This is one of the 38 beefeaters. Beefeaters are retired from the Armed Forces of Commonwealth realms and must be former warrant officers with at least 22 years of service. They must also hold the Long Service and Good Conduct medal.
Beefeaters and their families live in tied accommodation inside the fortress, paying council taxes and rent. Most also have a home outside the grounds in order to have a break from their work environment. The Yeoman Warders Club is a pub exclusively for the Warders and for their invited guests.

@historicroyalpalaces The Tower of London is one of the city's most prized and historic landmarks. William The Conquer constructed the White Tower in 1075 with the outer defensive walls in the following centuries. Despite being one of the most secure buildings in the world, in 2012 the key to one of the internal door locks was stolen! The lock was immediately replaced and the culprit was never found! We promise it wasn’t us, we’re much better suited to stealing gold bars 😂 #NaughtyNaughty#Cheeky
Throwing it back to that time 10+ years ago that my hubby surprised me with a trip to London for Mother’s Day.
I admit that when he surprised me, I was excited but also anxious about many things-leaving our toddlers, being a major one of those worries.
Ultimately we went and we had a fabulous time.
I learned from that experience to always say YES to the opportunity to travel.
And to choose experiences over things-both in giving and in receiving.
👑The mystery of The Tower of London, the beauty of craftsmanship and the sparkle of timeless jewels 💎 We’ll take your on a journey to discover these amazing treasures.

30 St Mary Axe (known previously as the Swiss Re Building), informally known as The Gherkin, is a commercial skyscraper in London's primary financial district, the City of London. It was completed in December 2003 and opened in April 2004. With 41 floors, it is 180 metres (591 ft) tall and stands on the former sites of the Baltic Exchange and Chamber of Shipping, which were extensively damaged in 1992 in the Baltic Exchange bombing by a device placed by the Provisional IRA in St Mary Axe, a narrow street leading north from Leadenhall Street.

House of York
It was a Cadet Branch of the House of Plantagenet and one of the two Royal Houses fighting for the English throne during the Wars of the Roses with the other one being the House of Lancaster. It initially won the Wars of the Roses but was eventually defeated by a Branch of the Lancasters, the House of Tudor. Its legacy can still be felt to this day through the flag of Yorkshire, the White Rose as well as Yorkshire's rivalry with Lancashire, whose flag is the Red Rose of the House of Lancaster. Lastly, "Richard III" a play by William Shakespeare tells the story of the last King of the House of York.
Some notable members are:
Duke Edmund of York
King Edward IV of England
King Edward V of England
King Richard III of England
