(Newser) – A soldier has been banned from a procession at the royal wedding after calling Kate Middleton a "stuck up cow" in a "vile" Facebook post in which he also joked about shooting Jews, reports the Daily Mail. "Her and William drove past me on Friday and all I got was a wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid, stuck up cow," posted Cameron Reilly, 18, a soldier with the prestigious Scots Guards who guard Buckingham Palace. "Am I not good enough for them!"

Far more troubling was Reilly's Facebook boast about beating up a black man, and his fantasies about shooting Jews. He also called London a "Paki holding cell." Reilly, who joined the guards last year, routinely patrols outside Buckingham Palace. His superiors are continuing to investigate. Hundreds of Scots Guards will be on duty at Kate and Wills' wedding Friday. They'll be stationed along the procession route from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey. More than 1 million fans are the expected to line up to watch. (Read more British royals stories.)
