British Trooper, Jack Burnell-Williams, a young 18 year old guardsman who took part in Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral and was responsible for guarding Her Majesty’s coffin, was just tragically found dead at his barracks. How the respected young with a major and honorable responsible suddenly and unexpectedly passed instantly brought out a lot of questions.

“Trooper Jack Burnell-Williams, 18, played a key role in the extraordinary procession guarding Her Majesty’s coffin as it was carried on a majestic gun carriage from Westminster Abbey, through Whitehall, down The Mall and past Buckingham Palace to Wellington Arch earlier this month,” the Daily Mail reported.

“Police and paramedics from London Ambulance Service raced to Hyde Park Barracks in Knightsbridge, central London after the alarm was raised at 3.48pm on Wednesday. He was pronounced dead at the scene,” the breaking report revealed on Friday afternoon.

The beloved Queen was laid to rest on September 19, 2022 at Windsor Castle alongside her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who preceded her in death the year prior.

“On the day of the Queen’s funeral, the soldier’s family proudly posted video footage of troops from the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment taking part in the ceremony, saying that their son was ‘doing his duty for the Queen on her final journey’,” the Mail Online report added.

“But just days later devastated mother Laura, 42, posted a picture of her son, known to his family as Jak, on horseback in his ceremonial uniform and wrote in an emotional tribute on Facebook: ‘Never ever thought I would be saying this but we as a family are all heartbroken with the sudden passing of our wonderful son Jak Williams yesterday.'”

Police stated that at this time they are not treating Trooper Burnell-Williams’ death as suspicious. However, that’s not quelling suspicion or stopping shocked British citizens from asking questions, especially given Jak’s recent close involvement and huge responsibility with the matriarch of the royal family.

According to the Daily Mail, “Trooper Burnell-Williams, who served in the Blues and Royals, is thought to be one of the Household Cavalry’s newest recruits. His family from Bridgend, South Wales are planning on setting off dozens of blue balloons in his memory tomorrow.”

“Jak is thought to have taken part in a series of ceremonial events during the official period of mourning following the death of the Queen on September 8 – including guarding King Charles III and senior members of the Royal Family when the coffin was taken in a gun carriage procession to Westminster Abbey from Buckingham Palace ahead of her lying in state.”

Suspiciously, nowhere in the lengthy report of this tragically young man’s death did it include any details to what caused his sudden passing. Police aren’t suggesting a cause of death, which seems odd for a seemingly healthy 18-year-old in his prime. It leads one to wonder if there was some foul play for some reason, given his proximity to the Queen.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson simply said in their public statement on the matter: “An 18-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.”

“The death was unexpected, it has been investigated and is not being treated as suspicious. Officers will assist with preparing a report for the coroner.”

A relative of Trooper Burnell-Williams’ was interviewed at the family’s home saying “He’s in shock. He’s struggling at the moment and not thinking straight.”

After Jak’s mother announced her son’s death on Friday, hundreds of tributes poured in for the well respected young guardsman.

Among the many comments was Jak’s girlfriend, Molly Holmes, who commented on Jak’s mother’s Facebook announcement of her son’s tragic passing: “Forever going to miss you my love. Truly heartbroken.”

Jak’s sister Elisha wrote: “We will get through this together as a team. We need to do him just as proud as he’s done us.”

Elisha said family and friends will be setting off blue balloons in his memory at Bryntirion Football Club in Bridgend in his memory at 4pm tomorrow, the Daily Mail reported.

Elisha encouraged fellow mourners on Facebook to join her family in remembering Jak: “Please spread the word and join us in celebrating my boy’s life. Blue colours to be worn preferably and also blue balloons.”

One well-wisher wrote: “So very sad. I’m so shocked. We have all seen the videos of him doing his duty for the Queen over the last month. Thinking of you.”

Jak’s aunt Jodie Danks commented: “Such heartbreaking news. I can’t believe you’re gone. You was taken way too soon. We all love you so much my handsome nephew. You made us all so proud. Rest in peace,” while a fellow Army mom left a heartfelt message to Jak’s mourning mother: “Absolutely devastated for you as a family. Was a pleasure to have met Jak and for our son to have spent the last two years alongside him.”
