The Royal Guards are minor characters featured in the Cinderella films. The guards take the role of keeping the castle under control and always making sure that suspicious characters do not harm it or its residents.
The guards are seen standing in rows of two while Cinderella walks down the red carpet to the ballroom. When midnight strikes and she flees the castle in her coach, the Grand Duke sends them on their horses to bring her back. However they returned and informed the Grand Duke that she vanished. They are last seen standing in rows of two while Cinderella and Prince Charming walk to their carriage during their wedding.
The guards open the front doors for Cinderella and Anastasia as they enter the palace. They see Jaq and Gus run into the palace while Lucifer chases after them, but they ignore their presence and go back to guarding the castle.
When Cinderella steals the Magic Wand back from Lady Tremaine, Lady Tremaine orders the guards to arrest her for stealing. Later, when they try to confront Lady Tremaine at Prince Charming's wedding, she uses the wand to turn them into animals. It is unknown if the Fairy Godmother turns them back into their own selves or they change back automatically.
