Anne reunited with kidnap bid police hero

Quote
The Princess Royal is due to be reunited with the Royal Protection officer who saved her from kidnap in London more than 30 years ago.

Jim Beaton, a former Metropolitan Police inspector, was shot three times as he put himself between Anne and a gunman during the failed kidnap bid in 1974.

Anne reunited with police hero

Quote
The Princess Royal has met the Royal Protection Officer who saved her from kidnap more than 30 years ago.

She was briefly reunited with Jim Beaton, a former Metropolitan Police inspector, who was shot three times as he put himself between Anne and a gunman during the failed kidnap bid in 1974.

Mr Beaton, who wore the George Cross he was awarded for his actions, said the Princess had "not changed a bit" since the night of the attack outside Buckingham Palace.

Wow, I didn't know she got nearly kidnapped. hide Thanks Alex for the story and pics.

"The Extraordinary Heroes exhibit" is a good idea to honor all those great people who did so much for others! thumbsup
I'm somewhat sick of the rubbish entertainment today. All those people who can't do anything and haven't contributed anything to society get all the attention. Like Paris Hilton or Flavor Flav and lame entertainment shows like Big Brother.
Like in a recent article about Kate Middleton: "Celebrities are the new royals", all those celebs act as rolemodels today and the younger generation grows up adapting their way of life and morals. I would go to the exhibit if it were close to my home. sigh

Thanks for the article Alexandrine.  Glad she's getting to see him again... TCP up until about a year ago I didn't know either, but I had set my DVR to look for things to do with BRF and it taped a program that went over the events of that night.  I was floored to say the least and for most of the program I thought he couldn't have made it, was so thrilled to find out at the end he did. Wish I could remember the name of the program I might be on the internet somewhere...  dontknow  sorry

cool story!
I remember reading about that attack in a book about HM for some reason?!  huh
About how dangerous times were for her and her family, you know with the attempt on her life in Australia, and the Montbatton killing, and how Al-Quaida & Taliban are threatening Harry!

Princess on Court Street
http://www.royalgazette.com/article/20110606/NEWS/706069993
Quote
Princess Anne went to North Hamilton yesterday, in what one community member said was probably the first time someone from the British Royal Family had visited the district.

The Princess Royal was there as part of the Caribbean-Canada Emerging Leaders Dialogue (CCELD).

As president of the two-week programme, the Princess arrived on the Island on Saturday evening, and yesterday oversaw briefings to (CCELD) Fellows on Financial Services at the offices of XL and a briefing on social issues, held at the Chewstick Foundation.

Executive Director of Chewstick Gavin Smith said Princess Anne watched over a discussion of rebuilding the community to help eliminate anti-social behaviour.

He said the Royal visit demonstrated the advancements made in the North Hamilton community.

“It was amazing,” he said. “It was great to have her at Chewstick and great to have her in the Back of Town area.

“I believe it is the first time a Royal has come to this part of Bermuda. It’s a great testament to how far North Hamilton has come.”

Well deserved by Wootton Bassett and Anne looked lovely in the pics and on the TV  flirt

Glad they did not send the Cambs as this was too important for the grinning loony and morbid zombie.
