Senior policewoman to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge resigns

The senior police officer in charge of protecting Prince William and wife Kate at their home in Norfolk has dramatically quit her post after apparently criticising her force publicly on social media.

Norfolk and Suffolk assistant chief constable Sarah Hamlin, 48 - who earned a salary of £100,000 - announced her departure after 30 years’ service in a series of controversial tweets today.

The officer was appointed in 2014 to lead the Royalty Protection team providing security to William, Kate, Prince George and Princess Charlotte at their home Anmer Hall on the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

But this morning she astonished her 3,600 followers on her official Twitter account by saying that she was leaving as her ‘values’ no longer fitted with the force.

She tweeted: ‘After 30 years @NorfolkPolice I’ve resigned to the fact that my values no longer fit the org. I can’t make a difference, support front-line.’

In a later tweet, she posted: 'And so I wish colleagues & friends all the best. Let’s hope policing can recover & the officers & staff welfare is prioritised.’

Do you think this actually has anything to do with W&K? 


I don’t know, it would be interesting to know what values she is discussing.



The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share four new photographs of Prince George to mark his third birthday.
They were taken by photographer Matt Porteous at their home in Norfolk in mid-July.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess hope that people will enjoy seeing these new photographs. They would like to thank everyone for all the lovely messages they have received as Prince George celebrates his third birthday.”

Photographer Matt Porteous said: “I really enjoyed the opportunity to take these photographs of Prince George. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. I’m honoured that they have decided to share these images with the public to mark his third birthday.”

Can’t believe it’s been three years already! 


Gifset in honour of the fifth wedding anniversary of William and Catherine (3/5): the Balcony kiss.

Shortly after the Royal party had arrived at Buckingham Palace, William and Catherine made an appearance on the Palace Balcony, along with members of both families and their page boys and bride maids. After gentle coaxing from her new husband, Catherine agreed to not one, but two kisses. The crowds went crazy.


The firstborn son of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was born on July 22, 2013 at 4:24pm, weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces (3.80 kg). This marked the second time that three generations of direct heirs to the British throne have been alive at the same time, a situation that last occurred between 1894 and 1901, in the last seven years of the reign of Queen Victoria. His Royal Highness is third-in-line to the throne and on July 24, 2013, it was announced that the baby would be called His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. The Prince was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace on October 23, 2013.

Happy 3rd Birthday, HRH Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge!
