A woman’s body has been discovered in the park pond in front of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Kensington Palace home.
It is understood that the body was found on Saturday last week in the Round Pond as Kate and William and their three children were meeting the Queen at Balmoral in Scotland. Detectives are still trying to identify the body but the Metropolitan Police confirmed the woman’s death is not believed to be suspicious. Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank also live at Ivy Cottage within the palace grounds.
The discovery was made last weekend after a body was retrieved from one of the ornamental lakes at the front of the London palace. Police discovered the corpse in one of the ornamental lakes at the front of the London palace while searching for artist Endellion Lycett Green, granddaughter of poet laureate Sir John Betjeman. She was later found alive, the corpse turned out to be that of another woman whose identity has not yet been revealed.
As reported by the EWN, Prince Andrew rushed to visit the Queen at Balmoral for ‘crisis talks’ earlier this week.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “The death is being treated as unexplained at this time, but is not thought to be suspicious. Inquiries are ongoing.” He added that Endellion’s family were contacted “as part of inquiries to establish the identity of the deceased.”
