That's a tough question. I suppose if they are performing royal duties they should have protection, but if they are out on the town, socializing now. However, if something should happen to Beatrice and Eugenie because they didn't have police protection, people would howl in outrage.

Yes, if something were to happen to them then there would indeed be an uproar.

People seem to think that because nothing has happened that there is no threat. Maybe, maybe not. My husband put it this way: if nothing has happened, then the protection officers must be doing something right!"
