Prince William delves into UK’s secretive spy world
    2019-04-09  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AS one of the most recognizable public figures in the world, Britain’s Prince William would not make as an effective 007 as legendary fictional spy James Bond.

But that did not stop the heir to the British throne spending the last three weeks working with the security services, including in Bond’s own foreign intelligence unit MI6.

The Duke of Cambridge ended the top-secret attachment — which also included a week with domestic intelligence service MI5 and cybersecurity agency GCHQ — on Saturday.

The prince, who has a military background, began the secondment at the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) — better known as MI6 — whose spies work around the world gathering information and furthering British interests.

The father-of-three then switched over to the Security Service — MI5 — to observe how counter-terrorism teams conduct investigations. The duke finished his foray into spycraft at the communications monitoring agency GCHQ in Cheltenham in western England.

The prince is no stranger to the world of security.

After graduating in 2005 from university in St. Andrews in Scotland, he spent seven and a half years in the military, before completing active service as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.
