The Princess Royal is the best example of why the BRF have protection. She was almost kidnapped.

That and Lord Mountbatten who was murdered together with his grandson. Up until the Good Friday agreement in 1998 all those living in the United Kingdom lived under threat from the IRA, the Royal family especially.

And I guess you could add Princess Diana's situation in the "reasons to have protection" list too. The list is endless when you come from such a famous family.

You obviously know nothing about her and are trying for reactions from other posters.
She is very well respected in the UK, we like her work ethic, duty, and yes her clothes. She is straight to the point and will not have any time for nonsense.

Not only is she respected in the UK but throughout the Commonwealth.

I'm the same age as Beatrice and have never been a fan of any of the York family.

However I do think that the way the way Beatrice and Eugenie have kept a low profile and managed to hold down jobs for the last few years should be praised.

Likewise, Beatrice's wedding is a great example of prudence. If Harry and Meghan followed Beatrice's example they may actually be able to live the low key lives they claim to want, as the public and press would have nothing to criticise.

Have you seen Princess Anne arrive for an official event. I have and I can say there were no "phalanxes of bodyguards" nor "multiple motorcycles". I think she may have had one police car accompany her (though I think that was from one part of the local area to another) and there was one or two bodyguards with her (well I assume they were bodyguards).

Here is an example of Anne arriving at an official event, I see at most 2-3 bodyguards and one police motorbike.



I believe she is quite pragmatic about security, I think she once said Zara even as a high profile sportswoman didn't need it as she didn't do public duties that were notified in advance. I think its only right she is protected in some way when undertaking "official" and "public" duties. Security for her and the Queen's other siblings has been scaled back over time as the threat against them diminishes and I would be surprised if Anne has around the clock protection in the way the Queen, Charles and the Cambridges do and I doubt she has bodyguards with her when she and Tim go off sailing for weeks in Scotland.

Edit - here is Anne saying just that at the 5.13 mark.
