This is the adorable moment members of the Danish Royal Life Guard had to escort out a duck family who had taken up residence in a palace.

Footage shows the the unit, tasked with personally guarding the royal family, slowly escorting a duck and its 12 ducklings from the grounds of the Queen's palace Amalienborg in Copenhagen.

The group bustle around, desperately trying to get them out of the royal's winter residence.

The guards then very politely escort them across the road, and to eventual safety in a nearby harbor.

The scene played out to the chagrin of a gaggle of tourists, laughing delightedly and filming on their smartphones.

The original post, by the Danish royal house’s official Instagram page explained: "A family of ducks had yesterday taken a temporary residence in the garden behind Her Majesty the Queen's Palace.

"Guards from the Royal Life Guards escorted the animals from the mansion across the castle square and led them to the harbour quay from where they jumped into the water and could safely swim on.”

The footage was filmed on May 18.
