Harry’s mate’s mugger jailed
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.
