The Queen's Guard is a guard on special duty who appeared just northwest and southeast of Aris' tent and southwest of Horvik's shop on 22 May 2012.

Speaking with them shows that they are to make sure the area is spick 'n' span for a Diamond Jubilee which seemed to be a "top secret" event to be hosted by the Queen. This was a teaser for the Diamond Jubilee event.

The event was released on 29 May 2012, along with the Queen Black Dragon. The event offered players a chance to earn a corgi as a pet, hire a Queen's Guard as a servant for a POH, and participate in the fourth Cryptic Clue event. This event lasted for two weeks.

When talked to, he accused the player of being the POH Servant's accomplice. The player could reply "You'll never take me alive, Copper!", making the avatar walk away from the Guard, shouting.

POH Servant[edit | edit source]

Players may hire a Queen's Guard in their Player-owned houses at the Servant's Guild, which is located north of the marketplace in East Ardougne. The guard has the same functions as Rick. To hire, you must have a Level 20 in Construction. He shares the lowest wage at 500 coins (375 coins after the completion of Love Story). Players must pay him every eight uses of his services. The Queen's Guard has inventory space for 6 items and a trip time of 60 seconds. The guard is unable to go to the sawmill as he lacks insurance to do so.

  • During the event, many bankers across Gielinor are replaced by the Queen's Guard.
  • Contrary to popular belief, you may hire the Royal Guard after the event, even if you have never hired him before.
