the Beefeaters, The Yeoman Guard of Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and the Tower of London are the Queens bodyguard. Beefeaters are responsible for safeguarding the crown jewels. Our Great British Beefeater wears an authentic hand stitched and hand folded ruff finished with a beautiful lace trim. His red tunic has been skilfully embroidered with the initials EIIR and a Thistle, Rose and Shamrock to represent Scotland, England and Ireland. Soldiers were originally paid in rations of meat and were given a choice of Lamb, Mutton or Beef. The Queens bodyguards preferred Beef and were nicknamed Beefeaters. This iconic British character is the perfect gift for family visiting from outside the UK.
