Royal protection is provided by Scotland Yard’s SO14. Simon Morgan was a personal protection officer for several royals, including Prince Harry, from 2007 to 2013. Harry would have come to know his police protection officers, Morgan said, as some had been with him for years and were integrated into his life. “It is a trusted role, you build up a rapport with your principle. You can understand how much anxiety having your protection detail taken away can cause,” he said.
For years I’ve whinged – gently it must be said – about the way that Americans so often get the distinction between principal and principle wrong. Apparently this is another foreign invasion into the language which we must up with put.
