Charles has just been officially crowned as King Charles III of England in a historic coronation ceremony marked by tradition.
At this important event, his “handsome bodyguard”, known as Major Johnny, captured much of the public’s and social media’s attention.
Let’s see why!
Who is Major Johnny Thompson?
Major Johnny, also known as Jonathan Thompson, is a handsome young man who works as a bodyguard and squire in the service of the British Crown. In addition, he is also part of the Royal Regiment of Scotland in the 5th Battalion and was the highest-ranking protector of the late Queen Elizabeth II until her death.
This attractive young man has been accompanying King Charles III in all the public events in which he has participated in recent months.
However, it is not the first time that Major Johnny accompanies a member of royalty, due to the fact that he was also Queen Elizabeth II’s bodyguard during her day-to-day life and, after her death, he joined her son’s entourage.
The most desired squire of the British royals
From the moment he made his first public appearances alongside King Charles III after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Major Johnny jumped to fame on social networks.
The young man was the absolute protagonist at the first meeting between Prime Minister Liz Truss and the monarch.
Dressed in the uniform of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, his corpulent physique and his undeniable attractiveness did not go unnoticed by users of social networks.
During the coronation ceremony of Charles III, Major Johnny once again captivated the audience.
Attired in his uniform and thick tartan kilt, he accompanied the King throughout the ceremony and, once again, his attractiveness did not go unnoticed.
As a curious fact, the followers of the British Royal Family on social networks have baptized him with the title of ‘Major Eye Candy’, something like “a treat for the eyes”.
