is it really that bad working for the royal family?

Prince William and Kate Middleton were said to be 'surprised and upset' today after their chief bodyguard quit to go and run security for a private contractor at the UK's most famous high-security psychiatric hospital.

Yes, you would imagine that surprised would cover it.

According to the Daily Mirror, chief Inspector John Hourihan will leave the glamour and celebrity of working for the young royals to head up security at Broadmoor. Instead of rubbing shoulders with celebrity and royalty, he'll now be hanging out with dangerous folks with severe personality disorders, like Moors murderer Ian Brady.

A source said: “He was brought in to use his wealth of experience to establish the security team surrounding the Duchess after her engagement to Prince William was announced and has travelled with them extensively, latterly on their successful royal tour to Singapore and Borneo.

"But after serving as an Scotland Yard officer for 30 years he has decided to move on and try something new."

Heading up security at Broadmoor will certainly be that.
