Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

You might have noticed something strange about the people around Kate Middleton when you looked at paparazzi pictures or pictures from public events - there are rarely, if ever, any male bodyguards surrounding her. Now, this might not be something that seems all that strange, but when you find out why, you'll be shocked.

It might seem like it isn't a traditional job for a female, especially when there are royals in question. Really, the RPOs (Royal Protection Officers) have to do a lot of standing around, opening car doors, and basically just make sure that the Princess is safe wherever she is. So why aren't there men doing this job? Well, it seems that it was ordered by Prince Charles that Kate have a female bodyguard near her at all times. Why?

He doesn't want her to be "compromised" like Princess Diana was.

“From the start, when Kate became engaged, it was Charles who made the women-only stipulation, saying he didn’t want her compromised in any way,” said a former member of S014, the Scotland Yard unit responsible for royal protection to Express.

Princess Diana famously fooled around with her bodyguards, and there were even rumors of love children or that Prince Harry came from the bodyguard. The man, who was mysteriously killed several months after the news broke, was one of the loves of Diana's life. She was captured on tape saying, “I was only happy when he was around. I should never have played with fire and I got burnt.”

For now, Kate has policewomen looking after her, and the group has formed a friendship. According to Express, the choice of policewomen does not surprise Ken Wharfe, Diana’s former bodyguard, who told them, “I’ve heard that Prince Charles is more involved in who is being appointed. And if he asks for more women he will get more women. The trouble with Diana was she got on better with men. She did have a woman once but she didn’t last long. You have to have a good chemistry with the person you’re looking after.”
