One of the royal horse cavalry guards who escorted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their wedding day moonlights as a gay adult film performer and Mr Gay UK in 2007.
As a member of The Household Cavalry, Dan Broughton is a prominent member of the plumed and gold-helmeted mounted royal escort. His unit accompanied the newly married couple’s white horse-drawn carriage through Windsor’s streets following their sumptuous May 19 wedding.
Besides its ceremonial role, The Household Cavalry also serves as Queen Elizabeth’s official bodyguard.
It’s never been a secret that Dan is gay. In fact, he’s believed to be a pal of Harry, who “has even described him as his ‘GBF’, gay best friend”.
In addition to identifying himself as a member of the British military on his Twitter profile, Dan also describes himself as an "International Commercial and Erotica Model".
Various members of the LGBT community attended the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Windsor last month. The younger generation of the Royal Family, including Princes William and Harry, have shown support for LGBT rights.
There is nothing to be ashamed of. I am proud of you, Dan!
Dan was crowned Mr Gay UK in 2007
