Prince Andrew was involved in a crazytime scare at Buckingham Palace recently and, for a couple seconds, the Queen’s son could have been severely injured by the Royal Protection Officers! The royal protectors had been quite jittery, Palace officials say, due to a recent intrusion that left everyone severely on edge.
A royal insider spoke exclusively to Sunday Express, “Everyone is talking about these two incidents and can’t quite believe what has happened. The fact that this guy was able to wander off unchallenged and not be spotted by anyone is bad enough. But then to mistake the Duke for another intruder is almost incomprehensible. There is a high turnover of the police on duty at the Palace, but you’d think anyone would know what Prince Andrew looks like.
“It’s fair to say that to describe the Duke as unhappy and the two officers as highly embarrassed is the biggest understatement of the century.”
The Prince had just gotten back from a vacation in Spain and was reportedly out for a walk in the garden when we he was “attacked” by the officers. Yikes, I get they’re trying to be careful, but maybe the royal protectors should take a second glance before pouncing on the people requiring their service. LOL. Try to imagine Prince Andrew’s face . . . . I bet he was scared half to death.
