    London Police chief: Officers can't babysit royals | World news | The Guardian (c) AP

    LONDON (AP) — London's Metropolitan Police chief says his officers cannot interfere in the private lives of the royal family, not even to prevent Prince Harry from going bare at a Las Vegas party.

    Commission Bernard Hogan-Howe told a Parliamentary committee on Tuesday that his department was reviewing the role of Royal Protection officers in the incident, in which Harry was photographed naked.

    However, Hogan-Howe told the panel: "Our role is to maintain the security of our protected individual. They have to lead a normal life and we have to strike a balance between intrusion into their life and keeping them safe."

    He added "there is a golden line that cannot be crossed, which is getting involved in the social lives of the principals."


    That'll upset the Heil's readers who wanted to haul the RPOs over the coals.

    Problem is that the RPO's in question appeared to be getting involved in the social lives of those they were assigned to - otherwise why emphasise it?
