Yeoman Warder Moira Cameron, left, poses with male colleagues, at the Tower of London, Monday Sept. 3, 2007. Cameron, 42, was the first female protector of the Crown Jewels, famously known as Beefeaters of the Tower of London, since the corps of Tower guards was created in 1485. It is revealed Monday Nov. 2, 2009, that Two male Beefeaters at the Tower of London have been suspended for allegedly bullying their female colleague, Cameron, and a third is subject to an internal investigation over alleged harassment.
