Will And Kate Kidnap Training: Royal Couple Allegedly Practicing For Olympics

As fears mount that Will and Kate may be a target of terrorists during this summer's Diamond Jubilee and Olympic celebrations in London, word is the Royal Couple have been getting substantial anti-kidnap training by Special Air Services (SAS), a corps of the British Army constituted in 1950.

Will and Kate have apparently made several visits to SAS counter-terrorism headquarters in Hereford, UK, to learn what they have to do if terrorists try to snatch them -- skills that could help save their lives.

According to Daily Star, "members of the elite regiment taught them survival skills," and the couple "handled guns in case they have to use them in a real-life kidnap."

"Kate and William have been to the base a couple of times. It is beyond top secret," a royal insider says.

Will and Kate reportedly impressed the SAS team with their approach, with insiders saying they "took it all in their stride".
