Kate Middleton’s bodyguard Emma Probert is no Mary Poppins!

But Probert was not at the royal wedding to protect the bride’s now-famous white frock, but to protect her life. Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge is among the latest A-listers to enlist a female bodyguard with the task of defending their lives.

So did Probert attend the royal honeymoon of Will & Kate on the luxury yacht?

Other celebrities who have had or still have female bodyguards include:

•    Prince William
•    Nicole Kidman
•    Katie Price
•    Justin Bieber

Women may seem an unlikely candidate for the position of bodyguard, until some key points are factored in:

•    They blend in easily, passing for an assistant, nanny or other entourage member
•    Are highly trained with firearms, protective driving, counter-surveillance, bomb search and more defensive strategies
•    Are underestimated if their position is known
