Michael Trestrail

Queen's bodyguard<

separator

Commander Trestrail, who served as Queen's Elizabeth II personal bodyguard for 16 years, was forced to resign in 1982 over revelations by British newspapers about his frequent sexual relations with a male prostitute. It later emerged that Trestrail had protected the Queen and supervised her security for years, but had only been security vetted some three or four months before his resignation.

The scandal came to light when Trestrail's lover, noting the publicity swirling around Buckingham Palace intrusion by Michael Fagan (who had found his way to the Queen's bedroom), tried to sell his story to a British newspaper.
