Guard of dishonour: King of Norway's personal soldiers hid under beds when his distress alarm sounded(via reader Ken R.)
When the King of Norway's personal guards heard an emergency alarm earlier this week, rather than rushing to the aid of their ruler at the Royal Palace, they hid under their beds.
The distress alarm is sounded to warn the King's Guard that a member of the royal family is in danger.
But instead of running from their barracks to the nearby Royal Palace, some of the men hid under their beds and in the bathroom so they wouldn't have to report for duty.
