Harry’s mate’s mug­ger jailed

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SE­RIAL mug­ger who robbed a friend of Prince Harry as he chat­ted to the Royal on a mo­bile has been caged for two years.

Win­ful Tay­lor, 27, was on bail for a sim­i­lar of­fence and wear­ing an elec­tronic tag when he and a hooded ac­com­plice pinned Thomas van Strauben­zee, 29, to the floor and stole his two mo­bile phones and wal­let – all as Prince Harry lis­tened.

Kingston Crown Court heard Tay­lor is al­ready serv­ing an 18-month sen­tence for the at­tempted rob­bery of teach­ing as­sis­tant An­dre Mor­ris, which was car­ried out on Oc­to­ber 25 last year – a month be­fore he mugged Mr van Strauben­zee on Novem­ber 30.

The sen­tences will run con­cur­rently.
