Fierce Is The Only Word For The Duchess Of Cornwall's All-Female Security Team

Bow to the strong women of the Persian Gulf.

So fierce, even Beyoncé would approve.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, paid a royal visit to the United Arab Emirates this week, where an all-female security team accompanied her around:

Camilla’s protective squad were picked from among the more than 50 women who serve in the UAE’s presidential guard, according to the website Emirates Woman. From left to right, they are Shaima al Kaabi, Basima al Kaabi, Hannan al Hatawi (hidden behind the duchess), Nisreen al Hamawi and Salama al Remeithi, per the Royal Collection Trust.

During their visit to the Gulf state, the duchess and Prince Charles advocated for religious tolerance and encouraged women to take on more leadership roles.

But it seems these security guards are already making their own statement. Three of the women climbed Mount Everest earlier this year.
