What is your answer?
I would imagine all of them would have some part in it.
b.) The Royal Military Police- Close Protection Wing. in association with MI6. They work together but the overall protection comes from the CPW.
My answer is the secret intelligence service MI6. I was trained by the MI6 on the (counter-intelligence course) and most of them are members of the royal family close security escort.
Let’s go with C- The Queens Guard as it is ceremonial
the one and only who protect the royal family is MI6, 100% sure is the one in charge to obtained and verify the information regarding the national security of the country and the royal family secure, the undercover agents and the secure of the premesis and transfer the instructions to the other gaencys.
SCOTTLAN YARD ARE THE FIRST RESPONCE CP for Royal Family ( they are usaual ex SAS)
The Queens Guard most certainly – key word being “Ceremonial”. I stayed at the “Guards/Cavalry Club” in London last year with a few of them-fine chaps they are!
I would have to say the Royal Military Police.
a.) Household Cav…but the Metropolitan Police do the real deal –
Royalty Protection (SO14) provides protection of the monarch and other members of the royal family. This unit is divided into Residential Protection, Personal and Close Protection and the Special Escort Group who provide mobile protection.
Specialist Protection (SO1) provides armed personal protection services for ministers and public officials at threat from terrorism, including, visiting heads of government and other public figures.
