We would like to think that in the presence of royalty, we know it, Knowledge They were there. But thanks to the security detail of the British royal family (known as the royal protection officer), royals can often slip in and out of their local grocery store or clothing store without causing a massive scene.
How is it possible to overlook the British royal family when they are in public? Because this is the purpose, Simon Morgan, a state protection officer from 2006 to 2013, and founder of Personal Protection Agency, Trojan Consultancy, said Reader's digest.
Rule # & # 39; 1: Don't Destroy What's & # 39; Go on
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, visited a health and wellness store close to Kensington Palace, where they stood in front of the birth of their son, Archie Herison was born with a bat-type windsor, blending their environment with casual clothing. See on the street.
Why? How not to pay more attention to yourself. It is the same thing that royal protection officers do because it's face, being surrounded by security officers makes a man stand out.
Markle and Prince Harry are two of the most recognizable people on the planet and were clearly visible leaving the store but they made it smooth and safe.
"Our focus primarily isn't surprising the environment," Morgan said. Meaning they do not block the street as people would expect when a member of the royal family goes out in public.
Rule number 2: Follow the model
Morgan explains that royalty protection officers follow a certain model when royal family members leave in public which does double duty. It keeps them safe and basically down in their environment.
"This model is called" Discrete and Unobtrusive, "Morgan said. The idea is that security should merge so much that when a member of the royal family walks down the street and a man thinks they see them , They say, "Wait, was that? Nah, couldn't have been.
Why security crowds can be stressful for security
Members of the royal family are known to welcome crowds into royal appointments. Unfortunately for Morgan, he found this practice the most stressful part of his job because he would have to constantly scan the load for possible threats. At the same time, he knew it was part of the job.
Morgan said, "They are a family of the people, and tied it up," Access and phase time with the members of the public is important to them. You must manage and manage the risks associated with it. "
Public events require a lot of planning
While we, the public, can see Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, greeting crowds in an event and accepting gifts or flowers, as a simple event, but something but Morgan. Interacting with crowds requires a lot of planning.
It looks easy because "lots and lots of work has gone into this," Morgan noticed. "It's not a case of coming up and hoping for the best." Royalty protection officers have meetings on top of meetings to discuss what will happen and what may happen to keep the royal family safe.
All the information really makes one think twice about what it means for Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family to go out in public.
