The Prince is said to be increasingly concerned for their safety, amid reports that their round-the-clock security would end
Prince Andrew is said to be increasingly concerned for the safety of his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, amid reports their round-the-clock security will end.
It seems a royal row could be brewing after The Sunday Times claimed the princesss’ 24-hour police protection is about to be scrapped.
The cost of Beatrice and Eugenie’s current security is said to be too high, as officers travel with them to university, official events and even pubs and clubs.
It’s thought annual protection expenses for the girls could amount to as much as £500,000, including accommodation, travel and living expenses for the princesses’ four bodyguards.
And now their security is set to be scaled back in a bid to save precious pounds.
But so far the princesses themselves don’t seem to be overly concerned by the uproar.
The pair were in great spirits as they attended the Trooping of the Colour to celebrate the Queen’s birthday over the weekend.
Donning pretty tea dresses and their trademark Philip Treacy hats, the girls giggled and waved to onlookers as they performed their royal duties at the event.
