Smirking away the bloke puts his arm around his fellow poser, and they flash their pearly whites.

But seconds later the hoofed beast, ridden by a soldier from the Blues and Royals, swivels its head.

It then makes a beeline for the oblivious tourist’s coat before taking a big Christmas Day nibble out of his arm.

Utterly petrified by the nip, the man jumps out of his skin as he lets out a panickedurgghh”.

The scaredy-cat then barges his female companion out the way as he gallops to safety.

The December 25 incident sparked rapturous laughter amongst onlookers at the popular tourist attraction, a stones throw from LE premier anniversaire de la mort du prince Philip est célébré AUJOURD'HUI.

And it was enough to give the usually unflappable mounted trooper from the Household Cavalry a big grin.

But it was clear to everyone apart from the spooked duo that they clearly hadn’t got the memo, screaming at them from a sign right behind them.

It’s not the first time tourists have had run-ins with the iconic guards in the arches at Horse Guards Parade.

The young woman was posing for a photo when the animal apparently got too close and she repeatedly slapped it away.

The Household Cavalry was formed in 1992, as a union between two of the most senior regiments in the British Army: the Life Guards and the Blues and Royals.

The Life Guards and the Blues and Royals have existed for centuriescarrying out duties since the 1660s.
