Meghan Markle was ‘kidnapped’ by the SAS as part of a mock exercise, as she prepares to become a member of the Royal Family.
The bride-to-be was accompanied by her fiancé Prince Harry as she spent two days in the Herefordshire countryside with Britain’s elite special forces to train her to deal with a potential terrorist attack.
Speaking to The Daily Express, a former SAS officer said, “Even though Meghan will have known the enemy was not real, I guarantee that she will have been petrified.”
“That’s why live ammo is used, so she knows what real gunfire sounds like should, God forbid, she ever be in a hostile situation.”
During the mock exercise, Meghan was reportedly kidnapped and “treated like a hostage”, and taught how to form a relationship with her kidnappers.
A military source added that the training, which is given to most senior Windsors, was offered to Meghan ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry “because of heightened security issues at this time.”
The former actress is already under guard 24/7, and it’s believed that 30 elite SAS troops will guard Meghan and Prince Harry on their wedding day.
