SCOTLAND YARD is studying ways of cutting the cost of security for Royal visits abroad.

Mark Baker, author of Llwynywermod: A Royal Home In Wales, reveals that the 192-acre estate, which the Prince bought for £1.2million two years ago and has recently restored, was for three centuries the home of the Griffies-Williams family, direct descendants of Henry VIII’s second wife.
