Duke of Cambridge spends time working with British secret agencies
Over the course of three weeks in March, the Duke of Cambridge worked with secret agencies MI5, MI6 and GCHQ; Kensington Palace revealed on April 7.
Prince William worked with counter-terrorism operatives; where he analysed and carried out investigations. He also learnt about risks to the United Kingdom’s national security and economy.
MI5 is the UK’s domestic counter-intelligence security agency whilst MI6 deals with counter-intelligence from abroad. GCHQ provides intelligence and information signals and information assurance to the government as well as to the armed forces in the UK.
The faculties operate in secrecy and the employees are forbidden to tell their families and friends of the work they carry out in the agencies. William said the experience was “truly humbling” and that the agencies were “full of people from everyday backgrounds doing the most extraordinary work to keep us safe”.Filed under The United Kingdom
