A 'wonderful' young guardsman who took part in the Queen's state funeral has tragically been found dead at his barracks, MailOnline can reveal today.
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.
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. Police said they are not treating the death as suspicious.
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'.
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.'
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 -

Fully vaxxed could very well be the cause of his death like it has been for so many other young people so far.
Poor guy. My sympathies to his family.
Maybe he had some kind of congential ailment, destined to take him early in life, but I’m suspecting it wasn’t a matter of being born with something chronic at all.
He will always be honored by the Brits for his work during the Queen’s funeral.
Poor mother. She was so proud of her young son. Gone forever. RIP Jak Williams.
Thankfully he was vaccinated, or he would have died worser.
Amazing how God displays the need for the Gospel in one story: From an aged Queen to the youngest of soldiers.
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow.
They write a whole story about the death of an 18 year old and carefully avoid mentioning the one bit of the story the wider public is reading the story to learn.
It was a drug overdose (accidental suicide), deliberate suicide, or as frequently speculated on this forum, a sudden death believed related to vaccination. Thanks to two years of lockdowns during teenagers’ prime formative years, suicide is far more likely than the other two.
My first guess is suicide due to the comments from family, friends, and associates. Whether at college or in the military or otherwise on their own, young people have a relatively high rate of suicide due to being apart from their accustomed support of family for the first time.
Why was he wonderful? Dead from an overdose of something laced with unknown fentanyl
The longer we float around WWIII with no Western leader at all to speak of trying to sue for peace, we are going to see an absolute tidal wave of young suicides to come. They aren’t dumb. The future for them is bleak as it’s ever been.
Joe Biden asking for the guy yet?
A 20 something living at home down the street from us almost killed his mom that way. She was cleaning his room. She felt dizzy and went next door to ask for help. She never made it inside. The EMT showed up in about five minutes and after they assessed her they hit her in the IV with Narcan. In ten seconds she was breathing. She gained consciousness at the hospital.
The kid is in a 3 month court ordered rehab-detox. Mom is fine now. Close call.
I watched the funeral procession with the horse soldiers. Condolences to his family, how proud they must’ve been, and then this…
That is scary.
(The longer we float around WWIII with no Western leader at all to speak of trying to sue for peace,)
You should talk to a state trooper who has the drug dog.
Stuff that will scare you sick.
/prayers of protection for my friend and his dog
Well a war is at least diverting and entertaining. What did Nieitsche say , a good fight enobles any cause.
Tragic... may be rest in peace.
The Kaufman translation of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, as best I remember it, said
"You have been told that a good cause justifies any war. But now I say unto you, it is the good war that justifies any cause."
