While Queen Elizabeth II received treatment for a stomach bug, a couple of officers guarding her hospital were making headlines as well.
Police officers Anthony Wallyn and Tony Thich, aka Big Tone and Little Tone, stood outside London’s King Edward VII Hospital, giving photographers something to discuss — and shoot — while they waited for news of the Queen's health.
Wallyn, the country’s tallest policeman, measures 7”2 in height – a far cry from Tony Thich, who is 5”6, according to the Guardian. Thich is the smallest officer in the Metropolitan Police's Westminster Borough Support Unit.
The Queen left the hospital Monday, a day earlier than previously anticipated. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Her Majesty — who is 5"4 — got a chance to pose for a picture with the officers.
