Security will definitely be a top priority when the item comes to Meghan Markle as well as Prince Harry’s feverishly anticipated wedding, the late Princess Diana’s former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe, tells ET.
ET spoke to Wharfe — a former protection officer to Diana as well as her sons, Prince William as well as Prince Harry — on Thursday. According to Wharfe, police will make sure nothing is actually overlooked for the massive occasion, as well as no expense will be spared.
“by my own experiences — as well as speaking to colleagues within the last few weeks — Scotland Yard as well as neighboring police forces which will be part of This kind of operation will be only too aware of how important the item is actually to make sure which no stone is actually left unturned, as well as you know, one talks in This kind of day of austerity of finance,” he says. “Trust me on This kind of occasion, finance has nothing to do with This kind of. Scotland Yard, together with Thames Valley Police — which will be policing This kind of event — money is actually not an object, as well as they make sure which the very best of security is actually put on display to make sure which security is actually not compromised.”
Meghan as well as Harry are set to marry on May 19 at Windsor Castle in London, England. ET learned on Thursday which the two faced an anthrax scare last Monday, when a white substance was sent in an envelope addressed to the couple along having a threatening letter, which a source told us had “racist overtones.” The substance was tested as well as determined not to be anthrax, as well as Metropolitan Police are investigating the letter, which is actually being treated as a racist hate crime.
“I think the very fact which such an incident’s happened, as well as This kind of package has been received, I think the item sort of sends out a message, certainly to the security services ahead of the wedding in May,” Wharfe tells ET. “as well as, you know, one has to be very alert, given the fact which Harry as well as Meghan are very high-profile individuals, as well as for the vast majority of people within the globe, receiving messages of great joy as well as comfort. however in This kind of world we currently live in, we have … what we call ‘fixated individuals’ which are determined in some way or another to corrupt which goodness. The great thing is actually which This kind of package was found, which proves the security… issues which are in place are working.”
Wharfe is actually confident which security will be top notch at Meghan as well as Harry’s nuptials.
“With all the expertise as well as using all the templates of William’s wedding, as well as some other weddings within the past, the security there will be massive,” he stresses. “As I said several years ago, when William was married, which I do not forsee any problems at all. There will be sort of fringe demonstration, perhaps, for those which are Republican which perhaps don’t like the idea of a royal wedding, however the police are well versed in This kind of as well as will use their experience over many, many years to ensure which the happy couple have a great day.”
