Tabloid Get Queens Chauffeur Suspended

Interesting article on how the Royal Chauffeur for the Queen of England was duped by two tabloid reporters who posed as wealthy businessmen and paid him for the tour of the Queen’s vehicles. Of course you can see the major security breach here. I’d likely say his days in that position are numbered.

Executive Protection Agents can also learn from this story. Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by the press or the paparazzi and NEVER compromise yourself for a few dollars.

Thanks to EP Agent Fred Davis for the story lead.

Security vs. Paparazzi at Gisele Wedding

Gunfire drowned out the wedding bells at the take-two weekend wedding of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen. Two paparazzi photographers claim that members of the Brazilian beauty’s security team opened fire on them when they were caught snapping pictures of the couple’s nuptials in Costa Rica on Saturday.

I so hope there is another side to this story, because this is exactly what NOT to do in this type of situation. All I can hope for is that it was an overzealous rent-a-cop or a “still drunk from the bachelor party” groomsman and not an assigned EP Agent, because this gives the profession a bad name. Keeping in mind that that most of the information is coming from the Paparazzi, the only thing these actions did was bring a wave of negative press to the Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen (Exactly what they were trying to avoid.)
