The Queen and other members of the Royal family have had their security stepped up because police believe British air strikes on Syria have increased the risk of a terrorist attempt on their lives.

Royal sources said the security measures were enhanced from the moment Parliament voted in favour of bombing Syria on Wednesday.

All senior members of the Royal family are affected, though Prince Harry is seen as particularly vulnerable because of his active military service in Afghanistan.

A police source said: “Now they’ve had the Syria vote we’ll have to review his security as everyone becomes more of a target.”

The Daily Telegraph understands that all Royal visits at home and abroad are now under review to decide whether they are necessary, sensible or feasible in the light of the increased terrorist threat.

On a thread about William's work as a helicopter pilot, some are up in arms that KP didn't announce beforehand he'd be flying with a RPO.

Royals almost never ever comment on security because it's a matter for the Home Office but given RPOs travel with senior royals no matter where they go, It doesn't seem surprising to me

I gave the example of Prince Harry's security. While in Afghanistan he was there with his SO14 officers. So in addition to the natural security of being posted to an armed military camp (Harry himself carried a side-arm) the powers that be saw for him to be accompanied to a 'war zone' by Metropolitan police officers.

Now if people can make peace with that arrangement I'm not sure why it's such a leap not to expect William to have one as he flies around England.

As security is a matter for the Home Office to decide, I have no issues with William, Harry or whoever having whatever is required. If Harry needs RPOs on a already armed military base so be it. If William needs a RPO to fly a helicopter so be it.

I don't know why people are so surprised, to be honest. I thought it was a given that William would have a RPO on his side.

It's not the actual flying but the taking off and landing. William is a first responder and first responders don't get to choose what incidents they go to.

William can land on a rural farm one mission and attend an accident the next. He can fly to a car crash one day and be at a crime scene the next. You don't know who you'll meet when the helicopter lands. That's where the need for a RPO comes in and given the configuration of the helicopter, there is an extra seat available for an RPO
