January 2017 Talk
David Reeve MBE was Chief Superintendent of Police in charge of security for all members of the Royal Family while in Norfolk from 1988 to 2000. Some very significant events took place during this time but in addressing the NNU3A audience on 18th January 2017 he took great pains to avoid revealing any confidences arising from his many contacts with each of the royal family members He did, however, entertain us royally with a very human, warm and humorous talk. He portrayed himself as the man to whom funny things are likely to happen… and frequently do. His anecdotes had the audience in stitches … but he was always the butt of the joke. We were left with the perception of a man who has great respect for the Royal Family and who appreciates them as individuals.
This was a refreshing change from the “reveals all” style of reporting which has earned some ex-employees of the Royal household a fortune. There was no doubt that our speaker had great responsibility but it was clear that he had, in addition to his professional policing skills, the gift of insight which allowed him to understand the unwritten rules of dealing with those under his protection and the wide variety of types including obsessives and terrorists who might have convinced themselves to do harm. David Reeve is still Chairman of the flower show at Sandringham and says that he cannot avoid his eyes continually checking everything around him as he accompanies members of the Royal Family around the display.
Our large audience warmed to David Reeve MBE and we felt privileged to have him as our first speaker of 2017. Some of his stories will be told time and time again.
