Cost-cutting is affecting how the royal family's protected, says Diana's former bodyguard

Introducing The Royal Box, Yahoo UK's brand new show on all things royal.

Presented by Kate Thornton, episode six features Diana's former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe. Charged with protecting the Princess for five years, until her separation from Prince Charles, Wharfe also oversaw William and Harry’s protection during their early years.

Wharfe discusses Diana’s desperate, and ongoing, desire for normality and the royal family’s “hatred” of the press.

Elsewhere, royal correspondent Richard Palmer and journalist and royal biographer Claudia Joseph discuss the palace’s handling of the latest Thomas Markle interview and what kind of Queen the Duchess of Cambridge will one day be.

Plus, we look at what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have planned for the remainder of the summer.
