Jonathan Thompson, Elizabeth II’s bodyguard who steals hearts

Some time ago, Major Jonathan “Johnny” Thompson, of the 5th Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland, already captivated many people by his great attractiveness, loyalty and friendliness. Now, with the death of Elizabeth II, this Englishman-although a large part of the British population believes that he is Scottish-has once again been the center of attention by being present at the procession and the subsequent religious service for the late monarch.

Major Thompson, who always wears a kilt and sporran, has been a trusted figure of the royal family for many years, working for Elizabeth II for years as the highest-ranking bodyguard. Now, with the death of the queen, he will continue to be at the service of King Carlos III, for whom he has been a senior groom for some time.

His tasks are to personally protect and serve the head of the monarchy for three years as well as assist him in all his public appearances. In addition, he must also protect the carriages and cars of the new monarch on his official journeys and at State ceremonies.

Fans of the British monarchy tend to pay close attention to Thompson, who has been affectionately dubbed Elizabeth II’s sexy bodyguard and is something of a British sex symbol. In fact, the British press, especially the gossip press, focuses a lot on his figure. In addition, social networks burn when he makes an appearance: he has a fan club and his compilation videos accumulate millions of views. However, those who are in love with this 39-year-old man should know that he has been married since 2010 and has a son.

All eyes turn to him

Due to his high rank, Major Thompson often attends official events and has often been photographed with Queen Elizabeth II. During the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June this year, the royal squire was one of the big stars as he took center stage for sitting just behind Harry and Meghan Markle at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The next appearance of the squire of Carlos III will presumably be at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, which will take place on Monday, September 19 at 7:30 p.m. in London’s Westminster Abbey. There will also be the emeritus kings Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía.
