One of Queen Elizabeth’s bodyguards has been arrested on suspicion of drug possession after white powder was found in a St James’s Palace bathroom.
The bodyguard is said to have been found with nine bags of cocaine and ketamine among his possessions. Police had searched his room and car at Wellington Barracks.
The Coldstream Guardsman was arrested on Tuesday by the Royal Military Police and has been removed from ceremonial duties pending the outcome of the investigation.
An army spokesperson has said: ‘We can confirm that a soldier from the Coldstream Guards has been arrested for a suspected drug offence by the Royal Military Police.
‘It would be inappropriate to comment further.’
