Didn't Princess Stephanie date or marry her bodyguard? I can't remember if Daniel Ducruet was a bodyguard or not.

Queen Rania's bodyguard has been photographed with her many times. There's a thread about it already

In the Netherlands the members of the royal family are protected by the Royal Marechaussee, a sort of elite police force. This is for the general security of palaces, estates and during transports. The visible guards are just a part. More important are the cameras and the electronic security systems and other provisions to make the palaces 'terror proof'.

The physical security is done by members of the Royal- and Diplomatic Protection Service, a special unit from the Corps National Police Services.

The main members of the Royal House (The Queen, The Prince of Orange and his family, Princess Margriet and her spouse) are secured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In- and outside the Netherlands. When Princess Máxima is visiting relatives and friends in Buenos Aires, she will have security in her slipstream. This will be a considerable number of persons because, no matter where you are, their contracts and shifts, hours off duty and prescribed rest are respected.

The two younger sons of The Queen do not live in the Netherlands: Prince Friso lives in London and Prince Constantijn in Brussels. They are protected when going in public, by security officers from Her Majesty's Embassies in London and Brussels.

I will see if I can see pictures, but in general any man in a costume with an 'ear' surrounding a royal is a bodyguard.

Within two years he had been appointed a Palace bodyguard with responsibility for Prince Albert. In 1991, he was appointed by Prince Rainier to accompany his daughter Princess Stéphanie as bodyguard on her ill-fated tour to promote her record album.
Ducruet began an affair with the princess, who bore him two children. Son Louis was born in 1992 only 10 months after the birth of his first child from his former girlfriend. Their daughter, Pauline, was born in 1994. Ducruet married Princess Stéphanie in a civil ceremony on July 1, 1995.

He was a member of the regiment, but he never served in a guards battalion.
He was a recruit in the Royal Lifeguards Regiment.
Then went straight to the NCO school and served as a sergeant, before going to the officers academy.
Once a first lieutenant he served in the Guards Hussars.
- So, no, he never stood guard at Amalienborg.

But Joachim stood guard for his grandmother, Queen Ingrid, at Gråsten.
