TWO soldiers collapsed to the ground outside St Paul's Cathedral ahead of the royal family's arrival during the Queen's Jubilee.
Royal fans cheered as one of the brave Royal Air Force soldiers got back on his feet following the fall ahead of the Service of Thanksgiving.
The member of the RAF was part of the military guard of honour lining the steps to St Paul's Cathedral.
And moments later, a second member of the military personnel lining the steps collapsed, but was also able to get to his feet and was helped way on foot from the cathedral, despite a stretcher being brought out.
Both were able to get to their feet and were helped away after they collapsed.
