LONDON —

Police are investigating an incident in which an officer believed to be guarding the home of Prince William and his wife the former Kate Middleton accidentally fired a shot inside a vehicle.

Metropolitan Police confirmed Friday that the incident involving a Specialist Operations officer happened last week in north Wales.

Police said the shot damaged the floor of the vehicle but did not injure either of the officers inside.

The officer involved has been removed from firearms duty while the incident is investigated.

William and his wife, now known as the Duchess of Cambridge, have a rented home in Wales, where the prince is a Royal Air Force search and rescue helicopter pilot.

The royal couple has managed to stay out of the limelight while in Wales.
