Yesterday (20th March) marked 50 years since Ian Ball attempted to kidnap Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth II's daughter.

Apparently when Ball told her to get into his car she replied: "Not bloody likely."

Ball was taken down by a boxer who punched him in the face and he was later awarded the George Medal by Queen Elizabeth II.

Today the King's sister, 73, enjoys a very high popularity rating amongst the British public for her country's service and no-nonsense attitude...
