It’s our pleasure to announce Dai Davies will be returning to Saunton Sands Hotel for a series of enthralling talks during May.

Dai is one of the world’s experts in security and investigation, a former Head of Royal Protection and Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police. His long and distinguished career with the Met Police service culminated with his appointment in 1995 as Operational Unit Commander in charge of Royal Protection for HM The Queen and the Royal Family. He is also a media expert on security terrorism and policing related issues and is a regular on BBC, Sky and international media outlets.

We’re delighted to welcome Dai to Saunton, his breadth of knowledge and intriguing insight on royal protection will make for a fantastic seminar. Dai’s talks will include the history of royal protection, from Edward VIII Patriot or Traitor, and a talk on Princess Diana - the facts!

The talks will be held during dinner each evening in the Terrace Lounge and will include: 

Friday 20th May: The History of Royalty Protection - How do you protect HM Queen and the British Royal Family?

This will range from 1760 to the present day and will include A fascinating historical insight into the countless attacks and incidents from George 111 to present day. The topic is particularly relevant at this time as the planning of the Queen’s and Royal family celebrations will have huge implications for Scotland Yard’s Royalty Protection Command! This is a unique area of Policing. The history will illustrate and comment on how Her Majesty The Queen and her family have been or threatened with an attack.

Saturday 21st May: The Princess Diana story!

The true account of what happened in Paris from both a Scotland Yard perspective and the author’s long and detailed research. As well as the lead-up to events from the Bashier interview in 1995 to her death in August 1997.  Almost twenty-five years ago.
