Met cop who guarded Kate Middleton convinced there are still ‘evil men’ in the force


The former Police Officer of the Year warned a ‘wall of silence’ is protecting corrupt cops like David Carrick and Wayne Couzens A decorated former police officer who spent 17 years working for the Metropolitan Police and once guarded Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, has warned there are still “evil men” like David Carrick and Wayne Couzens hiding in the force. 

Ricky Haruna, who was a police constable for Britain’s biggest force and was awarded several commendations, has lifted the lid on her own experiences there.

A decorated former Metropolitan Police officer who guarded members of the Royal Family – incliuding Kate, Princess of Wales – is convinced there are still “evil men” like Wayne Couzens and David Carrick embedded in the force who are “hiding in plain sight”. Ricky Haruna, 46, a former police officer of the year, has claimed there is a “wall of silence” running tough the ranks of Britain’s biggest police force protecting the likes of Sarah Everard’s killer Couzens and serial rapist Carrick. The former officer has lifted the lid on her own experiences during her 17-year career as a police constable at Scotland Yard.

“ I was trusted to guard Kate Middleton when she was dating Prince William. It was such a serious role – yet I had colleagues whose behaviour was absolutely reprehensible. Why would you put these guys in such a position of power and trust?”

The bombshell revelations from Ms. Haruna come after a damning report published last week condemned the Met as institutionally racist, misogynistic, and homophobic.

The review’s author, Baroness Louise Casey, called on the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command in which Couzens and Carrick both worked to be disbanded. Ms. Haruna said: “Sadly, I’ve seen it all with my own eyes. There’s a wall of silence in the Met that protects these awful characters. You look at Carrick and the things he did. That wasn’t by chance.”He was a repeat offender able to work unchecked and keep getting away with it. He was complained about and nothing happened – that just gave him even more confidence to carry out increasingly evil crimes while wearing the badge.

“It’s this culture that allows people like him and Couzens to do what they did. It starts with smaller behaviours that go unchecked and become more sinister.”

Ms. Haruna had to endure battles with racism after joining the Metropolitan Police as a PC in 2002, the Mirror has reported.
