A former bodyguard has refuted claims that King Charles’ security forces used the wrong hands.

Clips circulating online zoomed in on the King’s bodyguards as he met with crowds in London, and people believed they were using rubber hands.

People said they were bait for guns hidden under their coats, but Will Geddes has explained why that can’t be true.

A security expert with almost 30 years’ experience, Will told Metro.co.uk that while it could be a tactic in the US, it was not used by guards in the UK.

He said: “These are definitely not wrong hands; I can understand why some people might think it was because of an incredibly tight grip, but they definitely aren’t.

‘It’s not a tactic used at all in the UK, there could be all sorts of other tricks and stunts security officers use to ensure high profile individuals are safe but this would not be one of them.’

He said bodyguards in the US are more “trigger-friendly” and it can be used there, but in the UK the “risk is too high”.

He added: “There are so many potential problems if they did.

“The reasons why they must be fake are obvious.”

“They couldn’t have their hands on a gun and then have wrong hands. It also looks pretty obvious if they would have wrong hands.

“It’s just unnecessary and there are just so many issues that can potentially be complicated by the wrong hands.

“Again, when holding a gun, there are potential safety issues related to loading and even firing the gun unexpectedly.


Why Prince Charles’ Bodyguards DO NOT Use Wrong Hands

Will Geddes, Security Specialist has explained why King Charles bodyguard NOT Use wrong hands

  • It’s “unnecessary” and there are security issues
  • It would hinder officers rather than help them if they tried to quickly grab their gun
  • Officials couldn’t react fast enough

“The theory one could speculate on is that it allows the Personal Protection Officer (PPO) to get to their gun super fast.

“But to be honest, it should be about assessing the crowd much better, assessing the threat much better, planning the event or the walkabout much better.

“Rather than being in a position where I can grab my gun and draw it quickly.

“In the 30 or so years that I’ve worked in the security industry, I’ve never used rubber hands.”

He added: “It’s something that could be used in the US, where they’re more trigger-happy, but not in this country.

“Especially at the moment and after Chris Kaba’s death, the police and security forces are even more vigilant than usual.”
