Teen girls' Twitter video raises security fears for Middleton family

London, Sun, 08 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 8 (ANI): Two teenage girls' claim in a video archived on Twitter that they had called on the Middletons' home to deliver a scrapbook of letters dedicated to Pippa has raised security concerns regarding Duchess Kate's family.

The girls say Pippa's mother Carole opened the door and let them pet her two dogs and Prince William and Duchess Kate's puppy Lupo.

According to the teenagers last week, Carole gave them an address to send the book to.

"I'm really sorry, I just turned someone else away. I can't actually accept it for security reasons but if you send it to this address I'm sure Pippa would really like it," she said.

Former royal protection officer Dai Davies said the book would probably end up at the Fixated Threat Assessment Centre at Scotland Yard which investigates the stalking of public figures.

"While these two girls were clearly just having some innocent fun, it raises questions as to the ease with which those connected to Her Royal Highness can be approached and may cause debate as to whether they are adequately protected," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

"The biggest threat to royals and their extended families comes from fixated persons or obsessives. With the Duchess and her sister Pippa, they are like bees to a honeypot.

"Social networking also gives rise to a great many problems because there is no way of controlling the information out there. Twitter is a vehicle for fanaticism. There should be a review to see what legislation can be brought in to protect people," he added.

During the teenagers' hour-long video, filmed in one of their bedrooms, they reveal they were dropped off by a mother on Tuesday at the Middletons' five-bedroom house in Bucklebury.

They also go into great detail about where the house is located and posted photographs of the front gate online. The Middletons do not qualify for taxpayer-funded bodyguards although it is thought they have sought advice from security experts in the past.

"I would imagine that royalty protection has given the Middletons what used to be called the blue book, giving guidance on what to do if they feel unsafe.

"I would hope there is a panic alarm in their house and contingency plans to provide urgent assistance if deemed necessary," Davies said. (ANI)
