Elite UK troops train Duchess of Cambridge to protect against kidnap threat – NYPOST.com

The Duchess of Cambridge was put through a grueling course run by Britain’s elite Special Air Service (SAS) to protect her against kidnap.

Catherine, 29, went through the personal protection program because her profile has soared following her wedding to Prince William, The Sun reported Wednesday.

Her new-found royal status has earned her millions of admirers — but also made her a target for terrorists, abductors and fanatics.

The course — described as “very tough, physically and mentally” — has been taken by other royals as well as politicians and people working in dangerous countries.
