Kate and Wills visit regiment's headquarters

Kate Middleton and Prince William visited the SAS headquarters in Herefordshire on Saturday to learn about how to react to potential terror and kidnap threats.

Just like Prince Charles and Princess Diana after their 1981 wedding, Kate and Wills, both 29, received safety briefings and met injured soldiers and servicemen’s widows.

‘This is incredibly delicate,’ says a source. ‘It was Wills and Kate‘s first trip to Hereford.

‘The regiment has special access and their role in protecting the royals is well known.

‘Their advice and help is vital to the safety of the Royal Family.’

Newlyweds Kate and Wills are expected to return to the headquarters to take part in a staged rescue mission that will see armed SAS teams raid a 2-storey building called The Killing House.

‘The training is designed to show VIPs exactly what to expect if they are taken hostage and how to behave so that they do not interfere with the rescue,’ the source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘These soldiers do this day in and day out so there would be no risk to William and Kate but it could be a little scary.’
