That would be one of the King's guards. Note the "GR" logo above the sentry box for King George VI, who was the father of the current monarch.I suspect that the photo is of the entrance to Marlborough House on Pall Mall.The tunic buttons appear to be arranged in groups of four which would indicate that he's a trooper in the Irish Guards.
