One of the guards for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge is having a moment of publicity he might like to forgo.
A protection officer believed to be guarding William and Kate’s cottage on the remote Welsh island of Anglesey unintentionally discharged a gun while in an unmarked police vehicle Wednesday afternoon, London’s Metropolitan Police said Friday.
The round damaged only the vehicle’s floor, and no one – including the two officers in the car – was injured, according to Scotland Yard.
“As a matter of course, an internal inquiry is being carried out into the circumstances of the incident,” Metropolitan Police said.
The couple lives at the cottage on Anglesey, where William has been working as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter pilot. It’s not clear whether either was home when the gun was fired.
